Gunsmoke

While searching the news today I saw pictures of American gun owners that made me as an Army veteran worry about the direction of this country when it comes to the 2nd Amendment right to legally own a device designed to kill other human beings. One couple proudly displayed over a hundred guns and rifles they owned. The smallest amount I counted was fifteen weapons. American crime shows usually show minorities in trouble for shooting each other on the streets of our cities on a daily basis. There are over four hundred million guns registered in America. This cache is owned by ninety million citizens who for the most part would be described as being law-abiding.

Most of the baby boomers grew up watching movies and television shows where the men wore a gun on their hips because it was up to the individual to protect property and most importantly family. We as a nation have progressed from killing a president to killing our children at school. A solution to this threat is needed asap. We cannot become a police state like Nazi Germany. America needs to remain the leader of the free world because there are other countries that would love to see a democratic government collapse in flames.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
