I don’t want to upset anyone. You can make nasty comments about what I am saying and how I say it – I will not come back and read the comments because I might be inclined to try and get the last word.
I have four beautiful granddaughters and one grandson, thanks to my daughter and son-in-law. The son-in law is an avid hunter (the kind that puts meat on the table), and he started almost at birth teaching his children about gun safety.
At the appropriate time they received a BB gun, later a pellet gun, .22 rifle, 410 shotgun, then a deer rifle. The year they became old enough to hunt in the state of Texas, they went on their first hunt and the four oldest have bagged at least one deer each. Their guns know who the boss is and have never harmed a person.
My son blessed us with two fantastic grandsons, but then he and his wife hit a snag and the grandsons are raised by their mother, except for two weekends a month. I hope they are never around firearms.
Accidents are common around the uninformed. There have been two children under the age of 5 shot in the head this week – a 2-year-old shot himself, and a 5-year-old was shot by an 8-year-old friend who was playing with a real gun – and you blame the gun?
If they stopped manufacturing guns today, guns in the wrong hands would still be around for thousands of years. You really have to feel sorry for the anti-gun people, the liberals and the dreamers who envision a perfect, fairytale world.
Fairytales are the product of Hollywood and television. We need to try and fix the real problem – the human problem. Some people are mentally unstable and some just have violent personalities. But when liberals have the inability to see the real problem, they go off in the wrong direction, point fingers, blame something else, make a lot of noise and waste tax dollars.
The only gun law that would work is a background check that looks at criminal history, mental health, drug use and alcohol abuse.
