Do we not look around? Have we not learned from history? More guns in the Middle East, more killings. More guns for the cartels, more killings. More guns for the gangs, more killings. More guns for the extremists, more killings.
Now we are hearing buffoons talking about guns in the schools to protect kids. You've got to be kidding. Lincoln, McKinley, Kennedy and Reagan had guns all around to protect them, yet, three of them were killed and the other was seriously wounded.
Even Wyatt Earp knew that more guns would result in the status quo in Tombstone, so he limited the presence of guns in a lawless town. Eventually, shootings lessened.
The Founding Fathers were soldiers blazing trails and hunters to feed their families. That is why we have the 2nd Amendment. They did not expect to have guns that would fire hundreds of bullets in a few seconds.
Gun control is needed, just as we need speed limits for our streets.
