Support gun control

Print Article

Selecting this heading is meant to draw attention to an important discussion involving all Americans. That is, useless murders occurring in our country.

In 2014, the Guttmacher Institute reported 2500 humans were murdered per day in our country by abortion. The majority of recipients identified themselves as ‘Catholic’, ‘Protestant’ or ‘Evangelical Christian’ women. Deaths due to hospital error in that year were approximately 550 per day. Gun deaths averaging 82 per day. (The majority of these were from suicide or accidental).

If, since the violent shooters that are making the news today are male; then by today’s logic, taking guns from males would decrease the death from that means. Then, following the same line of reasoning, the deaths from abortion would be decreased by taking away abortion clinics from women. Make sense?

The violence we see, is not a gun problem. It is a cultural problem! It is the several generations of selfish adults that cherish their own happiness above training their children to know right from wrong. To recognize good from evil. To recognize the infinite value of life.

We all, who presume not having any guilt or complicity in the culture we have created, will have to give an account.

Jim Sisler, Polson
