For a few weeks now, I've tried to understand the whole "right to bare arms" and why it's so important to people. I didn't grow up around guns, never owned a gun, my parents knew nothing about guns, etc. As the dust settled on the horrific event that happened in Connecticut I was furious and made a quick statement - "we just need to outlaw the right to bare arms". Since that time, however, I have had quite a few conversations with people who own guns and then did some of my own research. I can say now that my views have changed a bit.
My wife and I sat down last night and watched the news, which we rarely do, and saw that the city of Detroit as well as many other major cities continue to have significant issues with violent crimes and senseless killings. Now that my wife and I have a daughter to protect my personal thought process is different. I now want to have a sense of comfort that we can protect her at all times. I believe safety is paramount and people should definitely take gun safety courses and obtain the appropriate licenses, but I believe if people want to own a gun to protect their homes and family, that should remain their right. In the meantime, let's try to keep it peaceful!
