Much thanks to Jean for posting this-along with last weeks pro-gun protests, we see an America falsely divided by an issue that has been created to divide us. I strongly believe that we can, working together, listening to one another, come up with regulations to limit gun violence while not preventing the legitimate ownership and use of guns for hobby shooting, self defense etc.
We need to get to the root of the problem of violence and mass murder in our culture and guns are only a tool in the expression of those deep roots. Until we challenge the worldview, the mindset and the cultural paradigm that promotes violence, we will never stop our epidemic of murder. We can pull the whole thing up, including the roots-it is just not going to be easy or quick. But what other choice do we have?
