100 Words, June 19, 2015- Something on guns.

The answer to gun violence is NOT more guns. Life in the Old West became easier when they began to control guns. Civilized countries around the world limit guns, and their violence rate is much, much lower than the rate in this country.

On a larger scale, this goes for our involvement around the world. Remember Viet-Nam? Increasing fire power (troops) sent to that country didn’t solve the problem, it just escalated it, a stupidity we are engaging in, again.

Compared to other countries around the world, America is fairly young. Wisdom needs age.  Right now, America’s just a teenager.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
