Viewpoint: More gun control laws not the answer

(Continued)

No, my friends, more gun laws will not improve the diminished social conscience, poor parenting or the criminal justice system. I pray that our leaders have the wisdom and vision to distinguish the real core of the problem and not be blinded by the smoke screen that liberal gun control activists have thrown up to obscure 40 years of moral and social decline that is the root cause of the problem. Any politician, religious or academic leader who does not understand these facts are in the wrong job and must be history illiterate. I suggest that you review the demise of the greatest civilizations of record, Greece and Rome. More recently, France and Russia. It took only 10 years to destroy 400 years of French civilization. It may be well to remember the motto of the minutemen — “The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance.”
