I have been wondering about this for a while. Sometimes I look at what is going on around me and I just have to shake my head. I see what is happening in the world and get, well, not necessarily scare.
I do NOT want to live in a country where everyone has/needs a gun. This concept is just crazy to me. And what freaks me out more is that people who I trust and respect are all gung-ho about guns. But it just sounds like total idiocy. We are supposed to feel safer with MORE guns around? And it doesn't look like it is going to end. I do not want to live in a country where people are always so afraid that we need to be jumping at every movement.
People say, "USA: love it or leave it." Do you know how hard it is to leave it? I can almost see Canada from my house, and I can drive there. But to stay there is much more difficult. I don't love the US anymore. I am ashamed of our country. I am ashamed of the bullying that occurs on so may levels. We have become a country where all we do is attack each other.
Am I crazy in wanting to leave? Am I crazy in seeing our country going down a path that leads to places even more frightening? I feel at a loss to do anything.
No, you are not going to convince me that more guns are ok. Don't even try. Comments that go in that direction will be removed.
