We continue to arm ourselves and we continue to kill each other with greater ease and efficiency.

It sickens me to hear the comments that if only the good people at a church service were armed that maybe the armed racist, terrorist would not have shot them all down.

Perhaps we should reflect on the fact that it is more difficult to vote than purchase a gun.  And of those two rights, one is infinitely more important that the other.

And the idea that it is an armed citizenry that keeps our government in check requires a paranoid suspension of reason.  To believe that the only thing that separates the volunteer American Military and our duly elected representatives from enslaving us is one’s own personal arsenal is ludicrous.

At some point, we must stand down and ask ourselves how many guns do we need and who should have them? 

Consider… You can’t legally yell “fire” in a crowded movie house. So there are limits to free speech.

Consider… You can’t vote without meeting predetermined requirements. So there are limits to suffrage.

I don’t know about you, but knowing that there are more requirements for a person to legally drive a car than there are to own and carry a gun doesn’t make me feel safer or more free.  And I say this as a long time gun owner and hunter.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
