We need to pray for the families of the victims of this terrible crime. My heart (and mind) goes out to them. This is obviously tragic and is proof of a sin-ridden world.
As expected the national news media has taken advantage of this, yet another tragic event, to call for gun control. If someone were to go into a school and slash and kill students, would they call for a ban on all sharp instruments? Why not just ban bullets and knives, etc, etc?
When people participate in this kind of senseless violence it’s not the weapon which is to blame. It’s the people themselves. If we look deeper we could blame the sadistic society that fosters this kind of violence in the first place. By banning guns we take a means of self defense away from those who need it and place an extra advantage into the hands of criminals who are not going to obey the laws anyway.
The source of evil in this world today is sin and the answer is repentance, not gun control.
