There Will Be No “Meaningful Dialogue.”
Why are we even playing this game anymore?
There’s not going to be any “meaningful dialogue” in this country around gun control because one side, not ours, isn’t going to be honest about its intentions. The reality is that the vast majority of that side, not ours, doesn’t even really know what they’re asking for. It’s just a bunch of emotion without much rational thought behind it. The politicians, like Obama – who I am assuming is at least of average intelligence, will exploit the pain and anger for their agenda. And those of you who think Obama’s agenda has anything to do with saving children have yet to figure out who this guy is.
We’re not going to have a “meaningful dialogue” on gun control because that would entail acknowledging one thing that one side, not ours, will never ever admit to: Laws (and government) don’t have, and never will have, all the answers. This is the major barrier to having any real “meaningful dialogue” about guns in this country and because it would require the Left to give up its core principle, its fundamental premise, the dialogue is already over.
We’re just going through the motions.
A meaningful dialogue would be one where statistics are honestly offered to bolster one side or the other. Not going to happen.
A meaningful dialogue would be one where we get some admission that maybe, just maybe, the culture of abortion on demand, where the most innocent life imaginable can be snuffed out by a teenaged girl without any input from her parents, could be why life seems to be of little value to some people. It’s pretty tough to teach an entire population that life is precious when a sizable portion of that population is cool with killing a Down’s child before he/she ever sees the light of day.
A meaningful dialogue would include the millions and millions and millions of law abiding citizens who have owned firearms and never caused even a minor injury to anyone, let alone killed anyone.
A meaningful dialogue would demand from those looking to “do something” about gun violence a detailed plan to confiscate the guns already out there.
None of that will be discussed. What we’ll get, and what Obama knows we’ll get, is one side – not ours – exploiting the horrific deaths of over two dozen people in Connecticut to argue for something that they will never specify and cause further division in this country. Obama, being of at least average intelligence, doesn’t expect to get more gun control. All he wants is to have yet another issue with which to demonize conservatives. Anyone who thinks he really cares, hasn’t been paying attention.
We could have a “meaningful dialogue” in this country, but that really isn’t the Left’s goal.
