The 2nd Amendment in the US Constitution (the one about gun ownership) was not set up for the modern arsenal we have today. More, powerful guns are a problem not answer. Too many people are dying because weapons of mass destruction are becoming easier to get it seems. Why make something that is guaranteed to kill on a large scale?
This political cartoon courtesy of The Chattanooga Times Free Press is from a few years ago when a mass shooting happened at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. There is so much truth in this for many in America. I hate guns, I really do.
It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.
Enough blood has been shed in this country and we have to do something. I agree it’s a moral issue that has lives in the balance. No constitutional amendment is more important than a life.
I’m watching news of the San Bernadino mass shootings today on CNN and it has me feeling very sad and a little scared for the people there. A facility that helps people with mental challenges was attacked for a reason we don’t know yet. This is yet another mass shooting in our country. It is saddening that we have such a problem with guns and violence that seems to be the norm these days.
My friends the killings have to stop. I am not a fan of guns and I think some people own them to give them a sense of power and because of paranoia. Others have guns for sport and protection either reason leaves us living in a wild west situation. There is no excuse for the shootings today or any day. Can we give peace a real chance in our country? I sure hope so.
The terror within should concern us more than the terror in distant places. Be safe today good people.

This graph is astonishing and sad at the same time. Something needs to be done about gun violence in our country. The terror at home is a serious problem. I get that citizens have the right to bear arms but I am not sure the founding fathers could have envisioned people with their own private arsenal. We live in such a wild west place now that it is truly scary.
