Should FOID gun licenses be issued to marijuana or other illegal drug users?

A song titled: Love and Marriage go together like a horse and carriage can be considered a metaphor as defined by Merriam Webster

Definition of metaphor

1: a figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them (as in drowning in money)

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient wisdom verses to discern the present folly of legislators to focus on guns only and not drugs to reduce school shootings and carnage inflicted in Parkland Florida, Highland Park, Illinois, and possibly Uvalde, Texas.

King Solomon – Ecclesiastes 10:15-17

+The toil of a fool wearies him, for he does not know the way to the city. 16Woe to you, O land whose king is a youth, and whose princes feast in the morning. 17Blessed are you, O land whose king is a son of nobles, and whose princes feast at the proper time—for strength and not for drunkenness. (Or drugs in our contemporary times))

What’s My Point?

Should a similar use of the word methaphor be applied to “guns and drugs go together like school shooters and folly”

And should the legislators who passed legalized marijuana laws in their States be described as fools to focus on guns only and not drugs when two of three of the recent school shooters admitted to being high on marijuana when they laid carnage to innocent victims.?

And perhaps even the third Uvalde shooter whose autopsy has never been made public after he shot his grandmother, then crashes his car enroute to the school?

And all three shooters’ mothers had drug problems?  

In My Opinion

King Solomon above wisdom verse opinion about woe to any nation appears to be the truth of what is occurring in the USA that we read daily in the news/

Add that a DuPage Illinois Sheriff stated 80 percent of the prisoners have drug and mental issues.

Add that the majority of crimes are being committed by drug users according to the FBI Crime reports to feed their drug addictions or to profit from sales of illegal drugs.

You Decide

Is Senator Chuck Schumer efforts to pass a Bill to legalize and mandate recreational marijuana be legalized in all States wise or foolish even though the CDC warns of health hazards, mental illness and marijuana could be a bridge to use of more potent illegal drugs.

Should the USA recognize that the 50-year war on drugs is a failure and change the present path of folly on both guns and drugs in the USA to not allow any FOID gun licenses be issued to anyone who uses marijuana or illegal drugs?

Will voters in the next election be wise in their selections of legislators to recognize that guns and drugs are a deadly methaphor combination.

Regard and goodwill blogging.
