The Second Amendment gives American citizens the right to possess firearms for purposes of national security and also for their personal protection. It is well known that we must always be on our guard against a pervasive criminal element, and a readily available handgun is our best protection. Handguns also come in handy when a nasty domestic situation arises:
A gunman’s “relatively short” marriage and his alleged history of crime and drug use preceded Monday’s killing and suicide at a California grade school where three people died, according to police.
Cedric Anderson, of Riverside, California, walked into a special-needs classroom at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino and opened fire on his estranged wife, Karen Elaine Smith, “without saying anything,” before turning the gun himself, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said.
Two young students were also shot. One, eight years old, died.
Y’all be careful out there. and keep your powder dry.
