The Smoking Gun

21 Jun

If today in the 21st century one man with a gun can commit mass murder… then why isn’t a gun considered a weapon of mass destruction?

To say that an archaic amendment to a living constitution, made during a time when the personal weapons of men could not help one commit mass murder, is an incontrovertible right that can never be modified, is equivalent to espousing the notion that the confederate flag, born in a refutation of human value, is now a symbol of honor and freedom among men.

When will America stop embracing dumb-assery… and start embracing humanity within our own borders?

    Your succinct assessment of this problem moved me.
    I always wonder how it could be so easy to box one’s thoughts in such a narrow canyon and be blind to such problems.

    From outside looking in I am amazed at your countries acceptance of guns. I suppose you’re up against big business, and tradition in certain areas.

    Not any time soon I’m thinking.

    I do not myself use or own guns, however, as ignorant it may seem, I don’t have the heart to take them from my brother who wishes to protect himself with one (my actual brother). Your post has a load of logic I respect.

    I hope some day soon, human lives will mean much more than those green notes.
