Though long overdue, the recent ban of
bump stocks is wonderful news indeed. I have
been against any guns and have been writing
columns relentlessly, promoting the control of
guns to prevent mass shootings.
Think about a gun in your hand that can kill
anyone in a minute. If you kill someone, your
whole life will be rocky. You will likely either
be caught by law enforcement or you could be
dead after an encounter with law enforcement.
The law will always follow you.
You may get angry for some reason and
want to shoot someone you think your enemy
at that moment. An instant judgment many
times becomes irrational later on. It’s only a
moment. If you don’t have a gun, you can’t kill.
Killing never serves your purpose.
Still I do not understand why we would let
anyone be a mass shooter? The weapons that
are used in war, do we need to be made avail-
able for public? For what?
We shouldn’t even have toys of automatic
rifles for the kids. We don’t need to teach or
let our kids learn war games while they have
options for so many things.
In this world, we have only one life to live.
Why should we not use fully to live love and
laugh.
