Let me state from the beginning. I pray for those whom lost their lives and the families that are burying their dead children.
The "gun debate" has come up again. We must ban this, that and the other thing. We must think of the children.
I understand, honestly.
I believe the most prudent approach should be the simplest.
See how easy that was? No more "school shootings", no more carnage of our innocent children, no more "divide and conquer" politicking to strip the rights of others.
I know that many will be against this because they've gotten used to having the cheap "daycare" we've been providing so that they (the parents) can make a career or whatever. It's all about them (the parents) until reality sets. They gave up their rights and let someone else raise their children and those surrogates failed at the most fundamental duties, their safety and security.
Imagine with me, if you will, a country where parents actually raised their children. Where parents spent time with them and educating them, teaching them and showing them the world... Maybe along the way, imparting their own morality to their offspring.
Take responsibility for your choices and the failures they led to. Understand that abrogating others rights doesn't negate your duties as a parent nor will it make your children safer.
