Something to think about this weekend...
We have to decide who we are as a nation as we move forward. Is this the new "normal?"Is that who we are now? We can debate from now till dooms day about the right to bear arms and the second amendment and on and on and on...In the mean time people, children are dying. Mothers and fathers and wives and sisters and aunts are crying for their loved ones.
We are the only civilized nation to have this many gun deaths and guns, by far. We are literally exterminating ourselves in the name of righteousness.
Yes we have the right to own a gun as many as we want and as big as we want we also have the right to set our house on fire and to eat dirt and to smoke 20 packs of cigarettes a day and to cut off our arms or legs...just because you can do something doesn't mean it's the best or right thing to do. Just because you can own an AK47 doesn't mean you should.
I think it speaks volumes about our country and our perception of freedom that this is the position of a board member of the NRA after the deaths in South Carolina;
Like I said at the beginning...is this who we really want to be?
Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of South Carolina in this time of such great sadness and loss.
Have a peaceful and safe weekend...
