Some time ago there was a tragic incident on the college campus of Santa Monica Community College and/or Santa Monica Junior College, Santa Monica, California on June 7, 2013 in which a gunman was shooting cars and buses before he headed to the Southern California educational institution and began shooting at several students in the library before Police and local authorities fatally shot him this after he shot both his father and brother at their house while setting it on fire. There is also the April 19, 2013 incident on the campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where the two “Boston Marathon Bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev shot multiple times and killed Campus Police Officer, Sean Collier who was responding to the incident he was only 26 years old. What about the December 14, 2012 shooting tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut where gunman, Adam Lanza shot and killed 27 innocent victims many of them young innocent children until he shot and took his own life. I can go on giving you more incidents and tragedies that have taken place in the United States but I think you get my point. The problem is not with guns and/or weapons specifically it is with the people that carry the guns and/or weapons and intend to use it for harm and dangerous acts for whatever unknown reason or unknown message that they want to spread by hurting and killing innocent people to get the negative attention that they feed on. The way we as a society can help with the danger of Gun control and weapons control in general is to give Law-abiding citizens a gun to help protect and defend themselves and maybe others against a dangerous person or a terrorist that they might be encountering because at this moment the bad people have all the guns and weapons that if used improperly can hurt and kill more innocent victims, we need some good people to carry a gun and/or weapon to stop terrorist and dangerous criminal acts as well as to prevent the unnecessary injury and death of more innocent victims. I strongly and firmly believe that the United States as a country needs to look at this problem very seriously or tragedies and incidents will just keep continuing.
As I was reading and watching the funeral and memorial services of some of the victims of the Arizona shootings tragedy involving Arizona Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords who was a victim as well as she was shot in the head. What really hit me hard about this unfortunate incident is that one of the victims was a sweet little girl who was only nine years old and had her entire life ahead, now her life is a sweet memory and a missing piece of love and happiness to her beloved family to which I pay my respects and condolences for their grief and loss. Another part that bothers me very much about this incident is that the suspected gunman was a 22 year old young man that had a reputation and the behavior of being mentally unstable, threatening and frightening to several people including several students at the community college where he attended classes, even of the college instructors that taught him said that suspected assailant would yell in class for no apparent reason. The gunman was believed to purchase his gun(s) and weapon(s) at a weapons store in Texas, where they do not check any background(s) or criminal record(s) so just about anyone can purchase a weapon in Texas without worry and then go to another state to commit your cowardless act or crime. As a nation, we need to change our gun law(s) and regulation(s) so that all 50 states of the union are on the same page in regards to gun(s) and violent act(s) or else I have a bad feeling that these kinds of tragedies are not going to stop until we make them stop.
