The United States of America is a nation that proportionally has a great many unmatched achievements it can be proud of.
The Internet, circa 1985; cell phones, 1973; machine guns, 1862, 1884; Panama Canal, 1914; modern submarine, 1900; trans-oceanic cable communication, 1858; first nuclear reactor, 1942; Model T Ford, 1908; first in flight, 1903, and men on the moon, 1969, are some of the plethora of such achievements.
But one thing is certain, the experiment in relation to the right of citizens of the U.S.A. to bear arms, as the Second Amendment of the constitution provides, has proved to be a complete failure. So much so that it has become an unprecedented monstrous, uncontrolled, corrosive and societal problem, as high gun circulation in the U.S., with rapidity, continues undeniably to be an existential threat to the nation as a whole.
Fatal shots pumped into the bodies of least 12 bar patrons and a sheriff’s deputy; many others injured, some of them catastrophically so, in a mass shooting at a country and western dance hall in Thousand Oaks, California, in the late evening of November 7, 2018, less than five days after 11 other people were killed in a fusillade at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, in the state of Pennsylvania, the latest mass shooting, as were the untold number of the same barrages of bullets before, a continuing affirmation that the experiment, one of the right to keep and bear arms is the people’s right to possess weapons for the defense of democracy against dictatorship, has miserably failed – a monumental failure.
