Immigration- Teddy said it best
I am not against foreigners entering this country, as long as they do it legally! People in Mexico can immigrate to the USA, but most do not want to put up the money or time to do so. The bleeding heart without a clue Liberals would have you believe that they are entitled to a better way of life and therefore the borders should be open. There are so many things wrong with that line of thinking that they cannot all be possibly addressed here. They can't afford, financially, to go through the legal process? Well then I say that is there lot in life. If you can't afford it, you can't afford it, simple as that. I would love to live in a bigger house, drive newer vehicles, travel more, and do more for my family, but you know what? I can't afford it! Does that mean I should be able to do these things anyway? No. For now, until I can afford it, that is my lot in life. Theodore Roosevelt said it the best-
“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
No such thing as Gun Free Zones
The latest mass shooting, this one in Oregon, is yet another example of why gun free zones are ridiculous and absolutely do not work. We all remember the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, where a young man opened fire on innocent people at a movie theater who showed up for the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises", another installment in the Batman series. What most people do not know, and what will NEVER be reported by the liberal media, is that there were SEVEN theaters showing the movie that night, and at least two of them were extremely close, location wise, to the residence of the shooter. However, he went out of his way to go to a theater that had a posted no guns allowed, i.e., a "gun free zone." The other theaters had no such policy and carrying firearms into these theaters in a legal fashion was allowed. He obviously felt that by going to one of the theaters close to his home would have presented opposition to his heinous act, so he went to a theater where he would be THE ONLY ONE WITH A GUN!! Why is it 'the islamic socialist who is trying to destroy the country" and the rest of his ilk do not understand that guns save lives?
Perhaps, if this college in Oregon allowed legal campus carry, then maybe someone in the same room as the shooter, or maybe nearby, that had a legally owned firearm, could have possibly prevented the amount of bloodshed. I'm not saying if a law abiding citizen with a firearm had intervened that no one would have been killed, but I do believe the carnage would have been much less. And who knows?- maybe if this campus had allowed legal carry, then this shooter may have thought twice about shooting people who actually might shoot back.
