Early Friday morning at 12:38am. 12 people lost their lives. A gunman came into a movie theater in Aurora Colorado and opened fire. Killing 12, and injuring 58. Among the dead was a 6-year-old.
When I hear of events like this, I become depressed. Sad is too light of a word to state how I feel. I can’t help think, “Who would do something like this?”
Not only does this cruel man’s actions affect the family members of the dead and injured, but it affects us as a nation.
Because now that this happened, the government is going to try to come in and tell us, “See this is why we enforce gun laws.”
And that’s what they are going to try to do. They are going to try to take away those rights as well. We can’t let that happen. Think about it, if these stupid gun laws weren’t so strict and we were allowed to carry them in public- maybe something could have been prevented.
These people who pull out guns and start shooting people, are already breaking a law by carrying a gun with them in the first place. But nothing stops them when they go crazy shooting people. So why shouldn’t we (the smart and sane people) be carrying guns to prevent idiots like that from going crazy.
Ever since the beginning of civilization, there have been countless of massacres. You can’t stop evil. It is a part of human nature. I am not condoning this man’s actions. I think it is sad, evil, and wicked. I sincerely hope that he will get punished severely for his actions. But I also don’t want to see this event to be used as an excuse to take away our rights as citizens.
To the 12 people: Rest in peace. We as a people, and as a nation mourn for your loss.
