The Guns Of Hate
Fellow CD Users,
This post is not the beginning of a return to consistency in posting as I have in the past. Continue to pray for my family and me. However, your comments are expected and welcome. It's the tragedy in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, Ohio that has compelled me to say a word to the Christian Community, in general, and members of Christian Debate, in particular. I promised to check in from time to time. This event is one of those times. Christians, on any level of his journey, must not keep silent on the recent massacres and America's inhumanity to man. One must speak up and condemn hatred (quasi-Federal pogrom) and give voice to decency and a better way.
My thoughts are not to lend support to the Democrats or the Republican Party. I don't subscribe to either party. They both seem to be opposite sides of the same coin. The Democrats, on the one hand, seem to be more concern about winning. They are too afraid of losing.
On the other hand, the Republicans seem to lack morals, heart, compassion, lack of respect for the American rule of laws. In short, they are political chameleons and are too beholding to the narcissistic U. S. President Donald J. Trump, whom many, full-throated, believed to be a "White National Racist." The Republicans have lost their soul and surrendered any moral high ground, they once held.
I have resurfaced to repeat a truth spoken, in the past, in these forums. It's unfortunate, America had to experience this reality in lost lives in two places within 13 hours of each: Guns were Made To Kill! No, it's not a mental illness that kills. Guns do. I have written much on this topic in these forums. Here we go again:
Guns were made to kill: Back to the Future
You may ask again why more of the same?
Loved ones are dead, and it's not a game.
Without warning, bullets flew, piercing glass, walls, and flesh;
Rupturing backs, heads, eyes, hearts, legs, and chests.
Whether, in one or two places, the carnage is the same.
Spent shells, bloody bodies, broken bones, wounds too deep; for life, what a bloody shame?
Why so graphic, one may say;
Common sense gun laws are needed right away.
Mental illness, many politicians claim;
Ninety percent of Americans want background checks, and seventy percent wants a ban on assault rifles, bump-stocks, high caliber magazines; can politicians be justly blamed?
Who benefits from these weapons of war, anyway?
History says extreme gun owners and the NRA.
You have heard this all before;
A lack of action, America; prepare for a whole lot more.
Yesterday is today and today was yesterday, many are reluctant to believe so;
Enough is enough; commonsense gun laws would hopefully, stem the status flow. -- by CM
