I am not ashamed. This gun violence comes from violent people - and violence comes from poverty. Poverty of wealth, poverty of health, and poverty of spirit. The more poverty we have, the more violence we will have - it has nothing to do with guns - it has to do with violence.
I am sick and tired of politicians and the president trying to keep people on their knees - 'we should be ashamed of ourselves' says Mr. Obama. No we should not Mr. President - we have done nothing wrong and have nothing to be ashamed of.
Do not be ashamed of yourself. Do not be ashamed of being able to protect yourself. Do not allow these people who write and execute un-just laws with victimless crimes to keep you on your knees.
The only people that more gun laws will protect are criminals and the un-just use of force by the government. Most all of the weapons purchased in these recent incidents were purchased "legally" - how did those laws stop violent people from doing violent things? They didn't!
Be strong, be proud, and be free. And let's do something about the actual cause of violence - poverty of wealth, poverty of health, and poverty of spirit.
