Safety First

23 May

Almost every day, and today was no exception, I receive an Email in my inbox alerting me of sex offender activity in my neighborhood and this message…

“Learning the truth about who lives near your family can be shocking and disturbing. By proceeding you agree to utilize Kids Live Safe solely for informational purposes and to protect your children and loved ones.”

So I have thought to myself, wouldn’t it be nice if I could receive an alert every time one of my neighbors bought a handgun, rifle or weapon?

“Attention: Your neighbor bought a gun and or weapon so your children might be in danger because 70% of all gun deaths are the result of accidents, suicide or the miss handling of a gun. We are only telling you this so that your kids might live more safely.”

Okay, relax all of you gun owners out there whose heads just exploded! I know you are not criminals just because you own a gun and I agree that you should not be treated as criminals…But…I don’t have a gun so there is 0% chance that someone in my neighborhood will be killed by it….but since you do own a gun, you must admit (yes, you really must) that you and your family are more dangerous than me and mine… And yes, someone could break into my shed and steal my pitchfork and stab 3 little children at once but…

Here’s where I’m going with this.

According to Politico, numerous polls show that 90 percent of Americans have been supportive of background checks for all commercial sales, including gun shows, for some time and more people in the United States favor universal background checks on gun sales than approve of Mother Teresa…

And according to the  respected Pew Research Center there have only been a few areas in which 90 percent of Americans agreed, one of those being that the percentage of people who believe in God is consistently at 90 percent.


So…in the name of God and all that is holy, including the U.S. Constitution, can we ¬†PLEASE have universal background checks for ALL commercial gun sales? Please?
