“9 kids a day are too many . . . our goal is 0!”
In the United States proclaims the Women Against Gun Violence website, 40% of households with children have guns. The site also states that 9 children per day are killed with guns.
Given the Sandy Hook tragedy, these revelational numbers take on a greater amplification in terms of the need to do something. The question is what?
To some the answer is simple . . . ban assault weapons and enforce existing gun control laws including closing the gun show loophole.
For others such as teachers in Texas and Ohio, the answer is to sign-up for gun training programs with the intention to bear arms during school hours as a means of protecting children should another Sandy Hook situation arise. Or as Gerald Valentino, co-founder of the Buckeye Firearms Association put it “Any teacher who is licensed and chooses to be armed should be able to be armed.”
It's good to talk.
