America——-Do you need this? Are you happy the way that you’re getting news like this……..gunman in the mall shooting or
A AR15 shooting at the children….or gunman shot and killed and the police found short gun, pistol, AR15 and a bag full of ammunition. The recent one being a guy who did not get paid for the work that he is done from the company….. took a shot gun and some other guns and shot and killed 12 people, injured many and disrupted a day and made the taxpayers spend millions of dollars to fold and clear what he unfolded. Is it a reason to kill 12 people?
Is this the America that you are proud of? We are all proud of … America… the first one to land man on the moon….. America the super power….. America the country that helps and protects the world when there is a need…… There are millions of good things that can be said about this United States of America. Is this America forefront in gun violence? It is a shame to think that no one can do anything about this.
Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting stirred up a lot of publicity and media coverage was so much that everybody thought that there will be a change in the gun law. Shamefully nothing was done. The bill for universal background was defeated in the senate. Since then there were few more shootings and still nothing is done. Why?
Now that is one aspect. But there is a bigger picture that we do not know. According to statistics……61% of the firearm related violent death in the United States is gun suicide. Even though these suicides were gone unnoticed, Harvard study shows that majority these people that kill themselves get the gun from their own house and quite a few these gun suicides were committed within days or weeks after purchasing the firearm.
Here are some more statistics:
American gun related death is 19.5% higher than that of any industrialized country.
2007 statistics ….. There were 9 guns for every 10 people. And 2012 Gallup poll states, “43 percent of those surveyed reported having a gun in the home.”
Handguns are used on more than 87% of the violent incidents.
These are few of the statistics and read the links for more detailed data.
We now know the statistics….we know that it is happening quite frequently in America… we know after each of these violent incidents in the recent past the media went on for couple of days with how….. why …. Where……what….. and as usual interview former FBI officers, CIA officers, psychiatrists, psychologists, and of course doctor Drew too. In CNN and other news media they discuss and debate for few days and the news dies down till the next incident unfolds.
Why nothing has been done:
President Obama was trying to have control gun sale ever since he was a senator but could do it why?
I was checking Wikipedia and that states “The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms from infringement. It was adopted on December 15, 1791”.
1791???? Yes in 1791 when there were few people in the whole of America and they needed the guns to protect themselves from the animals. Now remember, it was in 1791 and there were no magazines to load the guns, no high power guns that discharges – I don’t know how many – 20, 30, 50 rounds a minute… this second amendment was adopted probably at a time after the shot the shooter sits and hammer gunpowder into his barrel and that might have taken few minutes I suppose.
The second amendment, mind you, was written during a time when there was no national military and the revolutionary war was won by a bunch of farmers. So the idea that everyone has the right to a weapon was to protect the country in case of another British incursion.
Do we in this modern world need to follow the second amendment of 1791? If we change the laws to restrict people from carrying a heavy weapon that can shoot 30+ rounds a minute, will affect the rights of people? In fact, does anyone need to carry a gun at all?
2. NRA – The National Rifle Association of America:
The National Rifle Association was founded in 1871. They are the one and only body that is quashing any effort taken by the government to restrict gun in this country. How can NRA do that you may ask? They have the money power. They have your representative to the congress in their pocket. You need to see this statistics, you will be appalled…..
Click the following link to see how many Democrats and Republicans you voted receive funds from NRA and how much money each received for their campaign: http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/toprecips.php?id=D000000082&cycle=2012.

How the NRA exerts influence over Congress:
The National Rifle Association uses campaign expenditures and a rating system based on members’ voting histories to exert influence over members of Congress.
261 candidates received donations in 2012
Totaling about $650,000………… 90% of this went to the Republicans.
Democrats received $74,000 and the Republicans received $583,646.
They are your chosen people.
Over 80 percent of the candidates funded by the NRA won their House or Senate races. Winners…. 2012 election results received a whopping $524,946….. and the Losers received $132,700
213 members of the 113th Congress received NRA dollars in 2012
In the recent election in 2012
Democrats in the Senate received $4500
Republicans in the Senate received $32,408
Democrats in the House received $45,050
Republicans in the House received $442,988
This is the same people that you have elected to represent you. Are they taking a bribe… I don’t know you decide. These numbers are very scary in 1990…in all the Republicans collected over $3 million.
The NRA functions as a lobbyist for gun manufacturers. Their main objective appears to be to frighten everyone so they will want to purchase a weapon.
NRA is a big giant with over $ 200 million in revenues and the support from the gun manufacturers to lobby against the anti-gun law. They have the support from politicians, your representatives.
Has this country gone completely asleep? Are you waiting for another incident to come and go and turn the other side? Are you going to allow every lobbyist in Washington to dictate our politicians and our government to do what they want?
Didn’t your representatives voted against the bill for background check? Isn’t it the bill the president put forth for the benefit of the American people? Do you want guns in your country? Do you want to see these acts go on in your America? Can anything done in the Democratic America or the dictators own your America?
As I was writing this there is another shooting in Chicago 5 dead 13 injured including a 3 year old and it is going over and over for the past 20 hrs.…… Okay here we go again another gun shooting in Kenya in a mall ………
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!…..WAKE UP.
What you do:
You are living in a democratic and a greatest land in the world…… America, be proud of it. And go after your representative and do the right thing…. Don’t wait and get no for an answer. If your representative is a NRA puppet change it or change him right away…. Make him or her resign… you choose them and you can take them out. You definitely don’t want gun on the streets and you can eliminate it… don’t let this post go like any other regular and go in vain.
Don’t let NRA run the country that you’re proud of …. only you should run this country through your chosen people…. Let that be that way……you may be a Republican or a Democrat but this is your America and be united to keep it that way.
