My thoughts are with Parkland, Florida. The mass shooting is sickening and stomach knots. It is getting too old. It is everywhere. It is time to make a change! I never had been a supporter of Second Amendment. Did you realize something wrong with the amendment itself?
A Well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
It is the most confusing language for people to understand this amendment. It is often misinterpreted. Did it say guns? Handguns? What is Arms? It means that people could build bombs, carry AK-47, high assault rifles, anything. So, the politicians in Congress who are members or supporters of National Rifle Association (NRA) want to be the arms of the killing machine. It is the most powerful lobbying in the world. Remember, Charlton Heston, former NRA president’s shameful quote: “I have only have five words for you: From my cold, dead hands!”
While he was saying that in 2000, the mass shootings from 2000 to 2018 in America: 239 school shootings, 438 people were shot, 138 were killed in cold, dead hands. Oh, NRA-LAND! There is very good article to read by New York Times: After Sandy Hook, More Than 400 People Have Been Shot in Over 200 School Shootings. by Jugal K. Patel. The link will be shown below.
I have five words for NRA. From my compassion, writing hands, to support gun control and get rid all of weapons. Have some heart for a change! End the cold, dead hands! The bullets needs to be controlled!
