Thoughts On The Shooting In Las Vegas

It happened again, another shooting of innocent civilians in America. Last night, in Las Vegas, a man shot into a crowd during a concert killing at least 59 people and injuring over 500.

When will this end? When will we put politics aside and put lives over guns?

I’m all for the 2nd Amendment, but we need a common sense approach to deal with the unnecessary loss of life that has become all too common place in this country over the last few decades.

It’s like beating a dead horse. Except that this horse is so dead that it is glue, holding up a macaroni shell on some kid’s art project that is hanging on their refrigerator at home. Unfortunately, the dead horse must continue to be beaten.

While respecting the 2nd Amendment, we must find a way to compromise. If our leaders do not enact reasonable and rational gun control laws, then we will continue to see innocent civilians killed or injured for no good reason.

I would say pray for Las Vegas, but prayer has gotten us nowhere. We need action, from our government. We need it now before another massacre becomes front page news.
