Okay don’t answer that (haha). This seemed to be an easier blog to write, maybe because the topic keeps coming up and especially since it has been in more recent news.
There is a small percentage of humans out there who have been given rights to carry firearms and use them in illegal and in horrific ways. Yes, shame on them. Possibly, something missing in their brain when born, or possibly, some abnormality in personality development.
We are all born with genes given to us and personalities that grow as we mature. If someone has a gun for hunting its because they do it for sport, (no, I am not a fan, to each their own) or maybe they need to put food on their table. Others may have a gun because they are protecting their loved ones from bad things, or bad people, they are not considered crazy, these are regular everyday humans in the world.
There is absolutely no one to blame for the people who do these things. Not the parents, teachers, girlfriends/boyfriends, wives/husbands, the world. I do believe people snap for personal reasons but I also believe people that have normal brains no matter how much they snap could never, would never be able to possibly shoot another human being intentionally. Blaming will not fix the situation. So instead, wee need solutions. Solutions that work. Tighter gun control hmm… for who? and punish the responsible gun owners? Maybe the restrictions of being of a certain age and not having a prior violent criminal, yes, but how about ANYONE applying for a gun needs to complete a full psychological evaluation. When will this be enforced? Sounds simple. But why not?
I’m not saying this is going to solve all of the incidents of massacre, because I do believe if someone is psychologically insane and snaps they may still try and find a way. It just shouldn’t be so easy. It’s worth a try. Peace & Love
