You may have heard it before, ‘If we give up our guns, then only the criminals will have guns’…
Drug dealers, con-men, gang members, carjackers, pick-pockets, and more… they are not walking into churches, schools and movie theaters and killing people. The people doing these mass shootings are just regular, but extremely troubled, young men. They have access to guns and information, via technology, to destroy lives and communities. They are not the ‘criminals’ we think we need to worry about. Getting rid of guns may mean that only criminals will have guns ~ that will make it easy to recognize who needs to be arrested… if you have a gun, you are a criminal and your gun will be confiscated.
Let’s stop saying how guns are a right, that we deserve to be hunters and people who use guns as a sport. Let’s stop having children who grow up around guns, have a healthy respect for guns, and would never do this kind of thing. Let’s stop being a country of selfish, fearful, conspiracy theorists who need protection from our government and neighbors and start being a country who values the lives of innocent children over our right to go out and kill a deer.
Parents who have their guns used in an act of violence or in an accident should be held accountable for the crimes their children commit. Let’s start saying that THAT is the price of freedom… But, my first choice is to ban guns, all guns.
I have never liked guns, but, yes, now I am an anti-gun nut… I am fine with that
The only hope that someone will not use a gun to commit mass murders is IF they can’t get their hands on a gun.
