NO LIGHT HEART
I virtuously wrote my blog yesterday, and it was lighthearted. I may publish it some day, but today is not the day. My heart is too heavy with the massacre in Orlando.
I am not going to ask, “What has happened to this country?” That’s futile. And I think the answer is obvious. High-powered guns are too easy to obtain. The AR-15 has become the go-to gun for American murderers.
Hunting is fine.
Defending your home is fine.
Being able to buy an AR-15 is ridiculous.
Until this rampant misuse of the Fifth Amendment is corrected, Americans will continue to slaughter Americans. Apparently, that’s just what we do. This is not soldier fighting soldier; these are innocent Americans out living their lives – moviegoers, school children, people dancing at a night club -- until some hate-filled person grabs an assault rifle and decides to end their existence.
I need to go watch my grandson play with his dinosaurs or his train set. I need to read to my granddaughter. I need to pray that some asshat doesn’t mow them down.
