Its time to talk about gun control

Its time to talk about gun control

"But the new survey estimates that 133m of these guns are concentrated in the hands of just 3% of American adults - a group of super-owners who have amassed an average of 17 guns each".

That is very unfortunate for the innocent victims of these vile gang members who, because of the strict gun laws the Democrat governors and the mayors of these blue states have enacted, can not gain access to the type of weaponry necessary to properly defend themselves and are subsequently murdered by criminals with much superior firepower, causing great sorrow to their loved ones.

Then pro-gun people respond that the overall gun homicide rate has dropped 50 per cent since 1993, despite a boom in gun sales, and point to polls showing a decline in support for gun regulation. "I think she would be happy".

The Las Vegas shooting has been documented as one of the worst massacres in the history of the United States. In an interview, Radie recalled hearing screams from the crowd, followed by sudden silence as bullets rained down, kicking up dust. Of all the many convoluted and polarizing issues that exist in the US right now, gun ownership is arguably one of the most hard to wade your way through. "Conservatives say, Annie, get your gun".

There is risk and unfairness everywhere, but I'll take my chances being harmed and gored by big business, thank you. Inside every rural Canadian is a wild woodsman just waiting to get out and go and hunt a bear or a wolf or a moose and they too keep arsenals of weapons in their homesteads for just that objective. Anyone who gets too vocal about guns and says the "wrong" things winds up in the crosshairs him or herself. "I don't take a stand either way", she said, but in the wake of the shooting "now I tend to go anti". We should make the same decision about assault rifles and other automatic weapons that have no legitimate sporting goal. "They're meant to kill, and that's it".

Since the carnage in Las Vegas, there's been a lot of talk on TV and commentary in print about gun control.

What if there was a possibility of you owning guns, going hunting and feel entirely safe whenever intruders strike and ensure a proper way of handling weapons? In a gory incident that has continued to tug at the heartstrings, the man let off volleys at the crowd from a vantage position on the 32nd floor of a hotel suite, where he had been lodging for days, before eventually turning the weapon upon himself.

Our country needs stronger gun regulations and harsher punishments. As officer Tim McCarthy might say, "Remember, the most risky part of any gun is a loose nut on the trigger". I am here to merely set out facts about the U.S.'s relationship with guns.

People more focused on conspiracy theories that claim there was more than one shooter, or that is a false-flag event concocted by the government for whatever nefarious reason, is just a distraction from the center of this conversation: guns.

We believe that a better informed citizenry can inch us toward a safer country. Back in 2012, a 20-year-old, Adam Lanza, walked into the Sandy Hooks Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, heavily armed. It was also a protection against the attacks by Native Americans which required every family to have ammunition especially in the absence of a regular army. This country was anchored in Judeo-Christian principles teaching us that all life is valuable because we are made in the image of God.

"I don't know what can be done", he said. We need a more comprehensive analysis of what triggers people to commit this kind of violence and how it can be detected. Is that the answer? As details emerge, it was clearly well planned and even dress-rehearsed, his arsenal of lethal weapons collected over time and modified to make them even more deadly, his hotel room chosen meticulously for its proximity and birds-eye view of the concert arena and a plethora of surveillance equipment installed in the room to monitor an approach from members of law enforcement. Amusing thing though, I have never heard of a Mexican terrorist. On Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival killing dozens and wounding hundreds. A mother of three from Beaumont, California, Ahlers was "loved by everyone that met her", Miller said.

We must ask ourselves, do we want solutions or more of the same rhetoric?
