Just because someone decides to use a gun to perpetrate evil doesn't mean that everyone should sacrifice their natural right to responsibly defend
themselves. Evil men will perpetrate evil regardless of any man-written law or mass-cultural belief. It is inherent in man to be evil as well as good;
Take away guns and people will be stabbed, take away knives, and people will be bludgeoned, take away sticks, and people will be strangled. It is the
liberal paradigm to try to save everyone person from harm and tragedy through litigation by placing the blame on inanimate objects. Its a fools dream
to think that we can solve these issues in such a manner. As a firefighter I am deeply saddened by this event, but it serves as a reminder to me, as I
hope it does for all fellow first-responders, of exactly why I wake up and do the job that I do; Evil can and will manifest itself in many forms, be
it in the form of man or otherwise, so it is our responsibility to fight the inevitable tragedies that will face each and everyone of us with the
GOOD in man. We can't save everybody and we never will. It's just a sad truth, one I face on a regular basis, and it would do a lot of people a lot
of good to realize that. Stop weighing our rights and life by numbers of deaths caused by evil and start weighing it by the good being done by good
people everyday in acts of heroism like these brave firemen. Where are the stats and percentages of kindness, bravery, and sacrifice? I''m so sick
of the fear I see in people. Life is scary! That's what makes it precious! We protect it with personal nurturing, love, responsibility, and
accountability not litigation, and government control. We change this world one person at a time, one mind at a time, but have no delusions of peace
and euphoria because this is it ladies and gentlemen. Guns, no guns, makes no difference. Fight evil, be strong, and be good.
Please, if you've read this, take a moment to pay your respects to these men and all men and women who do things that keep us safe(r) everyday.
