We the People
With the slaughter of innocent school children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the almost daily acts of gun violence in the United States, I would like to offer up some thoughts, not that they will do any good, but here they are anyway.
Fault is always looked for. It is not the fault of an overabundance of weaponry in the United States, it is not the fault of the NRA, it is not the fault of gun manufacturers, it is not the fault of the government, it is not the fault of violence in our entertainment industry, it is not the fault of our news-hungry media, and it is not the fault of our mental health system. We the people are to blame.
Knowing the vulnerability of an unarmed citizenry, it was we the people who wrote the Constitution allowing for the bearing of arms, and it is we the people who insist upon a loose definition of that second amendment right. Thus we have an overabundance of guns in the United States.
