Hi Internet friends,
I’m sorry I was away for so long. My wife thought it was best to stay away from writing these sorts of things online because of online dark hackers, but this past week has had me steaming.
As I’m sure y’all also feel this way but every time I turn on my television and see that there’s been another shooting, Lord, I just feel so bad and sad. I don’t know why this week feels so much worse, maybe because the shooting happened inside a House of God. But it got me thinking since I also know there was another terrorist in New York City the week before. I don’t see the difference between both men. Both were acts of extreme violence against innocent people. Both men were terrorists plane and simple.
I’ve been thinking about this long and hard and praying even harder. Something ain’t right here. I grew up around guns, my daddy grew up around guns and his daddy and I bet his daddy going back as far as the Powers name has been around. I believe in the second amendment and I don’t think the government should give a shit about what I do. Pardon my French. But something isn’t right here. And I’m not saying to ban guns but what I am saying is that the gun sellers have a duty to make sure that guns don’t end up in the hands of terrorists like in Texas or Las Vegas earlier.
I just wish people lived more in Christ’s example. The world would be a better place if we stopped thinking what’s best for us and started thinking what’s best for our neighbors. If we’re going to call brown guys who drive cars into crowds of people terrorists, we best damn sure call men who shoot disciples of Jesus Christ in churches terrorists too.
