Leave Your Guns At Home

When is enough, enough? Now we can see a shooting and killing in real time on television. To quote retired U.S. Army General Russel L. Honoré, “As a country we’re in a state of denial because we’ve confused the right to bear arms with the right to carry arms all the time anywhere or anyplace you want. We have to have a different kind of conversation in America and be prepared to speak about the politically unspeakable.”

Even our ancestors in the Wild West finally had enough. When will we learn, “don’t take your guns to town, leave your guns at home.” How many more innocent people will have to die before we demand and find a solution?
