Living By The Gun…
Just in February, another shooting on a college campus leaves three dead including the shooter; bullets riddle a city council meeting leaving six dead; five women shot to death in a retail shop as an apparent robbery goes bad and to top it off, we have a Presidential Candidate who says that the “second amendment” is as important then the “first amendment.”
After the shooting last year at Virginia Tech I posted my concerns, April 18th, 2007, and my desire to see gun controls. Again I re-post that belief:
“Gun Control” is an issue that reaches farther than the City of Warren.
Last Sunday I went to the Unitarian Church in Youngstown and afterwards, during the coffee get together, a comment was made to me about the many murders Warren had experienced in the past week. This person, who teaches at YSU, even stated that it looked like Warren might be “overtaking” Youngstown as the “Valley’s” murder central.
As a Viet Nam Era Vet, who also survived being ten feet and to the right of the Ohio Guard on May 4th, 1970 at Kent State University, I do have a strong opinion on the matter of “Gun Control.”
Maybe Virginia Tech, and the “horrific” murders, will open our eyes to the NEED to revisit the issue and implement a uniform NATIONAL Program.
I know that “gun advocates”, plus so called “sportsmen”, will run and quote the Constitution on their “rights” to “bare arms” but the victims of this “mass murder” also had Constitutional rights, that of “Life, Liberty and Happiness.”
