A black man shoots two white journalists on live television and guns are to blame. “Let’s take away the guns.”
It is horrific to see the violence being wielded on our police officers everywhere right now. Painting targets on the backs of police merely because of their profession is not only wrong, but ignorant beyond belief. And what hypocrisy for one group to claim they are targeted because of their skin color, so they target another group because of the uniform they wear?
If the mantra is “black lives matter” does that mean that white lives don’t? Police lives don’t? What about Asians, Hispanics, gays, babies? How does one life matter over any other life?
Taking away guns does not solve anything. Gun laws do not stop bad people from getting guns any more than theft laws deter criminals from stealing.
Guns are not the problem. Cops are not the problem. Hate, apathy, ignorance are the problems.
Take away the hate and you take away the violence. Let’s kill the hate.
Where there is love there is respect for life. #AllLivesMatter
