What will it take to put an end to this madness? There have been 18 gun-related incidents this year in schools across our nation and sadly, it’s just February.
Is the 2nd amendment more important than the lives of our children? Seems that way. What is it going to take for politicians to knock off the Dem-Rep horse shit and do something? I’m not suggesting the confiscation of guns throughout this country. I’m all for people having guns to protect themselves, their families and their property. What I am NOT ok with just anyone being able to purchase a gun. And, I’m NOT ok with assault rifles! Even a deer hunter doesn’t need an assault rifle!
Too many people don’t know how to settle disputes without violence. Many have mental health issues. Some people don’t know how to handle rejection. Some people feel alone and desperate for attention. Some have issues with adults and/or authority figures in general. The list could go on and on… Too many people out there, for one reason or another, are not responsible enough to own a gun.
I don’t know the answer…..but I know that enough is enough! Our children are dying. Our teachers, administrators, and coaches are dying as they protect our children. If I still had school-aged children, they would be homeschooled! You can bank on that.
In the latest school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida…. 17 dead, 15 injured. The gunman apparently had been expelled more than once from that school, for possession of firearms!!! He commented on YouTube that he wanted to be “a profession school shooter!” Who the F*CK does that? And why the F*CK wasn’t he on someone’s radar?
My heart breaks for the parents who lost a child yesterday. I can’t believe this keeps happening, over and over again, while our nation’s leaders say, “This is not the time to talk about gun control” or “Thoughts and prayers.” Give me a break!
