The gun control debate raging in Washington DC and state level is a dicey issue. For many parents it’s heart lynching to bury a child lost in senseless shootings like in Sandy hook, CT. In such circumstances the love and image of the child gone for ever or the sight of gun shot wounds with those still with us is more powerful than the second amendment(Amendment II) of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right to keep and bear arms. But, is it time to completely erase this clause from the constitution of United States?
The majority of American citizens feel it’s not time yet. No single American citizen condone senseless killing by the gun or any other means. Guns are on trial because they are easily available and accessible to the knuckle heads(mentally deranged), who feel empowered with the possession of a gun or riffle. Nothing matter to them when they’re in evil spirit control zone, not even human life. And here is the core of the gun issue; get them out of the mentally sick people. For over two hundred years American citizens have enjoyed their freedom to bear arms, what has changed now. The evil winds from the south?
Times have changed for families. In the past families closely took care of one another, especially those who seemed to steer away from the norm. Nowadays it is “you’re on your own,” deal with your own cross or ‘hush hush’ nobody wants to know your personal issues. Fabric threads that held nuclear family together no longer holds, hence impossible for the society(government) to identify those likely to cause harm to the community on time. Families are the best source to provide personal data to prevent individuals likely to kill. And this is where the debate has to start. How do we identify these people and keep them away from guns?
This is not an insult to Sandy hook parents healing from senseless killings. The nation still mourns and stands with you, but debate ought to be adjusted and refocus squarely on mental illness. Time will come(change of wind) ‘paradigm shift’ when gun control will take care of itself. Not only is this American dilemma, across the frontiers where American influence is slowly sipping through the cracks of dictatorship, presents impossible challenge sermonizing democracy when it airs out as confusion within American citizens.
Therefore, this debate should not be cut short or made shallow for hasty solution, rather allow time to fix it right. Remember no airtight gun restriction will end murder, those bent to do evil will use all mean to satisfy their crooked desires.
