"Newtown -- you are not alone."
December 18, 2012  | By Eric Gould  | 1 comment
 

The shock and grief is ongoing this week following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday. President Obama went to Newtown on Monday and delivered heartfelt remarks at an interfaith prayer vigil for the victims. As inexplicable as the tragedy was, the President tried to convey the thoughts of a nation, including, "We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change. We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law -- no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. But that can’t be an excuse for inaction. Surely, we can do better than this." –EG

Repeal the second amendment
this article of The Constitution was written centuries ago. It was written at a time when fledgling America was under continuous threat of being threatened.

Besides the Civil War, attacks on this country, the union of these United States, has come from foreign soil. Are gun owners thinking they must arm themselves with rapid fire, exploding guns and ammunition because they might, someday, come upon a terrorist?

Recently, terrorists have been citizens of the United States, exercising the second amendment to gather as many military rated killing machines as they can afford. Why is this OK? Why are their accumulation of such weapons and actions worth defending with the second amendment? Such behavior against innocent citizens would not have been tolerated when The Constitution was written, nor should they be today.

We are given the right to bear arms; to what end? To what amount of accumilation? To what purpose? Where is the point of too much?
