Following the meeting at the White House yesterday, the NRA posted a statement on their website in response. It seems that VP Joe Biden and his panel have already decided what they are going to do in response to the school shootings. It is my opinion, in line with the NRA, that Biden’s panel is not interested in protecting our children. He is interested in gaining political capital for himself and his cronies.
If pro-gun control people will not plan for self-defense in their own home, why would anyone think they would do more for our kids at school than they are willing to do for their own families? Ignore the 300 Million guns already on the streets, don’t give our kids any enhanced security at school, just keep anymore guns from being sold, then hope really hard nothing else happens. (Well, at least keep one type of gun from being sold, out of the thousands of guns manufactured.)
We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners – honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. ~NRA
I am a student of Dr. Demming’s teachings, he a process improvement expert. He states, when trying to find the root cause of a problem, look at ALL of the data, get ALL the information. Then, find the points that seem to be common to every instance of the problem, and you will be able to make large improvements with less change. The main thing you should NEVER do is decide on the solution to the problem before you have all the information. LET THE DATA LEAD YOU THERE. Jumping to conclusions may or may not have an impact, but since real data analysis was not utilized, there is the likelihood that the wrong solution will be implemented and eventually we will have to do all this again. That means money spent incorrectly, time wasted, and if there is one thing this country can’t afford to do it is waste money. It is simply bad business.
Any legislation that comes from this panel will just be like warm milk and a soft blanket, slowly rocking American to sleep. WAKE UP!
Sadly, if the NRA statement is reality, this is proof that a large number of people are in denial, but also of evolution. We’ve been protecting the cosmically stupid for so long, now there’s as many of them as us.
