Time for gun control advocates to put their money where their mouths are

Alan P. Halbert
Mayor Bloomberg's latest statement over the Colorado movie theater shooting:

"No matter where you stand on the Second Amendment, no matter where you stand on guns, we have a right to hear from both of them, concretely, not just in generalities, specifically, 'What are they going to do about guns?'"

If these so-called experts believe in what they say, let them put signs on their front lawns, front doors, windows and other areas of their home "Gun Free Zone" let them make themselves targets and stop putting society at risk with their foolishness. 

An armed society is a polite society. 

While these very same advocates would balk at my suggestion as they know it would make them a target for "crime."  Lets talk about real solutions and not disarming or taking rights away from law abiding citizens and ceding our safety over to a criminal element that would abuse us. 

Let us stop making courts and prisons revolving doors for violent offenders and the constant excuse express for their rotten childhood or lack of opportunity and mete out justice to offenders that actually would cause them to think twice before committing another crime.  Encourage people to be proficient in the use of arms and encourage citizens to arm themselves.

Government should stop all this running from crime and tragedy by passing laws that force citizens to cower in the corner while their lives are threatened by people that have no conscious concept of anything other than taking from others their property or their lives as a way of life. 

It is time for armed citizens to make a difference and be heard!
