America – A Violent Society – Part 2

I just posted my commentary about the United States being a violent society on August 21, six days ago.

The state of Arizona has provided more evidence of that observation. A nine year old girl accidentally killed a firing-range instructor while she was being shown how to operate an Uzi submachine gun.

 

9 year old kills with Uzi

 

It is legal to train children in the use of firearms. No laws were broken.

My question is why would you want to put guns of any kind into the hands of a nine year old child?

The answer seems to be because we can and it is our right to bear arms.

Even Anthony Scalia, the Supreme Court Justice and strong supporter of the second amendment, told Fox News that the Second Amendment “undoubtedly” permits some restrictions on firearms.

How about starting with children?

Of course the NRA tweets “7 Ways Children Can Have Fun at the Shooting Range.” This is no surprise. The NRA believes the best way to stop a killer is to be armed and ready to shoot.

Convince me this is not a violent society.
