Words are very powerful.
Choose them wisely.
They inspire or defile.
Add a gun and you have chaos.
I awoke today with a feeling of excitement and hope. The tragedy of Representative Giffords shooting and the killing of all those innocent people has incited a lot of folks to talk about the political rhetoric in our nation and it's also inspired a lot of folks from Arizona to stock up on glocks. Whaddayathink about that?
I'm tired of the debate myself. I think it's ridiculous for the average gun owner to want a semi automatic with a magazine that holds 10 rounds, let alone 20 or more. If you're hunting deer, you don't need a semi-automatic. Why aren't we talking about gun control? Is the National Rifle Ass. that powerful? Where is the sanity and truth in the facts? Why are we as a nation so beholden to the premise that we all should have the right to own a gun?
Many years ago, I owned a gun. After a break in and assault of my roommate in my Saratoga home; I bought a Saturday Night Special. I learned how to shoot it and I enjoyed target practice. Then, I put it away in it's gorgeous leather case and promptly forgot about it.... until it was almost used on me. Then, when it was aimed at a spot on the wall near my head as I slept in order to get my attention... I knew it was time to get rid of it and I did. That cured me of ever wanting a gun and Tracy feels the same way. Wake up people!!!
