June Forsyth Kenagy Posted over 2 years ago Has the time come for the U.S Second Amendment to be repealed or amended? Just for the record, I am completely against having armed guards in all our schools, or even any of them, even in the inner cities. This sends the wrong message. We are already a far too-violent society, so what we need is not only less guns (fund some sort of redemption program to bring in the ones already out there), but far less violent movies, ban all violent video games where kids sit and practice how to blow people away, and fund a lot more mental health programs for teens in schools and mental health clinics or institutions. Most of all, our leaders have to stop hating Muslims and firing drone missiles which scatter the body parts of Pakistani children all over their compounds... the leaders must lead the way to peace. Start talking with the "enemy" like that graphic designer in Israel who Facebooked a design of him and his daughter reading "I (heart) Iran, we would never bomb you"... when we realize the "enemy" is a human being like ourselves who loves his/her children and parents, etc... then we can curb violence. Switzerland has a higher per-capita rate of gun ownership, but no mass shootings, because they have a society that has traditionally valued non-violence, pacifism, and neutrality in all armed conflicts. We have to become such a society, valuing "Love your enemy" more than we treasure guns. After all, is your pride in gun ownership anyway even close to as important, as vital, as heart-wrenching, as a parent's pride and love for his/her child?
