My views on gun control have changed drastically. The Sandy Hook tragedy and the growing trend of school shootings; brutally senseless killings of children- have opened my eyes. I have children myself. If I were in a situation where a gunman was facing my children to do them harm; I would prefer having a gun and the knowledge to handle a weapon in a crisis situation. The playing field has changed in the world as of 2013. It's been going to hell in a hand basket since 9/11. Some people are sick and there is no other cure besides Jesus, jail or death. Don't always be so quick to blame this on mental illness. That behavior is not always mental illness. Some people are just sick, deranged, delusion, irrational, and unreasonable. After Sandy Hook our family acquired a hand gun. I spent the previous summer learning how to shoot with a retired police officer and close family member. I believe God speaks to us in our heart-our seat of motivation. God's spirit can cause us to act, move, or change our thinking. My thinking on guns has definitely changed. Protect and education yourself. God bless.
