I was listening to the radio and the subject was gun control. Since I’d just written about gun control, I decided to listen to what others had to say about the subject.
The first woman who called the station complained about people who liked owning guns. She didn’t understand why anyone needs to own a gun. She said people who owned guns made her angry, because we have the police ready to protect us from gun crazies.
I swear, that first caller was me in another time. I understood how she felt, but since then, my belief on gun control changed. I so wanted to get on the phone and call the radio station and explain to the woman why we all have a right to own guns. But it was a recorded show, so I could not respond to what she said.
Then immigrant after immigrant called the station. All the immigrants were against gun control. They all said that they left their country because of government torture or harassment. One caller, a Chinese man, had taken part in the Tiananmen Square Protest in 1989, and he’d wished he had a gun. None of the protesters had guns, the police all had guns. He said he totally believed in a citizen’s right to own a gun. He’d become a citizen, and he stated that Americans should keep their guns and not to ever give them up. That guns would prevent the U.S. from becoming a dictatorship.
There’s also something they all said that I wish other Americans had heard. They all said that they see signs of what was happening in their country happening here. They see signs of people losing their rights in the future.
Well, they sure don’t have to warn me about signs. I’m living proof of what the immigrants were talking about. I’ve lost my freedom along with million of other Americans. We targets all know what the signs are. We’re all experiencing what the immigrants were talking about. We’ve already lost our freedom.
I wish Americans would open their eyes and see what’s happening. The immigrants see the signs, why can’t they?
