The recent slaughter at a Connecticut grade school and the subsequent cry for gun control has left me in a bit of a quandary as to what would be the correct way to address this issue. More guns? Less guns? No guns at all? Do we arm the teachers? Do we police the schools? Do we just realize the hopelessness of it all, chalk it up to the cost of doing business in a free society and get on with it by doing nothing at all?
Personally I believe that the latter shall prevail. Obama will posture . . . the NRA will posture . . . The media will make lots of money flooding the air waves with their posturing, but in the final analysis, although their may be a half-assed attempt to ban military type weapons, everybody will ultimately concede to the fact that it is the cost of doing business in a free and open society and pretty much forget about the whole thing . . . until the next killing spree. Then, once again, the knee jerker’s will come out of the closet and blame each other for the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in.
What to do? . . . What to do? . . . The sad fact is that neither side of the argument can handle the truth concerning what we need to do in order to get this country back on it’s feet. Because in the final analysis WE created this cesspool of violence and depravity we live in. This is what WE did with our freedom.
