What a quandary we have with firearms in this country. When terrible things like the Aurora, CO theater shooting happen. How can you not wish firearms were not a part of the America experience? It’s the knee jerk reaction. What happened there was the fault of a society that doesn’t bring swift justice upon law breakers, swift punishment and/or praise, depending upon which is deserved, from the time our young are 3 years old. It’s not the fault of guns, it’s the fault of self-reliance, self-worth, or the lack thereof. Had that happened in Montana, there’s a very good chance someone would have ended the problem with their own firearm. You can’t blame the gun, for that cowardly perp could have driven his car into a crowd. You’ve got to blame a society gone astray, a society that teaches dependence rather than self-reliance, and dependence breeds cowardice. Had that shooter felt decent about himself, he would have valued the lives of others, and teaching dependency, as America now revels in, teaches only antipathy, disdain for self-worth, self-reliance, and decent thought. He didn’t value others because he didn’t value himself. It will be easy to blame the firearms, when what should be blamed is our drift toward the cowardice of dependence upon government rather than ourselves.
