We live in a violent society, I acknowledge this. Why do we live this way, some folks say it's been this way since the beginning of time, remember Cain and Abel? However, to me there is difference between this act and cities in America having hundreds and thousands of murders committed every year. I am not going to mention the numerous violent assaults. Why is this, we are an affluent, educated society that has embraced modernity? Yet, there is a hardcore element that has no regard for life and liberty. This faction has easy access to handguns (thanks NRA and reckless members of Congress). Yes, I am aware of the Second Amendment to the Constitution that states that in order to have a well regulated militia, Americans have a right to bear arms. There is a difference between this amendment and every Tom, Dick and Harry having access to these weapons of mass destruction. When you try to justify the rampant selling of handguns, etc., also take a look at the FBI statistics of the yearly handgun murders. If you think this is not a problem, then maybe we are not so civilized and modern at all.
