The Gun Debate

It’s plain to see that violence is running rampant in various countries causing suffering and human trauma.  It is engrained in the human psyche to sometimes explode on your fellow man.  The use of guns as a means to destroy another individual is a subject that has been debated countless times.  It is written in the constitution that we have a right to bear arms, but do we really?  Self-defense is important but at what lengths must we go to feel protected and not in danger.

Tragedies have been occurring with witless, angry, monsters buying guns at stores and than going on killing sprees.  Imagine a world where guns didn’t exist and men would have to fight instead of shoot.  Only cowards that know they are the weaker man subscribe to the utilization of weapons to face their opponents.  What are we teaching to the next generation of people that yearn for peace and compassion? That it is better to hate and let loose on someone than demonstrate self-control, awareness of demons, and composure.

Death should be wished on no man because there is no coming back from it.  To give in to such illogical emotion and fire a gun at someone in retaliation or defiance should be shunned by communities.  The sight of seeing one of the presidential candidates, Rick Santorum, go to a shooting range in support of the NRA left me with a scar that I will remember forever.  I am scared of guns and would rather fight someone one-on-one than rely on a man-made calamity that has destroyed families and made people shed precious tears.

The days of being a real warrior are over and now people are wimping out and succumbing to using a gun to defend their honor.  How cool would the world be if guns were not sold anymore and people had to develop real guts to face their enemy the way God intended, on a battlefield where one’s metal is truly tested and respect is earned the good old fashioned way.  Let’s keep idiots like the man that shot Trayvon Martin from haunting us.
