Although severely disgusted with the happenings last week, there really isn’t much of a question in my mind regarding this. The purpose of the second amendment is not only to provide protection for ones self and family from criminal elements, it was put in place as a guard to ensure our freedom. The average citizen is to have access to the same “firepower” that could be able to be used against them by a tyrannical government should the need arise. I pray it never does, but with that said where does either side want to start. People claim the mental health side, the guns cause violence side and the no gun ban side. How about we look at the real problem, the lack of ethics, compassion and obligation today. Society has become desensitized to violence as a whole which causes human life to be worth less to an individual. Fixing symptoms does nothing to kill the moral virus that has risen its head in today’s society.
