CONSIDER THIS: Another Tragedy; Now what?

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

Once again we are dealing with a terrible tragedy with a mass shooting. Why does this continue to happen? And how can these people have such disregard for human life?

It is sad. It is heartbreaking. It is confusing. It is frustrating. We’re once again left with the same question: How can we prevent this from happening again?

I certainly don’t have the answers. But it’s obvious that whatever we are doing isn’t working.

There have been suggestions, but very little action. Will better mental health care and earlier treatment make a difference? Will an improved background check system help? Should we impose a gun waiting period? Should we outlaw assault rifles? So far, we’ve done practically nothing.

Consider This:

I believe in the constitution, it is the best legislation ever written.

I believe in the right to bear arms. But when it comes to this I am pragmatic and a realist. Until we address this epidemic and take action to try, we should all be prepared for the next breaking news report about a mass murder and pray that it’s not our family who was killed.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting a different result. That saying certainly applies when you consider our efforts to take action to stop these tragedies.
