One caveman turned to another and said, "Rocks don't kill people, people kill people!" We have watched the development of weapons over the centuries. Because of the reality of evil in our world, weapons have become necessary.

Hollywood Westerns, detective shows and video games continue this trend.

We fear the national debt for our grandchildren, but I fear more the armed camp our nation is becoming.
