Shot in the Dark

Two more mass shootings by two more individuals with demons in their heads and lots of guns ammo to show their message for all to see.

Once again we have the liberal left screaming for action, gun reform laws. Once again you have the NRA screaming that the democrats are hell bent to take away our guns and abolish the Second Amendment.

Once again I sit on the sidelines and wonder where is the compromise in this mess we’re in? Is there even a middle ground in this? I think there is but the extremists on both ends aren’t willing to listen because their agenda is right and there can be no compromise.

My thoughts have always been to enforce the existing gun laws already on the books, incarcerate those who commits these acts against our fellow citizens, which includes keeping guns and bullets out of their hands and put more money toward mental health awareness.

The second Amendment is only as good as the people allow it to be. So long as we have dysfunctional people out there, killing mass people for the pure pleasure of a sick thrill, and not do anything more than cry out for more gun control, then yes our amendment is in deep trouble. But that goes for all of our freedoms: speech, right to assemble, press and our privacy. Misuse or abuse any of those rights and we run the risk of losing them. Obviously, what occurred on January 6 is proof of what happens when a group of extremists abuse our rights.
