Uncle Ted on Gun Control

What is so difficult about understanding the need to defend oneself from evil doers?  Not allowing citizens the ability to arm themselves against rioters, muggers, carjackers, thieves, rapists, terrorists, or anyone who attempt to do us harm is to do nothing but create more victims.

One Response to “Uncle Ted on Gun Control”

  1. I just watched this and the “carry-on-campus” video, and I just have this to say: I was only 2 minutes away from Cole Hall at 3:00 p.m. on NIU’s campus, Feb. 14th, 2008. That was the day Steven Kazmierczak decided to open fire on a defenseless group of people in an auditorium setting, killing 5 people and wounding 18 people before killing himself. I will tell you with absolute confidence that if we had the ability to carry hand guns on campus, someone, most likely one of the military personnel in that room, would have taken control of the situation before Steven could have fired a second or a third round. Instead, these people were left completely defenseless, crawling for their lives, and catching ricochet bullets in their bodies. I sometimes think about what would have happened if he did a copy cat of the VA Tech shooting, and gone to more places on campus to continue his murdering spree. He could have easily ventured my way, where I was sitting scared amongst a group of thirty people in a darkened classroom, waiting to hear if the shooter had been taken care of. The incident was done and over with long before cops came upon the scene. Imagine the damage that could have continued if Steven hadn’t shot himself when he did and there was no one there to meet him with a gun of their own. Yes. I am completely for the right to bear arms, and hope to do so one day.
