The suicide of Adams Lanza, the man who went on a killing rampage in Sandy Hook Elementary School, reminds me of Judas Iscariot, the disciple who killed himself after betraying Jesus. Both are examples or greed and mental illness.
My question is why are so many people buying guns since the Sandy Hook massacre? Yes, I know guns don’t kill. People do. And a bullet doesn’t have anyone’s name on it, so innocent people get killed.
Gun laws need to be revisited and amended. Republicans and some Democrats alike are fighting President Barack Obama’s effort to change gun laws. He is not trying to take guns away from people. He’s just trying to keep them out of the hands of the wrong people.
Jesus said to “suffer the little children to come unto me, for such is the kingdom of God.“ Is it that we don’t believe in Jesus? We all need to take a minute and thank God for what he has done for us.
God was taken out of schools and now guns are in. When will it end?
Until you are placed in a situation like Sandy Hook, maybe you will see why change is good and very much needed.
