“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves as servants to obey;
whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16
By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman
Every decent gun training course will tell you that guns and drugs or guns and alcohol do not go together. The instructor is stating this for practical and tactical reasons, such as “sight alignment and sight picture.” If you are under the influence, you can and will miss your target, or shoot an innocent person, or shoot someone that you wouldn’t have when you were sober. Being under the influence lowers your inhibitions, numbs your conscious and dissolves your self-restraint.
Guns and drugs do not go together politically. Many violent crimes occur at the confluence of drugs and violence, for example, someone high on crack, committing a drive-by shooting, or someone high on Ritalin shooting school children.
Mass murders never trigger calls to sober up, they triggers calls for gun control. A million misguided mothers will work to disarm society, and are more willing to blame the inanimate firearm than the person who commits a crime. They are willing to “restrain” the innocent, because they lack the will to punish the guilty.
The Constitution Party of Wisconsin believes self-government is the answer. We recommend the virtues of temperance, and sobriety. As for this State Chairman, I have been sober for 30 years, as in not one drop of booze. There is more to being a “man of the people,” than being the people’s “drinking buddy.”
If you want to keep your freedom, then it is time to put that bottle down, and take up the fight for freedom. To exercise your Rights, one must be in their “right mind,” and “tavern-style politics,” will not get the job done. Drugs and an alcohol are addicting, so saying you are “free to be hooked,” isn’t freedom, because you are a beholding to some dope dealer, drug pusher, or liquor store.
America doesn’t have a gun problem. America has a drug problem and an unruly conduct problem. I am a free man. The party boys keep their cheap wares, and I will keep my hard earned money in my pocket. I will keep my mind alert and my eyesight in focus. I have no intentions of being disarmed. I consider the drug addict, the drug dealer and their evil deeds to be the enemies of my freedom and yours.
