Second Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Amendment 2. Clearly the gunman in the grocery store in Colorado, did not have the above in mind. So why does the Second Amendment argument come up each time we have a mass shooting? Simple, gun owners care more about guns than people. Our own city council won’t even consider possible solutions. Heaven forbid that we conform to a better way of life! It doesn’t matter that a lot has changed since the Second Amendment was written. It doesn’t matter that we have first responders; police, sheriff’s and the National Guard already fully armed. It doesn’t matter that those who have guns leave them where thieves and children can access them. It doesn’t matter! Otherwise we would not have the heartbreak of ten more people being murdered needlessly. Meanwhile this is the reality of living in the United States of America. May God help us all.
