We won't learn from lax gun laws
A teacher I knew loved to say, "Make some new mistakes." Here in America, we love the old.
Two headlines from the past week: "Bill would further advance" (Feb. 16 news story). Same old story, the Bogey-Man is a sex fiend hanging onto the schoolyard fence, though it's been proven that if your child is molested, it's most likely going to be by a parent, relative or neighbor. But legislators like to feel good about themselves, and who dares fault them for a bill that, ostensibly, protects children?
Now, if it's to protect children from a metal projectile fired from a gun, not so much. Sure, let's get lots more guns into the hands of law-abiding citizens because all such folks have impeccable judgment and skills when it comes to firearms. Let them buy two, three or even half a dozen every day if they'd like. It's been proven that no guns made in Virginia ever harmed anyone, right?
Good Christians out there packing. It does warm the heart. Not to worry about the Sixth Commandment or "As ye sow, so shall ye reap."
We'll learn someday, I guess, or die trying.
