Ever since a string of tragic shootings in the U.S. occurred, resulting in loss of life and serious injuries, lawmakers trying to make a name for themselves have come up with a variety of ways to stomp on the Second Amendment. These ways have included extending background checks for those seeking to buy guns, higher taxes on guns and ammunition, lengthening waiting periods for purchases, limiting the amount of guns and ammo someone can purchase, etc.
Whenever I hear of a new proposal, I have to do the research to make sure it isn’t a joke. It never is. And that includes one of the latest ones. A Florida state senator has now proposed that anyone interested in buying a gun or ammunition should be legally required to first go through an anger management class. Once again, I am not making this stuff up.
Apparently, in this senator’s mind, only angry people hunt or engage in target practice or want to defend their families and homes. If you ask me, I think lawmakers who come up with these kinds of proposals need to go through a stupidity management class. If it proves impossible to manage their stupidity, they need to be removed from office.
This strategy would certainly go a lot further to improving our society than having potential gun and ammo buyers go through anger management courses. If lawmakers understood that they would be judged by how much sense their proposed laws make, they might realize that they need to spend their time on real issues and not on ones that only make it seem as if they’re trying to do something to solve a problem. Check out this FreedomOutpost.com article titled, “Democrat Bill Requires Anger Management Course for Ammunition Purchases.” Feel free to laugh or cry, depending on your mood.
Do you think the government has a right to require you to pass an anger management course prior to your purchase of guns and/or ammunition? What do you think is the lawmaker’s motivation for proposing something like that? Do you think there should be a committee to judge lawmakers on the types of laws they propose? I’d like to hear what you have to say about this.
