The Paradox of “American Guns”

The Paradox of “American Guns”

In the past five decades, the world has witnessed the destructive force of American guns on the soil of foreign nations. The American military, post-JFK has had the ceremonial distinction of being a self-appointed bounty hunter. At first to protect the world against the encroachment of Communism, and then to undo the sinister deeds of dispensable dictators. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people, and the world, of the dangers of a misdirected “Military Industrial Complex”. That Complex is now under the control of the Elite. The very people sworn to protect the American people have been subdued by the American Congress and President.

How can the American political machine promulgate the confiscation of guns, when the fabric of America was built on the right to bear arms? I have always been a gun control advocate, but recent world events lead me to believe that the right to protect one-self is an inalienable right, and not the jurisdiction of politicians. The sad irony is that our financial and political elite hire armed security personnel to protect themselves, yet we are not afforded that same privilege. What is good for the goose, must be good for the gander.

Today, Vice-President Joe Biden announced:
Biden, according to the report, explained that "the president IS going to act." The White House has determined that "executive action can be taken," stated the Vice President. The specifics of that action have not yet been settled.

The American president “will not” take executive action to protect the American people from a financial Armageddon (i.e. one that could potentially alleviate more violence, brought about by poverty, hunger or just plain desperation) yet he is prepared to amend the constitution, to justify what many people know to be an “orchestrated violence”.
If this is the case, then the community of nations should take decisive steps to disarm the cunning political killers who now head the United States government.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
