There will never be a repeal of the Second Amendment and no one is asking for it.
But you wouldn’t know that from reading some of the recent letters to the editor.
What I want is accountability for guns in the wrong hands.
There have been many shootings where the shooter committed suicide by cop or shot themselves.
The shooter from Aurora is trying to plea bargain for life in prison on our dime.
This is a man who willfully bought a gun, ammo and body armor online. No questions asked.
Next, he started shooting at a captive audience.
He was protected by his body armor and another person with a gun could not have hurt him.
In Newtown in less than five minutes more than 150 bullets were fired.
They hit 26 people, 20 of them children ages 6 and 7.
Then the coward shot himself.
If you don’t think there was something wrong with that scenario, then you need help desperately.
Arm teachers so the kids can get caught in the crossfire?
What got to me was that 20 families who sent a child to school had now lost a child.
The families of the six adults had lost wives, mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
I am having a hard time dealing with all this sorrow their families and friends are going through.
If one of the victims had been my child I would be crazy with grief.
But what do I hear?
“Someone is coming to take my guns.”
Are guns more important than the lives of children?
We have seen two mass shootings here in Wisconsin. Which family member are you willing to give up?
A simple background check could help prevent a lot of heartache and grief.
Are you going to listen to the companies that make a profit from the sale of these arms and those who justify the unregistered possession of automatic assault rifles, 30-round ammo clips and weapons of mass murder?
Or will you listen to your own heart and mind? Speak out, save a child.
