Gun Issue About More Than Guns

05 March, 2018, 00:30 | Author: Essie Rivera
  • President Donald Trump shakes hands with Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Ariana Klein watched by fellow student Carson Abt at the start of a listening session on gun violence with teachers and students in the State Dining Room of the Whit

When it comes to protecting our Constitution, we should know that the laws of our land require judges to balance our rights.

To the lawmakers who try to blame the Federal Bureau of Investigation for not following up on the tip that the student wrote on social media that he wants to be professional shooter, yes, that should be investigated and never happen again. It's just common sense. Already, some states are struggling to pass bills that would ban bump stocks, the devices that allow assault weapons to fire continuously. Maybe if we portray the NRA as the villain.

The Stoneman Douglas School survivors had the unmitigated gall to declare that guns were the real problem, and they demanded action. Why can't we see that the Second Amendment has become long since outmoded and should be laid to rest in 2018? Before being elected to public office, he spent 35 years in law enforcement.

When a president steered the conversation onto armed teachers, everyone started talking about their outrage... instead of talking about limiting access to guns. This is what I think he should have said. I keep wondering how things got so bad.

Turkey's Erdogan to embark on 4-country Africa tour
Ilham Aliyev congratulated President Erdogan on his birthday, and wished him success in his activity for the prosperity of Turkey. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks to members of his ruling party on Saturday.

So, it's little wonder why our leaders have repeatedly cowed to the gun lobby's demands and have refused to budge in any foreseeable way regarding legislation that could anger the private influence to whom they are so deeply beholden. Criminals have always existed, and always will. Jesus hung on the cross with two of them 2,000 years ago.

"There is this idea", he said, "that with our gun culture, we can't upset the apple cart, we can't change it, because for so many people this is a part of their tradition". Don't like the Second Amendment? Small changes to gun control laws could save lives. Getting to 2/3 consensus might prove hard if not impossible. Even Walmart has joined the fray, raising the age limit on gun purchases to 21.

It would be hard to find a newsroom in the USA that hasn't been affected by covering unspeakable tragedies caused by the availability of guns. They look repeatedly at the landscape of America's gun culture and warn that the carnage will be repeated if nothing is done. We sure are good at giving mixed signals. Nevertheless, the NRA and other enthusiastic gun owners dismiss the seriousness of our gun violence today.
