During Trump inaguration I took this photo of the Capitol on TV. The reason I am posting this is because WE AS A NATION CANNOT LEGISLATE COMMON SENSE, DECENCY, NOR CULTURE. Stop and think if you are old enough that guns were never a problem in schools until the last few years. Heck you could bring a gun to school to go hunting or take it with you after you had hunted in the morning and NO one was shot. Also, some school had shooting classes and how to take care of your gun. WHAT HAS CHANGED is not the gun but the culture. No matter how many gun laws you have, evil people will kill. Until we address the root cause, you could ban all guns and the evil ones would still find a way to KILL. So here is my take on gun laws. Have just one. If you kill someone, immediate death pentlity. If you commit a crime with a gun, again give them the death pentlity. Why? Becuase if a gun is used in a crime they intended to kill you. Gang members should be rounded up and shipped to the front of the lines of engagements of war. If they dessert, death. I figure since the violent gun crimes are being blamed on the Capitol and the NRA, and the gun, why not pass a law that has teeth and since those who comment the crime care so little about others lives then they should forfeit theirs. Those teenagers in Parkland are ralling againist the NRA. Fact the kids are into a knee jerk reaction but the NRA has killed 0 people, nor has it used any tax payers money, however, this cannot be said about Planned Parenthood, who uses tax payers money to kill millions. But someone has to be the BLAME AND NOT THEM AND THEIR SOCIETY.
My MIL at age 5 who is now 98 soon to be 99. She could ride the interurban from Gallatin to downtown Nashville by herself when she was little and go to her Uncles office and he would give her some money and off she would go to the 5 and dime to shop BY HERSELF. Now children cannot play outside without an adult watching them. Growing up in rural Smith County, my family did not even lock our doors. Kids could go all over the community without fear of being hurt or taken. While my MIL and I are from differnet generations neither had to worry about school shootings. So what is different you ask. Look at the cultures and you will see why. Manners and respect were very promment in those times but not NOW.
