Washington Times: Gun Free Zones Are Only For ‘The Little People’

Guns-Make-us-Less-SafeAmmoLand – by Awr Hawkins

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- A Jan. 30 column in The Washington Times sent a clear message to those who’ve somehow failed to put two-and-two together in the current gun control debate–gun grabbing politicians want to take our guns away, but leave their guns in place.

In other words, the places in which they live and breath and conduct their business will remain under heavy guard–from police, armed agents, helicopter flyovers, and snipers at various points–while “the little people,” i.e., average American citizens, are expected to get along as best they can without any means to defend life or liberty.

Ironically, this Times column appeared on the very day Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), were presiding over a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing where the topics of discussion were a new “assault weapons” ban, a 30 round magazine ban, and the implementation of universal background checks. None of which will apply to the guns or guards that surround the Senators, of course.

As The Washington Times put it:

It is important to remember that while they are talking about disarming you and me, they are not talking about disarming themselves. They will still be coddled in their fortresses. The closer you get to the Capitol the more armed guards there are. Up close, there are bomb proof guard shacks, literally, on every street corner. Squads of machine gun-carrying guards dot the magnificent marble buildingscape at all times.

Leaders in Congress ride around with escorts of huge armed men. Is that because what they do every day is more dangerous than what you and I do every day?…. WTF?

The answer to this question is that it doesn’t matter whose job is more dangerous, because they are the ‘big people’ and we are “the little people.” And this means they get guns and we get a pat on the back every election year.

In 2014, we must vote the gun grabbers out of office.

  1. Washington Times?? Really?? Who woulda thunk it?
    And it ain’t just guns, either. First guns, then kitchen utensils, then sports equipment, then cars, pets, and houses…

    In other words, it’s not about guns. It’s about PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNERSHIP! Period! End of Story!

  2. The founders warned us about being vigilant.

    Watching teevee for 150 hours per month (Nielson report) and spending zero hours per month holding elected official accountable has brought us to the brink of tyranny. http://articles.cnn.com/2009-02-24/entertainment/us.video.nielsen_1_nielsen-company-nielsen-spokesman-gary-holmes-watching?_s=PM:SHOWBIZ

    But look on the bright side, they may take away our guns, our right to own property, ration how much and what we eat, force us into a health care system with mandatory poisonous vaccinations and death panels rationing care when we get old, but they will never take away our blessed, life-sustaining teevee’s.
