I can’t help but see a male as beta when they call for a ban on guns. What kind of nonsense is that? I find it even more cuckish when it is coming from a former military officer. They, of all people, should understand the importance of people being allowed to ban arms.
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) guest starred on Fox Business Network and tried to explain his stance on banning “assault weapons.”
In the wake of the deadly shooting at a Florida high school, there have been renewed calls for gun control, particularly for assault rifles like the AR-15, which was used in last week’s massacre.
Peters wrote an Op-Ed on the topic for The New York Post, explaining that he’s a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, but he doesn’t believe everyday citizens should have access to weapons “designed for mass murder.”
He said, “The demagogues who grow wealthy by convincing responsible gun owners that some shadowy government agency can’t wait to seize their deer rifles will have a great deal to answer for on Judgment Day.”
“They have put their reelection chances above the lives of American children,” Peters continued, “How can they live with themselves?”
“I own weapons, I hope I will always own weapons, but I don’t own weapons that are meant to kill other human beings specifically,” he added.
Peter also said he wonders how many more people will die from “military-grade weapons.”
Really? Any gun is designed to do damage. By his logic, we would need to get rid of all guns. I don’t know about you, but that’s not something I will stand for.
