I know it’s something that has been on all of our minds, and I know it may cause a lot of upheaval and my desire isn’t too upset anyone. If you don’t like what I’m saying, you have the wonderful opportunity to exit out of this page.
When someone decides to take another human(s) life; regulations, controls, or laws will not stop this person. Just like if someone decides to drink and drive, which is just as deadly.
The solution isn’t laws, more gun control, or abolishing the people’s rights to bear arms.
The solution is what our morals are, how we are raised, and how we are taught what’s right from wrong.
I’ve always been around guns, bows, knives, and many other forms of weapons. I have never had the desire to hurt someone with one of them though. They have been kept locked up, safe and out of reach (even if I did know where the key was located). I was raised to be taught that they were forms of protection for us, not weapons to hurt someone. My parents made sure I was taught safety first above everything.
More importantly I was raised on how to handle my feelings, in the sense that harming another person, or thing, was not the proper way to feel better. They encouraged us to take part in communicating, being understanding, and most
important to listen to each other. They had high standards for us to learn what the difference is between something that is right, and something that is wrong. My siblings and I were taught what the consequences of doing something that is wrong were, and how they didn’t affect just ourselves, but the people around us as well.
I plan on getting my own concealed weapon, not for the purpose of ever taking a life, but too help be a protector from the people who never were taught what’s right, and what’s wrong. Ill carry, with the constant prayer of never having to pull the trigger, and having the proper aim for if I do. For the Lord knows I would not handle it well, and would have a heavy heart.
Our society needs to go back to the Golden Rule. “Treat others as you want too be treated.”
For we can’t protect each other until we learn to love each other yet again. We should be caring, kind, understanding, and supportive of each other.
We receive what we place into this world, if we want understanding, kindness, and support than we must place that ourselves into the world for others.
