Jesus H. Christ on a pogo-stick.

If things go from bad to worse, it's already hit rock bottom today.

This morning the news was smeared with broadcasts in regards to the elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT. I don't know if any of you keep up with this stuff, but this is the seventh shooting this year alone. I'm not sure if anyone lives in that area in our community here, but my prayers and candles are lit for the fallen this night and I will be staying up late to offer condolences to my friends near and far for what happened.

Even the president is broken up about it, his statement this afternoon had him on the brink of tears, of which he could be seen wiping them away as he continued his speech. I can only hope that he does the right thing and enables stricter laws for gun purchasing and ownership in this nation....Light Lord and Lady knows we need them..

i do not want to pick a fight.....


But lets face it making Meth illegal has made it SOOOOOOOO hard to get hasn't it?
Cocaine?
Heroin?

Makings it harder to get something legally does nothing to stop those that do not care about LAW'S.

A law abiding citizen isn't going to go out and kill someone. They'll follow the laws since they see no reason not to. A criminal doesn't care about the laws. While laws do work for a lot of things a gun isn't the only means to the end of killing someone. Honestly if someone wanted to kill someone they would use what they had available to them be it a gun or anything else. Hell even their own two hands. Cars can be used as a weapon. Stricter gun laws in the end only hurt the average citizen who has no reason to use them for anything other then self defense or a recreational use.

Now this isn't meant to start a debate(Which I honestly wouldn't want to happen anyhow.) I mere wish to point out the other side of the gun law issue. Criminals don't give a damn about laws and will always find a way to get what they want to use to injure or kill. Even with this said I still feel sad for those parents and loved ones of those who were killed, I also feel sad for those kids who now have to live knowing something terrible happened at their school. I can't imagine what the impact on their lives will be having had this happen.

I honestly can't imagine it either Locke.

Lyo, I doubt there is anything that can be done to stop the gun laws from being changed. I do know one thing though, high powered guns like the ones they were using for these shootings this past year need to be gone, completely. Those should only be military issue only, not in the hands of citizens. Anything else should be available, but not something that can be used to fire at groups of people. It's rediculous.

I found this article and it really warmed my heart to see folks actually taking part in this little idea. Maybe it's something we could learn from? [x]
