gun control, violence

A Continent

And so on this blogging day of Sunday, that day of rest, I find myself posting Orwellian like on this blog again this following post that was already posted on this blog sometimes a while ago because hey, it’s less writing sometimes, I think.

I turned on the computer just now to blog about Mardi Gras and what it’s meaning is, but instead I saw a Yahoo page that read, more people have lost their lives to gun violence here today in the country of America. And a friend tells me that the continent of America has the highest crime rate in the world because of the abundance of guns, and that guns are not allowed in Europe or something like that, and that Japan, with the highest population, has the lowest rate of crime, as they may not allow guns there and that in the country of America, one can buy a gun if they have a drivers licence or something. A license, a permit and permission for what reason. And what about that right to bear arms? The whole world is paying. And I am not sure what any of this means. And as I have written in what seems like every other blog posting, who invented guns? Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. And the news stories are endless of persons losing their lives to gun violence on a daily basis as the news stories were yesterday and the news story will be tomorrow with no end in sight, for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented. I could copy my blog entries over and over in my appeal to banish the gun industry and guns from every human being on the face of planet earth and to end the use of the images of guns in all forms of advertising, marketing, film, television and news media as I have written in blog posts of the past. It is a cycle that feeds on itself. Does not advertising influence society. Are the slaughters of wars debasing the value of human life? Will the beast, who or whatever it is, ever release it’s grip on mankind? Are the standards of social behavior declining? Is there a worldwide moral breakdown? Is society collapsing? Where is the world headed, is there hope? And one can turn the page of the newspaper to forget about these stories and atrocities of the world, yet they still exist.I am only one blogger, one voice. No one is free while others are oppressed. Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

A Gun Knife Show

And one this day here on planet earth according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall finds itself another one of those Sundays that has rolled around, the day of the sun, the day of rest, the sabbath, or is that Saturday. And yet I find myself blogging away. Okay, it’s actually Saturday according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall. This is just another one of those posts from my other blog. And so this post happens to be about a Kansas City Missouri Gun Knife Show . A Kansas City, Missouri gun and knife show? What? Hugh? Doesn’t that inner city seemingly bombed out of a ghetto war zone of a city where the only stores open are the churches and liquor stores and one has to be in before dark to avoid not being able to be in before dark, and the latest fashion trends are white t shirts being sold in stores the length of full length dresses for everyone to wear already have enough guns and gun violence going on other than to have gun expo advertisements being advertised all around town as if that town could be the wild wild west or something straight out of one of those cowboy and indians television shows in need of even more gun violence. And as I last I remember reading, isn’t that zip code of 64130 of where the highest crime rate in Kansas City Missouri occurs already known as The Murder Factory ? And yet those $2 off admission next weekend gun – knife show at the KCI Expo Center yellow stickers seem to be found everywhere stuck on those Kansas City daily newspapers and those gun and knife show commercials seem to be found everywhere on that inner city ghetto television encouraging a city already experiencing urban blight such as never seen before, maybe, to buy even more guns to kill oneself and others off in a crime industry that breeds more crime. And for what reason does that gun show listings website have the images of flags all over it? Is it a patriotic thing to kill people off or something. And what’s a patriot anyway, father of our country? And who’s country? And for what reason does the word patriot have the word riot in it. As I have heard it said that the image of the American flag propagates violence. And guns are the worst invention ever. And what would happen if there were no crime tomorrow, would a lot of people be out of a job? As it seems to be an industry that feeds upon itself. The film noir, marketing and advertising of guns and gun violence in all forms of media advertising that breeds gun violence which breeds crime, which breeds news stories about crime which breeds more marketing for crime and images of violence etc. And for what reason do crime dramas and images of gun violence make up about what seems like ninety nine percent of programming on American television. Does not advertising and programming influence and program society. If only guns could be banished from every human being on planet earth. And what would happen if all of those criminal, civil, supreme, federal, local and other kinds of court houses here on planet earth for this industry of crime would close tomorrow? Would even more people be out of a job? And is war a money racket. And who can stop the war. No one is free when others are oppressed. And I am one blogger. Is another world possible. And what, if anything does this have to do with a No Police State?

Gun Control

And if there is ever one thing that I can agree on with that Mayor of the city of New York as one of those citizens of the world, it would be the following New York Post Article titled “Mayor Bloomberg slams White House on gun control: report”. And the article says something about that the issue of gun control is not being addressed by that president of those United States of America, maybe. And I believe guns, the images, glorification, marketing and advertising of guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. If only guns could be banished from every human being on planet earth. Is another world possible. And this following article speaks for itself in its entirety from that New York Post website, and I thought to repost it because, hey, it’s less writing sometimes. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?

President Obama is under the gun when it comes to Mayor Bloomberg and his crusade against illegal weapons.

Bloomberg, generally considered a White House ally, put Obama on notice after he fired off a letter to the White House this month where he reportedly accused the president of dragging his feet when it comes to gun control, according to a report today.

In the March 3 letter sent from Bloomberg’s coalition, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the mayor points to a separate report the group sent the Obama administration last August, which laid out 40 recommendations to “improve enforcement of existing gun laws,” according to The Huffington Post.

The letter was co-signed by Boston Mayor Tom Menino.

“We appreciate the … consideration of the report, but this is an urgent matter: further delay will almost certainly result in the needless loss of innocent lives, including many children. Mr. President, the time has come for action,” the mayors wrote, according to the letter obtained by The Huffington Post.

The White House did not immediately have a comment in regards to the letter.

Bloomberg has been an ardent fighter for gun control, blaming illegal handguns smuggled into New York State for shootings that take place in the city. He has also taken on the National Rifle Association in the past.

“Over the past six months, approximately 6,000 Americans have been gunned down in intentional acts of violence. The 40 recommendations in our Blueprint, many of which could be enacted immediately, offer the best hope we have for making our country safer over the next six months — and the years ahead.”

The Huffington Post report comes after the city conducted a sting operation last year where it caught unlicensed gun dealers selling weapons to undercover investigators who admitted they couldn’t pass background checks.

The stings were conducted at seven gun shows in Tennessee, Ohio and Nevada. Those states are among the many that permit private unlicensed dealers, known as “occasional sellers,” to sell weapons at gun shows without conducting background checks.

Nine states, including New York, have passed laws to close the loophole, requiring background checks on at least all handgun purchases at gun shows.

Sticks and Stones

There was a shooting in the news today that is in the news everywhere, and a lot of people perished. And there was a shooting in the news yesterday and a someone lost their life. And there are shootings in the newspapers everyday, everywhere by everyone. And we cease the lives of others and kill human beings on a daily basis. It is despair raging and it is a story that is told and will be told on a daily basis with no end in sight. Is there anywhere safe to live in the world anymore where one can not be shot? When a person has a gun, they use it to kill someone and more guns is not the answer. Whatever happened to the 6th Commandment? “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13). The slaughter of war thoroughly debases the value of human life. Human life is a sacred gift from God. Whoever invented guns and gunpowder? Guns are the worst invention ever. And who invented the Second Amendment to the Constitution, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” That was the worst invention ever. What does The National Coalition to ban handguns and the National Rifle Association have to say about this? What do the gun lobbyists have to say about this? Can gun laws be changed? Is it possible that the world can go back in time to prehistoric ages before guns were invented and only sticks and stones existed? Is it possible to ban guns from every human being in civilization as a whole, for everyone to just throw their guns away so that we can all be equal? And is it possible for industries, stores and shops to stop selling guns, and media, advertisers, television, films, movies, commercials, photos, print and all forms of entertainment to stop promoting guns and images of guns , portraying images as if a person is cool because they are holding a gun in their hand? Is this not glorifying violence? Is there not moral values in society anymore? Does not media influence culture and society? Is it possible for editors to not devote the majority of their daily and evening news programs to crime and violence as if they are programing people and promoting more crime? And the firepower of video games are programming people to become killers. Is it possible to reverse this cycle, to reverse the collapse of morality in the world? Is the world too far gone? Is another world possible? On April 30th 2007, the Blogosphere will hold a One-Day Blog Silence in honor towards the victims of Virginia. 33 died at the US college massacre. Everyone with a blog can join this special event.
