Should we make tighter gun laws?
Once again, some kid with a credit card and a subscription to a gun magazine
has decided to load up and make the news. At such times, there’s a casualty
we seldom consider: the way the broadcaster’s voice sounds too practiced,
the way the grief spilling out of the survivors sounds too familiar, the way
the stupid smirks on these murders’ faces, start to run together.
James Holmes’ victims didn’t die because of “fate,” or as “part of God’s
unfathomable plan,” but rather, because in America, a man can order up 6,000
rounds of ammunition as easily as a box of nails, because in America, we
believe that making it hard to buy a weapon of mass murder, puts an
unnecessary burden on guys who want to shoot doves and deer.
Should we put tighter restrictions on gun sales? Should be have more back
ground checks when we witness a person buying a large amount of ammunition?
Especially one that was not a regular customer. Think about it. What should
America do? It is happening too often.
