Blood is on their hands

"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."
We've had guns since the beginning of this country. But it wasn't until the Republican party became a wholly owned subsidiary of the NRA (who used to represent gun owners but now serve only gun manufacturers) installed ideologically corrupt Supreme Court justices who can interpret the First Amendment to decree that money equals speech then delete the first four words of the 2nd Amendment, “a well regulated militia,” allowing every crazy to own military stye assault weapons, which should never have been in the hands of citizens unless they are well trained in service to the U.S. military (what the militia morphed into).
A court operating in good faith could just as easily interpret it to say every citizen should be able to own a handgun for home protection and a single shot rifle for hunting, no high capacity magazines. But that had to happen in the beginning of the availability of AK47s or AR15s, and linked to harsh penalties (jail sentences) for crimes using guns and not allowing guns to be carried in public, unless they are in the trunk, unloaded, for hunting.
We cannot get there from here with over 300 million guns in this country, the almighty dollar won out, and every drop of blood spilled by assault weapons is on the hands and souls of every person, legislator, Justice and voter who facilitated the lapse of the assault weapons ban. They better pray there is no such thing as karma, because Christ said “They who take the sword shall perish by the sword,” and “what ye sow, that also shall you reap.”
