Another Reason to Strengthen Gun Laws

This has been a strange year for me. I’ve gotten to know a lot of people who are pro-hunting, pro-guns, pro-war. They have influenced my thought process, and made me see things as much more complicated than I thought. But then, the tragic death of a 3rd grader from Cassidy Elementary in Louisville, KY brings things into clarity again. This is a death that should not have happened. He was a little boy, and he and is sibling who was in kindergarten decided to play with a gun in the garage. Why did they have access to that gun in the first place? I understand that we have the right to bear arms, but when that right makes guns accessible to children, hasn’t it gone too far? I am saddened by this incident in indescribably ways. I wish we lived in a world where the only weapons were words.

    Even word weapons are deadly. There’s the bulling on Facebook that led a girl to commit suicide.

      Good point. I really wish this were a world where weapons of all sorts were unnecessary, but I know that humans are incapable of that.
