Gary Graham is an actor. He has a blog. A recent post of his addresses the recent mass shootings. His post is superb. There is a teaser about it on Fox News, but the actual post is here: Big Hollywood Blog Archive To Arms!!!
Just a small quote from the post is this:
Check the link out. I think you will find it worth forwarding via email or printing out for friends and family."....Beyond the inevitable, yet ultimately meaningless, questions of why he did it, there’s a much more important question we should be asking ourselves: What if one or more of those innocent civilians had been packing, and was trained, and drew his or her gun…and shot back?
Things may have turned out very differently.
What is needed, now more than ever, is for Americans to pull their heads out of their tails and become proficient with firearms. And then, having gained competency with their safe usage, arm themselves. And then, having armed themselves, be prepared to deploy those arms in the responsible defense of innocent life.
Guns stop crime.
Sorry for the whiplash all you Lefties just got doing the double-take on that last line. (Call your chiropractor for an adjustment, it’ll be all right.) But yes, guns stop crime...."
