Another school shooting.
In a gun-free zone.
How many more of these do we need to figure out gun control does not work and start addressing the real problem?
You see, a gun is an inanimate object. No life of it’s own. No preference for good or evil. Only a tool.
Like any tool, the potential it has for good or evil is solely determined by the person holding it.
Does a gun amplify the potential and power for a person with evil intentions? Of course, it does. But it also amplifies the potential and power of a good person whose intention is to stop evil.
To repeat – it’s not the tool, it’s the person using it.
History has proven since guns have been around that gun control only harms good people.
I guess it’s true – if we refuse to learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. Innocent victims and all.
