With the recent uptick in anti gun rhetoric, those that support anti gunners have come out in full force claiming pro gunners love our guns more than children’s lives. They appear to believe we don’t care about saving lives. This sentiment drives me NUTS!
I am so TIRED of this statement being reiterated over and over and over again. What makes them think we are so callous to the tragedy and heartbreak of innocents being killed? Why do they feel that as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, and sisters, our hearts don’t break. Do they really think we don’t shed tears for those that have to bury their children because of the horrible actions of an unstable criminal? I don’t know about you but when I hear of these shootings that happen, my heart breaks. I cry and hold my son a little tighter that night.
I am all for them exercising their first amendment right as it is their right to do so. What I don’t agree with is their assault on gun owners. You don’t really hear the pro gun side wish death on the anti’s children, like the anti’s do. While yes, we like our guns and our right to bear them, we LOVE our families, and value life more so.
That sentiment is why we all fight so hard to keep that right. We want to be able to protect our life, the lives of our loved ones and even those we don’t know. We value life! The anti gunners have to realize that we all want the same thing, safety, and do share many of the same feelings. When they realize that, then progress can be made to find a real solution to the issue of violence and mass killings in our places of learning, fun, and worship.
ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
