In the last couple of years, I have changed my perspective slightly about guns and gun control, although with another area shooting under our belt, it’s hard for me not to wonder if my bleeding heart mentality was so far off the mark. It’s unfortunate that our area of Virginia is in the news again for more shootings. They’re still on the hunt for whoever is responsible, and have closed all the local schools and have the nearby small town (between Charlottesville and Mom’s house) on a lock down. It’s a relief that everyone is alive, but the truly unnerving part is the fear of crazies shooting at cars on a major highway especially one with such a rural proximity. Here’s to everyone’s safety and to keeping guns in the hands of people that are sane and educated about how to manage that kind of power, if at all.
