When Is Enough Enough?
I turned on my computer, logged onto the Internet, and what did I see? “BREAKING NEWS: Shooting at Sikh Temple!” The first thing that goes through my mind is “Oh my God!” The second thing that goes through my mind is, “It’s like Aurora all over again.”
And you know what? It is like Aurora! Sure, the shooter is dead, so we may never know what motivated this attack, and it’s too early to know what sort of weapon the shoorter was using. But how many more shootings are going to occur before the elections before we get some stricter gun laws?!! I’ll be shocked if Congress doesn’t act on this! And if it doesn’t, then maybe they will after another shooting occurs! Because you know what Congress not taking action tells people who may be tempted to do their own shootings? It says nothing will prevent them from getting guns the legal way, so fire away!
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the Second Amendment. If someone wants to go hunting or protect themselves in their homes, that’s their choice and it’s protected by the constitution. But when anyone can walk into a gun shop and buy an assault weapon used by military forces, then you know something’s not right!
So Congress, do us all a favor, make some stricter gun laws before we suffer any more deaths!
