It’s been understood throughout the course of this country’s history that we as individuals have the right to defend ourselves from violence. This is perhaps best captured in the line in the Constitution that we have the “right to keep and bear arms.” As I reflect on the horrors of recent mass shootings, it becomes clear that the only way we can progress as a society is to reject this concept. If we are to maintain any semblance of civility, we need to do away with arms.
To be clear, I’m not talking about guns and weapons, I’m talking about arms as in the things coming out of your torso and connected your hands. Basically, what I’m proposing is a mass amputation of the arms of all 300 million Americans. I feel this will prevent future mass shootings of all types. Let’s say you don’t have any arms and you want to go shoot up a school. You walk up to the door, but you can’t pull open the door because you don’t have any arms to operate the doorknob. Even if, by some miracle, you managed to get into the building, how are you gonna operate your weaponry? With your teeth? I don’t think so, sicko!
I feel this program will lead to a much safer, happier America.
