You hear it all the time "guns don't kill people, people kill people". No...people kill people WITH GUNS. Take away the guns from the equation and thousands less people would die.
A child is dead because he thought his dads gun was a toy.
A woman is dead because her husband was of the opinion,"if I can't have you no one can".
12 killed and 70 wounded in a movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
26 dead, most of whom were children in a grade school shooting in Connecticut.
Nine people who were at a prayer meeting in South Carolina who are dead.
A twelve year old boy in Ohio who was playing with a toy gun and killed in seconds by police...
and there are so many more...
And now two more deaths of two young people who were doing their jobs and gunned down on live television.
I am not out to debate the second amendment. I don't think guns are bad. I think our mentality and fascination toward guns borders on the absurd and that is troubling.
For the first time EVER, this year more people will die due to guns than will die in automobile accidents! http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/01/americas-top-killing-machine/384440/
Please, please, please...
Let's come together and fix this.
