"Guns And The Right To Bear Arms"

Guns and gun ownership are not the problem. To those who are blaming an inanimate object for the loss of life in last week's school shooting, it's time to get real. The REAL problem is our society's endless obsession with violence in the media; the glorification of death and violence in pop-culture; and the rapidly eroding respect for human life throughout our general society.

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed on December 15, 1791. For 221 years, American's have had the protected right to possess a firearm, and to use that firearm for traditionally lawful purposes. There is nothing wrong with guns, they are just an object. The problem at hand stems from the use of those guns by people who do not use them appropriately.

How about we focus on the problem, and stop trying to put a band-aid on the result of that problem.
