First my condolences to the family, friends and survivors of the Connecticut school shooting. My prayers are with you.
After reading many of the posts on internet threads regarding the President's Speech I determined that many are from ignorant dumbasses that feel their opinions mean shit.
Who am I to talk?
I am an American. I am an experienced public school teacher with a M.Ed. I am a law enforcement and military gun dealer and manufacturer. I am a Sheepdog!
My kids have been shooting since they were 5 to 6 years old. My kids have high self-esteems and are honor students. My kids would survive a home invasion if home alone.
Why do Americans care about the talk of new gun laws?
Because Americans have a history of dying for our freedoms. Because Americans have a history of dying for the freedoms of other people around the world. Because our barely re-elected POTUS with his cronies are talking about restricting one of our freedoms. Because while showing real emotions and speaking of Americas support for Sandy Hook survivors he plants the seed in his speech for gun control. "We can't tolorate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change." Restricting Our Freedoms by making new laws would not have made this individual not attack and kill these victims just like the "War on Drugs" hasn't kept people from getting and using illegal drugs. This was the result of a mad man and a soft target that had no sheepdogs to protect the flock from a rabid wolf.
The POTUS and his cronies can "Talk the Talk" about something no laws could have prevented in this case. These so called Leaders want you to forget they couldn't make a decision while our US Consulate in Benghazi was under attack, redirected blame for the Americans killed and then made excuses. What did our unbiased News Media say about this? Baa, Baa, Baaaaaaaaaaa!
Leaders take responsibility for their actions or lack of actions. General Petraeus' resignation without being asked is an example of this. He fukd up so he stepped down and apologized.
Imagine if our leaders and media could focus their time and effort into educating and strengthening laws that would save hundreds of thousands of lives like our DUI and SEATBELT laws nationally!
What did YOU do today?
I was the lead investigator in a collision investigation who ended my day by writing the Toe Tag of a young mother who got ejected in a rollover collision and was killed because SHE DIDN'T WEAR HER SEAT BELT. I looked at her kids photos in her wallet after I positively ID'ed her body at the hospital. While I was doing this my friends (who also have children) did the NOK at her home while her children waited in another room to see why the State Police stopped by their home. This wasn't my first rodeo but when children are involved and we are this close to the holidays it SUCKS!
Why did I just rant? Because sometimes sheep need a shepherd!
Don't drink and drive! Wear your seat belt! and HUG your fukn kids!
If you want to save lives then get involved in promoting the three ways I just mentioned!
May GOD BLESS the victims and survivors of Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting and may God Bless you and your loved ones too. Have a happy and safe holiday season!
