When is the government going to stop killing flies with sledgehammers?
By this I am talking about the ban on the number of rounds a weapon can have, the kind of weapon a person can own and the rights of the 2nd Amendment.
They don’t seem to care what they tear up or who they hurt they just want to take away our rights. In all of these shootings, no one is finding out why these people were shooting people. Were they mentally ill, were they on some kind of medication, did they have depression or what? The government and Obama immediately want to blame the guns. A gun by itself has never killed anyone and never will.
Obama has by executive privilege made the criminal better armed than the law abiding citizen. His next step will be to disarm all law abiding citizens.
Maybe before this happens we should look at what has happened in countries that have done this. England, gun crime has more than doubled, Australia, armed robbery up 69%, assaults using guns up 28%, murders using guns up 19%, home invasion up 21%.
Any country that gives up its right of self protection is overrun by the criminal element. Not to mention the fact that they have no protection from their own government, which is one of the purposes of the 2nd Amendment in the first place.
Another thing that is really sad is the media and the way they just ignore things or take recorded statements and edit them to throw suspicion the way they want it.
Example, right about the time of the school shooting in Connecticut there was an elementary school in China where 23 students were stabbed. The only American news media I have found that reported was Fox.
There have been several people who have used guns to protect themselves or others and no reports. A woman, (in Georgia) had to defend herself and two twin daughters from an invader even after she and her daughters hid from the man. The only place I have heard that was on talk radio.
I hope this has a happy ending but I don’t think it will. He is treading on sacred ground.

We’re inundated with self-help experts
Several years ago I wrote a column about self-help books. I had been in a large book store and there was a whole section devoted to books that are supposed to help one overcome a wide array of shortcomings. Well since then, it seems the self-help sections of book stores have grown immensely.
Their behavior seems somewhat hypocritical
Our state legislators are at it again.
Senate Bill 98 will prevent abortion coverage under any state or federal healthcare plan in Georgia except for a medical emergency. Apparently there is no exception even for rape or incest.

Where is accountability in regard to vet benefits?
Our legislators have no qualms sending our men and women in uniform into harms way. We who served and those who continue to serve do what is expected in service for our Country, even if it means the giving of our life. Eventually we become Veterans.

The art of orchestrating some conflict
I think I’m becoming too much of a television critic. But it’s fun.
It seems I can hardly watch television anymore without pointing out the flaws of the programming. And then I realize that without those flaws, the show would only last five minutes.

And what are those people smoking?
So this fellow asked me what I thought about the bill that passed the state House to allow a person to carry a gun into a church. I told him that I had never heard a sermon that bad nor a choir that much off key.
