Guns Protect Who from What?
Any News is Bad News
No News is Good News
If you’re interested in statistics and facts you won’t find them here. I don’t need to “Google” statistics to see that America has serious problems. It’s pretty sad that I am afraid to open the newspaper in the morning or turn on the news in the evening because I usually end up finding myself angry or needing a tissue. Sure, the news isn’t going to always be pretty, but whatever happened to a “bad day”, “bad event”, “bad incident”? They are all day everyday occurrences now. It doesn’t matter what state you live in each local paper and local news team is ready to let us know about what tragedies we might have otherwise missed.
Too many choices....
To Be Or Not To Be...Armed?
My frustration comes out of the “gun-control” argument. You have the potentially “ignorant” side of people that are sick of watching innocent people killed. Then you have the die-hard Americans with guns and rights that don’t want to give up either. So where does that leave someone like me in the middle; die-hard American who doesn’t want to lose any rights but doesn’t want to see another child take a bullet to the head? Guns or no guns? Guns or less guns? Guns with more requirements? What difference does it make. It’s not a matter of what we’re carrying or not carrying around it is the people that are walking the streets; Americans!
Where's the Bad Guy?
Can we not recognize that America and the people who reside here are in serious trouble or is it just easier to be in denial? Why does a law-abiding citizen want a gun; to feel safe, safe from “bad guys”. Who are the “bad guys”; our American neighbor? Why do “bad guys” have guns; because they get them from the hands of the God-fearing, law-abiding citizens that need them for protection from the “bad guys”. Gee, are we seeing a vicious cycle here? Why don’t we work on the violence that we have embedded into society, try to save humanity and the nation and remove the agonizing feelings of fear that we’re forced to live with. If we didn’t have to live in fear we wouldn’t need such dangerous protection. Instead of arming every American, why don’t we find a way to eliminate the need to fear our neighbors?
The below clip made me laugh until I cried, or maybe I just cried because it is absolutely scary to see what a gun can do in the hands of someone who is not trained to use one.
Bang Bang! You're Dead!
Guns for protection?
Are guns doing more harm or good?
