Responsible gun ownership

Splashed across CNN this morning is yet another shooting, this time in Elkhart, IN at a local grocery store.


(CNN) — A gunman killed two women inside an Indiana grocery store Wednesday night before police rushed to the scene and gunned him down.

The tragic scene played out in a sprawling grocery store in Elkhart, Indiana.

Officers were called to the scene just after 10 p.m. and found an armed man in the store, according to Indiana State Police Trooper Brooks Shirk. The man also fired at officers.

I am all for responsible gun ownership.  I advocate hunter’s rights to be able to help pare down the deer population, home protection, and of course gun competition.  Why certain individuals feel using a gun to “resolve” their issues is beyond my comprehension.  There’s definitely some mental conflict going on. I know we all can reach breaking points either from unemployment, failed relationships, death, ill health (none of us are immune) however, those types of issues or any really does not give anyone the right to go out into society and vent their anger in such an explosive manner.

With the Roswell, NM shooting then another theater shooting (over texting) makes me wonder what exactly is happening to my country.
