Yet “another” shooting… This time in a small town in Texas, where between 20 and 26 people were killed. This was done in a church, of all places. Not that long ago someone decided to fire on people in Vegas from a hotel casino. Still no real motives have been disclosed on “why” anyone would decide to do this. It is getting to the point where I almost hate to read the daily headlines each day. What is wrong with us? We keep getting mowed down by people who “should NOT have guns” but continue to have access to them anyway. No one can seem to muster up any serious background checks on these people, which means that at any point all of us are susceptible to violence (for no real apparent reason). Can we stop this from happening? Of course we can. Will we stop it from happening? Of course we won’t… The violence needs to end, but it will never happen as long as we continue to support the rights of unstable people who want to secure weapons in the first place. All I am asking for is stronger background checks on people. Most crazy people will let their intentions known when you ask them. That is why they can be designated as crazy. For some strange reason we respect their values above our own, and we supply them with the weapons they need. I don’t need to explain any more than what you already know at this point. If you support the rights of deranged individuals to bear arms then that makes you as deranged as they are. We need to listen to the “warning signs” of those who are mentally unstable. We need to check the Facebook pages and we need to listen to others who may have a clue. If we don’t take a stand than our own annihilation is imminent. I hope you don’t decide to wait until it happens close to your home. Right now the only difference between you and other victims is the “location.” Before your turn comes up you need to take a stand… We “all” do… Whether you agree of disagree, thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
