Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) gave a lesson to those who support the right to keep and bear arms. Generally speaking there are those who own guns for hunting and to provide food for their families. There are also people with gun fetishes that tend to enjoy the look of guns, but they do not see the consequences.
Lt. Colonel in the @USAirforce & currently serving in the Air National Guard, Adam Kinzinger spoke to the “founding fathers intended” us to “be adults:”
‘On second amendment: i have lived a situation which made me deeply believe in conceal carry. But using guns as a fetish to “own the libs” isn’t what our founding fathers intended. Side note: as second amendment defenders, it’s on is to be adults.’
He retweeted a Christmas message from a family whose members were all about a “gun fetish.” And this picture explained what that meant better than long written arguments. Perhaps, these people would rethink their Christmas message if they had a photo of what guns do:
‘I’m pro second amendment, but this isn’t supporting right to keep and bear arms, this is a gun fetish.’
How would Americans have reacted if photos of what guns did to a first grader who died at Sandy Hook. The media skitters away from photos of the babies who died. Then, those who wanted to enjoy their gun fetish might reconsider their Christmas message:
‘We don’t need to modify the 2nd Amendment; we need to stop the myths about it peddled by the NRA and their ilk. They lie about history. The antidote is a heavy dose of truth.’
This shows the difference between when the Second Amendment was originally enacted and how:
It is interesting that the Second Amendment overlapped another issue in the news abortion rights. The New York Times tweeted:
Another tweet about a family with a gun fetish needs no further words.
