Regarding the Texas and Tennessee church shootings..
These nut jobs KNEW no one would be carrying in church. What cowards!!!! Had just one person had their gun, dude been dead upon entering the church or
perhaps before he entered..definitely wouldn't have been as many casualties.
People who own guns NEED to be carrying every single time they walk out the door!!!!!
To even talk about gun control is idiotic imo. People kill people. Without the human finger, the gun wouldn't fire..point, blank, period.
We have NEVER had such a problem until recently.
WHY hasn't this always been a problem since there have always been guns? I grew up in the country. We had guns behind every door. I NEVER touched them
unless I was asked to. We were taught RESPECT and definitely taught to respect guns.
My take on the root cause is this....
Way too many people on opioids and way too many on antidepressants. Seriously... Mental health has gotten worse in people because there is a pill for
everything. After losing my son, my doctor felt as though I needed Zoloft. It may work for others but after one day of being on it, I was even more
depressed..suicidal depressed. I stopped taking it changed doctors and was prescribed exercise. Damn if it didn't work. I came out of my depression
and got fit at the same time.
People have different reactions to different drugs. It's out of hand. Depression and anxiety have root causes and a pill is not a cure. It only serves
to mask the real issues.
Again... The problem isn't guns. The problem is drugs. They are making people nuts.
With all that said... I've decided I'm going this week to get my gun permit and shop for me a hand gun. I should have already done that. I'm a
Realtor® and meet strangers to show them homes. I've never been worried and still not fearful but I'm definitely aware there is a HUGE problem with
ETA: Even if laws change it won't change the fact people who go nutso will indeed find ways to get guns to kill.
We have to get to the ROOT of the problem and stop masking.. GUNS DONT KILL. PEOPLE KILL.
