Always someone else’s fault

Editor, 

Let’s talk about gun control. Yes, any crime is a terrible thing, especially when it affects our children. I have seven grandkids, am a veteran, including Vietnam service. If something like Sandy Hook happened to my grandkids, I would be heartbroken. Not at the gun, at the person.

This right goes deeper than enacting laws that criminals won’t follow anyway. They don’t today, why will they later? The Second Amendment is to protect ourselves and our rights from a tyrannical government. I stand firm on this protection. Obama and Holder’s “Fast and Furious” debacle is a current day example of what a government can try to do! Our own government does not follow the gun laws we currently have, yet they want to take away rights from law-abiding citizens!

Why has the U.S. been in wars of the past? Because the people in those countries could not defend themselves. Read your history about WWI, WWII, Vietnam, etc.; the list goes on. And they started by national gun registration.

Car accidents kill thousands every year; is it the car’s fault? Have we outlawed planes since the 9-11 incidents? This problem has escalated because in America we have devalued life (abortion on demand) and stopped teaching integrity and responsibility to our kids. It’s always someone else’s fault.
