Quite frankly I was fed up years ago and the last straw was just as long ago. When will it change and when will something be done with the brutal slayings of yet more innocent people- this time children!
Gun holding Americans on one side and the others who want gun control on the other side and politicians are avoiding this one like always because of its so called controversy. It seems just as hot as the topic of abortion. Politicians are doing a good job for the most part of taking around it, but no one has a resolution. Let’s start with the news media. Over and over we hear all about the killer’s back round, their upbringing, their families, and the victims are forgotten because it doesn’t sell. So why are we watching and not doing anything about it?
Then they media will have every psychiatrist, sociologist, doctor or anyone with letters in front of their name to discuss how this could have happened. It’s happened! It’s too late to discuss how this happened. Why did we allow it? Have we done anything substantionl since the Virginia Tech massacre or Columbine? No!
I understand that the back round checks on the folks who commit these crimes are not good enough. Don’t tell me it’s because they don’t have the resources to provide such services or please don’t tell me insurance companies are involved in this too.
Why does anyone need rifle? And who are the gun sellers that sell this type of person a weapon? How well are the gun sellers checked?
It’s a mess. Our country has gone beyond a slump, we are in trouble.
Now I hate to sound like I writing a knee jerk reaction to the events in Connecticut.
I have sat and prayed and thought and prayed and thought. What to do about this. Will be become as a society numb to our children being killed as we are when we watch the news and see other folks who are victims of crime or was being killed.
I don’t know if gun control is the answer or not. I’d like to think it is. However we know the underbelly will get guns regardless.
So I’ll end with a plea to our Government leaders-Help!
Bless those children and their families.
As a nation we really failed this time!
