I believe you misunderstood me in that I do not want to see an all out ban on guns, but rather restrictions on gun ownership. For example, we all know people that shouldn’t own guns (at least I do anyway). We need some form of a vetting and training process prior to allowing gun ownership.

Additionally, when I mention the crazed gunman with a badge, I’m obviously not referring to every police officer out there. I do think that the process to become an officer of the law is too easy/short. I believe, again, that not enough vetting and training is done here.

I am a gun owner, I take my kids to shoot guns at the range, therefore I am training my kids to be responsible gun owners and teaching them the impact and power firearms hold. I also have family members in law enforcement as well.

At this point I feel like we are straying away from the point of my piece, which is the hypocrisy of pro-lifers. But I’m willing to continue this discussion either way.
