This latest mass shooting in Charleston makes me feel I should say or do something. It is so sad. So senseless.
I don't normally get political on my blog but I feel like I need to publicly say something. Right now I am embarrassed and disgusted by the country I live in. I'm so sick of hearing of innocent people being killed because almost anyone can get a gun. Often the mentally ill, teenagers or young adults. Is this what freedom means? Free to kill people attending bible study? The continued racism. The police shootings. Everything seems to be getting worse. Something needs to be done to change this.
I grew up in a family where the men hunted and fished. There were several guns in our home. I believe in the right to have guns for hunting and personal protection but I don't think that means we should not have greater gun control.
I thought this article about how other countries view us was interesting. It kind of makes me want to move.
