Our constitution here in the U.S. gives us the right to bear arms. It was added to the constitution so that we could bring up a national guard to protect this country should we need to. At that time too, the people did not have a Safeway or Lucky Store to buy food at. They had to go out and hunt to sustain themselves. Today we have the benefit of a grocery store so that we can bring meats to our tables. And we have an armed force to defend this country.
Here is a really good reason that we do not need gun control in this country as it appears on today’s headline news…From CNN.com…”MASS KILLINGS AT SCHOOL.”
Yes, today 27 were killed at an ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! An elementary school! How sad is that? One of possibly two gunmen has been killed, shot down in a classroom. 18 of the 27 killed were kids. Kids! This shooting has the possibility of being the second worst school shooting in our country. Remember the shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007? 32 people died and 17 others were wounded on that sad day back on April 16th 2007. Remember the shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado back in 1999? 15 died and 21 others were injured.
How many more will die before this country toughens up the gun control laws? How many? Write your Congressman and Senators to put a stop to this type of needless heartache and death!
