The Solution

When tragedies happen

we often think, "it didn't happen to me,

So it doesn't matter as much"

we think we are a safe distance from the violence. 

That's what they want us to think. 

we are to not listen to the warnings, 

let our guard down, 

and let them in.

and once they get the chance, they will take it.

and unforunatly they will usually win.

What we need to realize is that this is real. 

It may not be happening to you,

but it as real and bright as the sun in the sky. 

In order to stop this, we need to solve the problems. 

and more restrictions will not help. 

we need to remember that good people follw restrictions.

The good people who wouldn't cause violence.

so if we add more restrictions, 

those law abiders will not have protection. 

however, for those who don't follow the law, 

yes it is harder for them to acquire weapons, 

but who has more artillary now? 

the law abiders or the law breakers?

In order for something to truly work, 

we should not apply restrictions, 

rather apply licenses. 

More tests and licenses in order to keep more people safe. 

If we restrict, we are dooming weapons to the black market only.

so lets find a solution to help the right people. 

not those who want to cause harm.
