OPINION

And still, little will change

By The Philadelphia Inquirer

This article was published May 27, 2018 at 1:48 a.m.

School massacres have become so frequent that there was a noticeable absence of the strong reactions expected after 10 students and adults were killed by a 17-year-old shooter last in Santa Fe, Texas. Even newspaper editorial pages that typically rage after such tragedies were mostly silent, as if they too are tired of repeating the same calls for reform to no avail. Celebrities who in an earlier time might not speak their mind have become more outspoken in the age of Twitter.

As politicians, pastors, and the public are learning....offering solace does not help as much as offering solutions.
As folks dealing with illness and disease understand so well - providing a cure is more desirable than providing comfort.
You don't pray over problems.....you do what you can to fix them.

The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is 73 million Millennials with a vote.

We are counting on the youth of America to solve the problem which we have given them.

Mr. Tidmore and 23cal are correct. Praying doesn’t do a darn thing except be an empty, vapid excuse to placate one’s responsibility to act by wishing someone else would act. Vote politicians into office who will act. School must be a sanctuary, not a mortuary. The only two entities that “need” an assault weapon is, Police SWAT and Military.

Little will change because gun grabbers have no desire to solve anything and only care about promoting a political narrative. The proof is found partly in thus article. The battle isn't about gun reform. The battle is to stop/lessen violent criminal behavior. More evidence is found in their refusal to consider ideas that don't infringe on the 2A. And 23cal seconds my political narrative motion.

Hey WGT - Did Rosa Parks need to sit at the front of the bus? It's a Bill of Rights, moron, not a Bill of Needs.

Pack here you go. "Little will change because gun nuts have no desire to solve anything and only care about promoting a political narrative." There, fixed it for you as another person on these boards likes to say.
