Yesterday's news reported that a three year old girl in Tennessee accidentally shot and killed herself after mistaking a loaded .380 caliber Smith and Wesson handgun for a Wii Remote.
Supposedly the child's stepfather 'accidentally' left the weapon out on a table right next to the video game system. As a responsible parent, I don't believe this for a minute. No one would be so careless as to put their child in that kind of danger. I believe that this was no accident. It is a scheme deliberately set up by people who want more draconian gun control laws.
Perhaps the most well known gun control advocate is Rosie O'Donnell, who claims that the Second Amendment is 'not really a right'. So there you have it: a three year old child is dead because of Rosie O'Donnell.
I am not a gun owner, but at some point I would like to learn to shoot and perhaps own a weapon of my own someday. Gun control laws are a dangerous step on the path to totalitarian government. People who advocate abridging our right to bear arms don't realize that it is the government itself from which the second amendment is intended to protect us.
