Answers to the violence?
I am a gun owner and among other things believe that children accidentally shooting themselves/others are due to the whole "put them out of reach philosophy". our daughter knew by age 5 exactly what a gun could do and that it wasn't a toy. she had loaded weapons around her all her life but never wanted to play with them, she knew they were tools with deadly consequences. I also believe in the 2nd amendment but I am looking for ideas on causes/how to stop this kind of tragedy. not interested in knee jerk responses like God!! god was still in the classroom when Whitman did his killing. not interested in unthinking responses like Libs! I'm interested in thinking people's ideas. I do believe that some guns need to be restricted. when a guns only purpose is to kill as many people as possible in a short period of time, I don't think our founders would have included them in the 2nd amendment. I also think that part of it is our culture. when guns were common children were trained and boys wanted desperately to be considered responsible and grown up. now we have 20 year olds referred to as "kids" I don't have any answers right now, just a lot of questions.
