That seems like the sane thought after hearing about the massacre in VA. I think the answer is the opposite. We need more guns, we just need to have them in the hands of the right people.
The news are saying an array of things that just make my head spin. Who should be blamed? I have heard the word porn at least 10 times in the last 30 minutes… I ask myself, what does it have to do with this?
Profile this, security that, alert here… terrorist? psychopath?
The reality here is that whoever did this has a chance to kill 32 people and himself because no one was there to stop him. Even crazy people know that they are not going to go shoot a police station, because they have guns and you will not get to kill too many. I remember the story of the carjackers that went to a city where they allowed conceal and carry and they ended up shot.
I personally do not like guns, but I feel that we need to protect ourselves and I am almost scared that if something goes down I will not be able to protect what I care about. What do you do? What if someone just picks the day you got to the mall to start killing people there?
I hate this feeling of not being safe. I know that the sense of security I had before 9-11, Columbine and today was a false of security, but it did feel great. And for the people that think this is no big deal, think if it was someone that you loved… how would you feel. If your life was suddenly destroyed by this tragedy… then what? Lets not forget that people are being killed all over this world, lets not be so naive and know that it could touch our lives any time… then again, living in fear is no way to live.
