Oh my aching heart…is this what the second amendment intended?

Jesus God Almighty.  The news is unfolding right now about the dozens of small children gunned down in their Connecticut school room and I’m swinging wildly between anger and tears.  It was only a couple of days ago that innocent people were randomly gunned down in an Oregon mall and it seems like every week there’s another headline like this.

What have we come to?

I cannot believe that this is what our Founders intended when they crafted the second amendment.  I just can’t.  Please God help those governing us to find some of the wisdom and vision that guided our forefathers instead of the anger, suspicion, and stubbornness that blinds them today.  Our founding fathers never would have just sat on their thumbs and watched as our tiny, beautiful children and mothers and neighbors and friends were gunned down in cold blood like this, over and over and over again.

Year after year after year.

Surely we can find some way to bear guns wisely instead of just bear guns.

Please…something has to change.
