I've been thinking about this for a while now, but recent happenings have made this thought more apparent. It all started with a bill that is still being thrown around in congress, the bill states that there will be detention centers built for alleged terrorist. This made me think of the McCarthy era in which suspected communist were thrown into these "detention" centers. These so called communist were thrown into the detention centers without any proof. All rights were taken away if you were announced a communist. The worst part about it was that sometimes, if a person did not like the other he could simply call them a communist and of they were. This brings me back to my original concern, how is any of this any different from what happened 60 years ago? If this bill passes we could be up for some serious shit. But before i end this, id like to ask a question that will hopefully ignite a discussion. The government could blame the shootings all they want, but we all know these kind of things have always been around. Taking guns out of stores so as not to be able to buy, tracking gun owners as if they were threats, this just leaves one question afloat; What's easier that conquering a nation that is disarmed? I will write about my thoughts about gun control on my next post, until then my people, and have a good day.
