Reliving the 1960s

My God, I’ve been seeing the news about the teen Trayvon Martin’s death. It’s hella racially motivated and the dang cops near Orlando are not even bothering to investigate, saying either the witnesses misspoke on some of the facts, or that there was no one to refute the gunner’s claim that he acted in self-defense. That’s complete b******* if you ask me. By all means, are the cops attempting to let the guy get away with murder, since in their minds it’s just another n***** kid about to cause trouble. It’s not, and there’s 3 reasons to say this. #1 and most obvious, Trayvon wasn’t armed, he only went out to the local 7/11 to get some candy during the half-time break of an NCAA basketball game. #2, the gunman had been previously arrested for assaulting a police officer and had no business maintaining a gun license. #3, the final reason, Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” (or as I’ll put it; Shoot First, Ask Later) is hella racist and further more, the gunman acted as a self-appointed cop. I mean the cops can simply replay his 911 recording, and the recordings of the other witnesses. The fact is he failed to comply with an order to stay put and let the cops handle the situation if he felt threatened. Instead, he followed Trayvon and shot him in cold blood. That’s what’s called a hate crime. The reason that the gunman felt threatened by Trayvon, was as the man put it, “He’s black.” That’s enough evidence to convict him on that.

I’m going to make this very clear, I feel like I’m reliving the 1960s. I don’t see why we have to let this kind of nonsense happen. There’s no reason that America, or any other nation, should be arming its citizens to the teeth. This is exactly why I think that gun control is so desparately needed. Anyone who wants a gun to either protect themselves, or to hunt, should have that right. After all, we have the 2nd Amendment for that reason. However, I don’t think that people need assault, automatic or semi-automatic weaponry, nor do I think that people should be allowed to own guns in an unlicensed fashion. If you want to own a gun, simply take the necessary tests to receive a federally issued (not state-issued) license and have your gun registered in a federal database. I think that makes a lot of sense, and I also think that it will do the country some good. Let’s make America safe and secure for the next generation, and not one that allows yahoos to get guns and kill innocent people for their own sadistic pleasure.
