Another Immigrant-Citizen Supports Firearms Ownership

Hat tip to The Blaze.

No time to post tonight. High school wrestling meet went late. The good news is that my son pinned his opponent, who was quite strong and a very good wrestler.

We have another account of a person who came to the US from a nation in which the people are not allowed to own firearms. His testimony is brutally honest.

Of note should be his reference to what the Left has intensively cultivated with a passion but tries to keep out of public debate - "societal decay".
I wish that more Americans would be willing to bring this fact into the arena.

“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my opinion and give my testimony in opposition to the majority of the proposed bills, which do nothing to deter future crimes,” he added. “Gun control doesn’t work.”

Ong then launched into a impassioned diatribe about what he considers to be the real problem fueling gun gun violence — “societal decay.”

“Your own history is replete with high school rifle teams, boy scout marksmanship merit badges,” he explained. “You could buy rifles at hardware stores, you could order them… your country was awash in readily available firearms and ammunition, and yet in your past you did not have mass school shootings*.”

“What changed?” he asked. “It was not that the availability of guns suddenly exploded or increased, it actually was decreased. What changed was societal decay,” he added, resulting in more applause.".............
