Orlando is not the last time terrorists-of-a-certain-religion will mass murder American civilians. This is a fact.
The Democrats will do nothing to prevent this from happening again, and the Republicans will do little. Any approach that would actually eliminate the threat would be politically unpalatable. The Democrats are proposing, as is their wont, gun control legislation. Supposedly, this is in response to the slaughter, but in reality, they wanted to impose gun control anyway, and they are politicizing the events of Sunday morning in order to push their agenda.
Their proposed gun control legislation would use the Government’s arbitrary, secret, completely lacing in due process (and therefore Unconstitutional) Terror Watch List to deny Americans the right to purchase firearms. Also, they will outlaw firearms arbitrarily designated as “assault weapons,” (because they look kinda scary scary and military). But France’s extreme and draconian gun control laws didn’t stop either of the recent Paris massacres. What the Democrats are proposing would only create a larger pool of disarmed victims.
There will be another massacre. Are you willing to bet that there will not be?
It may happen at a shopping mall, or a theme park, or a football, or a church. American men, women, and children are going to die with the sounds of ‘Allahu Akbar’ ringing in their ears. And as the Imam at the press conference said, no one can predict where or when it will happen. It probably won’t happen at the White House or the Capitol (they’re gonna keep *their* guns); which is why the politicians really don’t care too much about stopping it.
So, here is my question: Are you willing to completely entrust your life to the same indifferent, incompetent Government that checked out Omar Mateen and decided he was not a threat? The same Government that is importing 200,000 immigrants from Islamic regions every year with the same or lower quality of background check that was given to Omar Mateen and Tashfeen Malik?
Or are you going to take your safety and survival as a personal responsibility?
