Mat Damon, has a dream. A dream he wishes could happen in his country. Unlike Martin Luther King Jr. however, who envisioned things like love, and peace… Damon’s vision is far from it. You maybe very surprised to learn what it is, in fact…think bleak, and bloody authoritarian takeover of the entire U.S. population through very drastic measures.
Matt Damon spent the Fourth of July weekend in Australia, where he spoke to media outlets about his newest film Jason Bourne. However, his comments didn’t stop at simple remarks about his movie. He decided to opine on an issue that still has Austrailian gun owners upset. Damon suggested that in his perfect dream world, the United States would seize and confiscate guns on the level Austrailia did in 1996. He also claimed that Americans can be “emotional” when it comes to gun control.
“You guys did it here in one fell swoop, and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly,” Damon said during a promotional engagement in Sydney.
Damon added that American gun owners won’t even have a conversation about not selling an “AK-47 to a person on the terrorist watchlist.” However, what Damon fails to understand is that such a move removes an American’s right to due process.
It isn’t that hard to comprehend why a gun owner would not want the government in charge of a list that they can add anyone to at any time for any reason without even charging them with a crime. It’s pretty cut and dry — if the government seeks to take gun rights from an American, that person should be charged with a crime first.
“Obviously, mass shootings aren’t going to do it. There have been so many of them at this point,” he said. “Sandy Hook — when those children were murdered — if that didn’t do it, you know, I just don’t know. Maybe we just need to evolve further before we can have that conversation. I don’t know.”
No law or rules will stop crazy people from being crazy or evil people from being evil. The only way to keep fatalities down, is to be prepared at all times…by ready I mean STRAPPED WITH YOUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!
