I am so sorry for all those poor souls who died at the hands of a very disturbed young man in Newtown, Connecticut. The killer used two handguns and an assault rifle, all of which apparently belonged to his mother. What possible good can come from owning these weapons? And what is it about the US that seems to breed so many of these of these killers?
I wrote about this in another post back in the summer but every week or two there seems to be another mass US murder story. How many times does this need to happen before we wake up and do something about it? That people agree to live this way is the real insanity.
And that this could happen in one of the so-called safest places in America is very disturbing. It’s an atrocious wherever it happens, but what this really tells us is that there are troubled souls everywhere that need help.
Some would say the problem is not the guns themselves, but the people using them. Fair enough. But as long as there so many tortured impulsive souls out there, does it make sense to give easy access to weapons?
I ask again, as many others have, if guns were not as readily available would so many people be being murdered?
