American Police out of control

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't want to be in the police. As someone with absolutely 'no skin in the game' I'd say ban guns. No guns = no awful killings. 

It's very unfortunate that the 2nd amendment isn't crystal clear:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

To me, it's very clear.  Personal gun ownership isn't a right.  You have to be in a militia.  Be nice if they'd have defined that term.  Maybe 'militia' wasn't as loose in meaning back then as it is today.

The big problem comes from the changing meaning of "regulated." Back then, it didn't mean some overseeing authority imposing limitations on gun ownership, but rather the sense of a systematic, consistent organizational model, rather than a rag-tag assembly of armed men. Gun ownership itself was a given, part of a person's everyday equipment for protection of their life and property - from animals as well as other people - in a world in which the concept of a governmental police force was still decades away, and in eary America where a standing army was still non-existent.

CNN:
Since March 16, when eight people were killed and one wounded in shootings at three Atlanta-area spas, at least 50 mass shootings have been reported in the United States. CNN defines a mass shooting as a shooting with four or more casualties -- dead or wounded -- excluding the shooter.

So I'll start my very own Militia: Gay Men that will Shoot You if you fuck with us-- GMSUFU.

I'll get a flag and everything. Maybe we'll have cookouts and target practice.

It'll be awesome.

Just remember- if you take away everyone's guns, guys like me will be the only ones with guns because I WILL NOT COMPLY.

So, James, do you have any suggestions about what we should be doing to counteract this horrible trend of mass shootings for no apparent reason?  I think reducing guns in our society would be a place to start, but I know it's no panacea.  What do you suggest?

Good old Monty Python.

I think the only actual gay participant in that particular GMSUFU parade was the officer, who calls it 'silly' and 'a bit suspect' at the end. Oh, the irony...
