There is something terribly wrong in a world where people feel like they have the absolute right to walk inside a church, a movie theater, a concert..or anywhere..and kill people.
That's exactly what happened Sunday morning. As churchgoers clutched Bibles, prayed, worshiped God and pronounced their faith, a gunman walked inside and, with a big Texas-size gun, murdered more than 20 people in cold blood.
No one knows why he did it. It doesn't matter why he did it. Knowing why may help to wrap your mind around things, but ultimately, "why" is not a problem solver, resurrecter or bandage. It doesn't heal the hurt. It simply adds to the coffin of carnage that, once and for all, needs to be laid to rest when a solution is reached on what to do about guns, or people with guns.
As the smoking guns cool from the mass murders committed with them in this country, what will we do and who will we blame? The guns? The people with guns? The government?
