Where is my Piece At!!
Since moving into DC last year, I have been wanting to "ARM" myself. I can only afford to live in mid-gentrified areas a.k.a (The hood in transition) and I live by myself.
To my dismay, I found out DC had a Ban on Guns!! So what was a chick to do??
Well, last week the Supreme Court revisited our 2nd Amendment, and ruled that DC's " 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment" .
Sometimes, you just want things because you cannot have them. Now I can really get a gun, but I have mix emotions about this ruling and its effects.
Really, what is the true reason folks have guns? I do not really want to kill anyone. I have been living thus far without the need for one. (Thank GOD) Self Defense is forever the reason why the 2nd amendment continues to exist. But in a way, isn't this the US failing us because our so called "Defense System" does not work? Thus we have to take it in our own hands? How much of our city, state, and federal taxes to funding Intelligence, Defense, and Police Agencies who carry a piece just like I now can? Yet we continue to pay taxes for their shortcomings. Isn't this noting a failure in our system? I mean should we not request some of our money back? Am I not doing the US a favor by carrying a piece? At least give me a write off, if I have a Gun.
Further, I am still waiting for is for folks to take Chris Rock seriously. We do not need Gun Control. We need Bullet Control. That is real, because if I had to take out a loan, and get my Credit check for each bullet I purchased, I would think twice if its a necessity or not. Why can't we tax Bullets??
Now, Now do not get in a tissy fit, I was simply looking at it from another POV. Can you imagine with the current state, we are in everyone running around with a loaded GUN?? Oh wait we do! DC is called the Murda Capital for a reason. We try to regulate it, you know the whole you have to register and not have a criminal background, but really, it has not proven successful. Who are the folks causing all this drama, but criminals that our police officers cannot get to? What impact will the 2nd Amendment is going to do for the US?
Well, lets look at Georgia! You can now tote your heat on the Bus and MARTA!
NOW what if Crazy Soulja Girl had a piece!?? Nope not a good Idea.
