Response to Fridays Child (Reply #5)

6. Take a look at the news, not just here but all over the world.

We're well past the point of no return on guns. With more than 300 million of them out there, in the hands of everyone including suburban divorcees in tiny New England towns, I can't see any way humanly possible to stop them. They've won, and we'll all continue to suffer for it. "Evil" has always been part of the equation, long before biblical parables told of brothers killing brothers. There are people who have no moral or social compass, and the masses have been so deluded for so long that it's just a matter of personal individual survival. Call me fatalistic or cynical, but less than 5 miles from my house, 27 people died yesterday at the hands of an ill-adjusted post-adolescent who also shot his mother in the face as she slept. I'm not feeling terribly optimistic right now.
