A few weeks ago - on Saturday, December 1, 2012 -
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his
girlfriend. He also killed himself with a .40 caliber handgun. A
few days ago the medical examiner issued the autopsy results.
According to the Jackson County (MO) medical examiner, there were
absolutely "no" illegal drugs in Mr. Belcher's body. However, the
autopsy report listed a blood-alcohol content of over twice the
legal limit. The newspaper headline read "Autopsy: Belcher Was
How many of these incidents have to happen before we finally do
something about alcohol - especially as it pertains to young
people? About 2000 teenagers die every year in alcohol-related car
crashes. Most available information tells us that over 200
children, ages 14 and younger, are killed every year in car wrecks
involving alcohol. Thirty-five children a year die as pedestrians
or bikers when hit by drunk drivers.
Enough is enough! This is not a political issue. This is not a
partisan issue. We're talking safety. The government should do
something. Joe Biden should hold a hearing, form a commission.
President Obama should hold a press conference and, for effect,
shed a couple of tears.
Everyone knows what an amazing job Michael Bloomberg is doing in
New York, protecting those citizens from soft drinks. How about
having a law nationwide that prohibits anyone from purchasing more
than 16 ounces of beer? How about the six-pack? No one really
needs a six-pack. Can't that be changed? People can walk into a
store and buy a case of beer. That's 24 beers. No one really needs
24 beers to get loaded - that's insane! People are dying! The
government should do something, right?!
But for now, the focus is on guns. Following are two quotes about
what the government should do about guns:
"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a
civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be
safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our
lead into the future."
Adolph Hitler, 1935
"Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn
them over to the local police authority. Firearms and ammunitions
found will be forfeited to the government without compensation.
Whoever violates the provisions will be punished with imprisonment
and a fine."
Nazi Law, 1938
Evidently, the United States is about 75 years behind the times,
but we're getting there. Is everybody happy now? Is everybody
relieved? Does everybody believe now that our children will be
Forget liberty, forget freedom! Who cares? We need gun control!
Until next time,
God bless everybody and God bless America!
