The pull of a trigger and a beautiful, irreplaceable life is lost; the pull of a trigger and countless lives are saved.
It’s all in perspective — guns, that is.
If the shooter is a masked man after your life, then guns become an abomination to society, and people want all kinds of new laws in order to remove them from civil life.
If the shooter is a man defending his property or his people, then he is viewed as a hero.
Never miss a local story.
The problem is that guns, when in the wrong, are the cause of tragedy everywhere, despite the fact that it’s the man holding the gun that is at fault.
The question now is are guns truly a problem, or is it just the people?
Are more gun laws really necessary, or is better gun education in safety and proper use necessary?
