Gun Control In America : The Solutions


Democracy doesn't uphold guns in every school of the United States of America as proposed by the Vice President of the National Rifle Association of America, Mr. Wayne LaPierre. There are also troubled people in safety personnel, and the same guns th

Frankfurt (I-Newswire) December 31, 2012 - "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."

But let's have in mind that the U.S. Constitution was written in the 18th century, more precisely in 1787 and that the U.S. Constitution was dealing with the challenges of the times, with the challenges of the 18th century.

America between 1787 and 1790 was a burgeoning America in a new world filled with wars coming from the ancient world: England, France, Spain..., and with wars with the original Indian natives of North America, (...).

America in 1790 was made of thirteen states: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia. And the rest was the Wild Wide West or New Spain.

In those troubled times of the 18th century in an America full of hazards and uncertainties emerged the Militia as often in troubled times. At the times, there was no FBI, no CIA, there were no police stations right at the corner of the street, so it made sense in the 18th century in America, that people, to defend themselves, were granted the "right to keep and bear Arms".

But this is the 21st century now, in 2012, there is the Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Secret Service..., there is no justification today, in the 21st century in America, for every people to "keep and bear arms".

The U.S. Constitution must be updated to the needs of the times, to the needs of the 21st century, like so many various democracies around the world have done with their own Constitutions, like the French with their Constitution of the 5th Republic of 1958.

And the update of the U.S. Constitution means courage from our representatives in Congress, to repeal once and for all the 2nd Amendment that doesn't make sense anymore.

But of course, and nevertheless, there will be in some cases, for professional reasons, or recreational ones like hunting, for instance, the possibility for some people to own firearms.

But what is not acceptable is the circulation in today's America of more than 300 000 000 firearms in the hands of anyone, this has nothing to do with democracy and "the security of a free State", this has only to do with the Wild Wide West and with the laws of the jungle.

After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, it is time to stand as one and to shout out loud: "no more killings, no more tears, enough is enough", and to push our representatives in Congress to take the necessary actions and steps to turn this long postponed fundamental right to safety into reality.

Democracy doesn't uphold guns in every school of the United States of America as proposed by the Vice President of the National Rifle Association of America, Mr. Wayne LaPierre. There are also troubled people in safety personnel, and the same guns that were supposed to protect children in schools could end up triggering another tragedy.

Democracy demands the repeal of the second Amendment.

Democracy demands the repeal of all laws upholding the free circulation of more than 300 000 000 firearms in America in the hands of anyone, those firearms that are running counter to democracy and fundamental rights of mankind to live in peace.
