OUR NATION’S HEART WEEPS

October 3, 2017 at 2:03 am 2 comments

I hesitate to write this piece. Knowing human nature I am sure many will write articles about the tragedy in Los Vegas to express sorrow but a hidden reason, perhaps hidden from themselves, is to draw attention. With this in mind I write this article, not to draw attention but to voice an attitude I don’t understand. Therefore, I am not including any taglines for this piece. I don’t

When Sandy Hook occurred resulting in the death of twenty six and seven year olds, I thought things may finally change. That the nation would wake up to a wrong some hold dear. I have nothing against hunting. But who hunts with a semi-automatic weapon. Handguns are used to protect one’s family. But who needs a semi-automatic pistol to protect that family. I don’t understand how anyone can purchase a mass amount of weapons and not raise a red flag.

As I hear the numbers of fatalities I think this is not a shooting, this is the result of a plane crash. Then when I hear the number of fatalities and wounded, I think, this is not a shooting, this is on the level of a natural disaster. Unfortunately, this disaster is all too natural in our country.

    I feel a bit dispairing when nothing changes, in fact the sales of war guns upticks after these events. I understand we have constitutional rights to bear arms but no one person should be allowed to hoard those types of weapons. Our country needs to grow up, take accountability for the over reach of the NRA and devote more resources to assisting emotionally stressed or mentally unbalanced in this country. We are so afraidifferent of “others” but like that old Pogo cartoon it is time to face the fact that we have met the enemy. And the enemy is us.

    I’m with you. I am confused with the priorities and motivations this country has exhibited for some time now. Citizens life and welfare no longer matter.
