Your "Best Before" Date
7/27/2012 3:39:00 AM
It’s Friday, time to hear your comments on the Colorado shootings from one week ago. Lil blames the number of hours young people spend on mass killing video games. Robert thinks we should pay more attention to the clues that someone is about to go off the rails. Mr. John says had he been carrying a concealed weapon in that theatre, he would not have hesitated to take out the shooter. Paul says he’d feel safer walking into a theatre where everyone had a gun than where only one did. David says it’s too bad we hear more about the unsafe uses of firearms than about the safe uses. Richard is afraid of stricter gun laws which will mean only the bad guys have guns. Doug says concealed weapons do more than arm citizens, they put fear and doubt into the hearts of would-be criminals. Wayne points out the loss of life at Dawson college was minimized because armed police intervened. Polytech, Virginia Tech and the theatre in Aurora had much higher victim counts because the shooter didn't stop until he decided to. He aks, who do you want deciding your fate, an assailant or a responsible armed individual? Perhaps, like many, you would prefer to take responsibility for your own life. Bob says look at Switzerland with a high gun rate and a low crime rate. Switzerland, he says, has no standing army. Young people are conscripted, taught to use a gun, and can keep it at home if they want. Others point out Switzerland has a lot less violence than the US to begin with. And Joy says the best plan is just to live each day as if it was your last, because none of us know our “best before” date. Have a great, safe, week-end.
