No, our forefathers certainly did not have this in mind when they framed the Constitution. They didn't even have weapons like we have nor do I think they ever would have imagined it. Also, it was a much different time then. They didn't have law enforcement like we do now.
The sad thing is this dude would have built a bomb if he hadn't been able to buy a gun. Look at the way he booby-trapped his apt!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am scared of guns. I was taught how to shoot a rifle when I was 6. I do not own a gun, I won't have a gun. I just don't like them. But, if you want a rifle to shoot your food (I'm fine with people hunting as long as they eat what they kill) or you feel you need a pistol in your home for personal protection, fine. The Constitution is on your side. However, I don't see any reason for anyone to have some of the very scary guns that are only meant to kill people.
Thank you to all who offered prayers and asked about Alysia. I appreciate it. Mommy never gets over being anxious and worried. I swear its gotten worse as she's gotten older!
