It’s like a funeral. Time stops, while we have reverent thoughts of memory. We drive away, and life starts up again.
Guns have a single purpose: to kill. It can be justified to kill. Rare is the creed that denies self defense.
The Right to Bear Arms is equivalent to the Right to Kill, provided you are willing to suffer the consequences. This is an equation.
But some diseased minds, and some unformed adolescent minds, do not weigh the consequences. So they are free to act as if the equation does not exist.
Some people in this country clutch tightly their Right to Kill, while denying others their Right to Live.
Although life on earth is full of horrors, it is shocking that the two parties, the Party of Right to Kill and of Party of Right to Live, can’t find a meaningful compromise.
It is saddening that this country chooses to sacrifice the lives of their children for the sake of a principle: The Right to Kill shall not be infringed.
The funeral ends; the mourners disperse; life goes on.
But these funerals could have been prevented.
