About a week ago, the NRA gave their response regarding the massacre of 20 little children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook School, in Newtown, Connecticut. Wayne LaPierre, the organizations leader, said that we should immediately place armed security guards at all schools.
Several years ago I remember landing at the International airport at Manila in the Philippine’s. As I deplaned I noticed that there were armed guards with automatic weapons everywhere that I looked. For me, it was an awfully uneasy feeling. I was so thankful that we do not have to live like that in the US.
Where will this idea of having armed guards end? Shopping malls, playgrounds, theatres, restaurants, bars, banks and beaches? I thought we formed this nation so that we could live free and without fear.
