I can barely speak nor type about the tragedy in Newton, Conn. An Elementary school? REALLY???!!!! A mall yesterday and now a children’s school today….when are these “Right to bare arms” laws going to start protecting us??? Whose Constitutional rights are being protected? Ours or the killers? The victims or the murderer?
We keep hearing about how “we” have to protect our Gun Rights so we can Protect ourselves from those that want to hurt us but ALL I keep seeing is how those Gun Rights keep guns in the hands of those that WANT to harm us…when I hear a story of how someone with those same Gun rights have PREVENTED somebody from creating this type of horrendous act then I will be on board but until then we need to TAKE AWAY the guns FIRST and then give them to those that are mentally stable…
AGAIN GUNS HAVE NEVER PREVENTED THIS KIND OF THING FROM HAPPENING, IT HAS ONLY CREATED THE PROBLEM!!!
AND NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT, IT IS NOT THE ANSWER TO ARM OUR TEACHERS, SALES CLERKS AND CITIZENS!!!
I need to wrap my head around this before I can write anymore. I have a 4 yr old daughter with me right now and I have a 10 yr old son that lives with his mother, my ex-wife…..I can’t imagine getting the phone call that about 18 sets of parents have gotten today. Please remember that when you are standing up for your rights to have and to hold your weapons…..Please remember that your children are the ones that you need to have and to hold on to because there are too many families today that can not do that any longer.
We all need to close our eyes and think hard about this and learn and know what is truly important : LOVE. Love one another. Feel amazing feelings and know that LOVE is the only way to prevent these type of tragedies. You don’t need a license to get LOVE. You just need patience and understanding. Access to LOVE instead of GUNS could have prevent this from happening. We will probably find out that the gunman was mentally unstable and killed his parents, the body at his home and his mother that worked in the school….maybe they were in the process of getting him help or maybe they ignored the signs until it was too late…either way if you know someone that shows signs of being mentally unstable PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR GUNS ARE NOT WITHIN THEIR REACH OR IF YOU KNOW THAT THEY HAVE GUNS AND BULLET PROOF VESTS THEN CALL THE DAMN POLICE!!!! TELL SOMEONE!!! COMMUNICATE BEFORE THIS EVER HAPPENS AGAIN! STOP THINKING IT WON’T HAPPEN THERE! STOP THINKING “HE” OR “SHE” WOULD NEVER……well they can and they would and they will if nothing is done to prevent it.
