When I first heard about the shooting at Newtown, my heart didn't just sink, it fell straight to the ground. I was watching the news anchors discuss it time and time again, and all I could think was, didn't any of those teachers have guns? I read about the teacher who died to save her whole class, but if she also had a gun wouldn't a lot more people be alive right now?
The fact is that we don't want to think about a right course of action. We are too shocked and upset that someone could be so monstrous. But we must step up and take charge. If we don't, things will only get worse.
All it would have taken for toss lives to be saved is for someone to have had a gun on them! The best course of action then is to protect our 2nd amendment rights. We will be left without defense otherwise. Please consider not the present, but the future of our country! We are the people, we make our nation what it is- and no one can take those rights from us.
