Im sure by now you have listened to and read the stories about the Orlando shooting at a night club. They keep calling it an act of terror.... Im not saying that it wasn't....since reports say he pledged his allegiance to ISIS...but I feel this should first and foremost be called an act of hatred! Why in this day and age do we have so much hatred happening???? It makes no sense to me...why can we not just love one another....stop judging...stop being so critical of everyone...just LOVE one another...regardless if you believe in the same things...we are all human beings!!!
When tragic things like this happen we automatically jump on the we need "Gun Control " band wagon....Im not saying that things dont need to be changed...but I think the change comes in the form of things like get rid of automatic weapons....there is absolutely no reason why anyone needs to own one of these...I believe in the right for us to have guns to hunt with and guns to protect ourself with....but there is no reasonable excuse for anyone needing to own an assault rifle or any automatic weapon of any kind.
Second, I feel that if for any reason a person is on the FBI watch list....they should not be able to pass a back ground check to purchase a gun. This makes no sense to me. There's a reason they questioned him more than once in the last few years. And whatever that reason was...should have been enough to keep him from being passing a back ground check.
I also am tired of the "gunman" getting any kind of notoriety...I dont think we should give these people recognition. I dont think we should continually keep saying their name over and over again til its burned into our brains. We tend to remember them and forget the victims. Because we continually hear about the bad guy and not enough about the people who lost their life. So I plead to the media please stop doing this.
As we once again find ourselves trying to over come another tragedy I pray that we can just join together...show these haters that LOVE always overcomes HATE....and as a nation we will stand together in LOVE!!!
