We all talk about protecting our youth from guns and that we should be protected from people who carry guns. We tend to forget where most of these guns that our youth are getting are from the homes they reside in or stolen from other households where they were not secured. It is not a gun issue it is a stupid people issue and/or poor parenting, or just plain stupidity in keeping your children and household safe.
What we fail to realize that even if we make guns illegal the fact remains they are still here and will ALWAYS be here and in the hands of people who will CONTINUE to use them for ill deeds.
The fact remains as well that what is written in our Constitution will remain so until an Amendment can be passed which involves Congress, who represent the people. I have also read that we are faulting our President on this but in actuality – the President does not have a constitutional role in the amendment process, the joint resolution does not go to the White House for signature or approval.
In short if you are worried about your youth, educate your youth regarding the concept of a gun, the new touch policy of a gun just like we would teach our youth not to touch or pick up a drug needle on the ground.
Education and wisdom first then a law change perhaps will prevail.
