Political Cartoon: “One Nation Under-Armed” By Kaveh Adel Iranian American Cartoonist
In America we are armed to the teeth with guns.
But any want more guns to deter violence. Automatic ones.
As a humanist I can not accept that. We invented these guns so we can protect ourselves against tyranny. But in a way we are committing tyranny on own humanity.
How many bullets will it take to satisfy our thrill, whether it is shooting at an inanimate target (blowing it into oblivion) or an animal we hunt. or the body of a six year old child?
Are we truly One nation, Under-armed?
Common sense often is blurred as we hold onto something we perceive has more value than what is more obvious. Unless we lose someone so dear, so close to us that the blurred curtain is lifted. But then it maybe too late. One cannot recover a lost smile from a 6 year old and what she must have felt when would have been kissed for the first time.
I sure hope Mr. LaPierre from the NRA would utter words more with his heart than his teeth.
My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved one as a result of guns.
