Guns don't add up
February 22, 2018
Add the numbers up: 58, 14, 13, 6, 27, 2012.
Did you quickly get the answer? The numbers: Fifty-eight dead in Las Vegas last fall; 14 in Parkland, Florida last week; 13 at Columbine High School in 1999 and six years since 27 students and teachers were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
What does that equal? More of the same. No change. The status quo equals more carnage. Assault rifles are an equal opportunity destroyer. They will take lives at a concert or in a classroom. People with these weapons kill students and party goers, males and females, coaches and counselors.
