I like the 2nd amendment. And it could have saved many lives on April 20, 1999. And on April 16, 2007. Imagine if Rachel Scott had a gun in her purse when Eric Harris ran in. Or if Matthew Ketcher had one hidden inside his little brown lunch bag.
I am so incredibly tired of hearing that guns are the problem in America. We have them and it's too late. It's too late. And it's a problem that we have so many of them.
But, let us use those guns when it's necessary. Make it so that kids who always follow the rules, don't have to lose their lives for it.
About 8 to 10% of teenagers are depressed. Diverting the public's allegiance from protecting these teens through suicide prevention, to focusing on gun control is so irresponsible.
Better psychiatry could have saved his life. And Grandma too.
Or was it inevitable?
We'll never really know.
But a lack of gun control was not the culprit.
