People kill people

TempletonSeptember 20, 2013 

As expected and previously written, all the naysayers have come out of the hole and have demanded new and more laws against owning and possessing guns. Let me say again: Guns do not kill people, rocks do not kill people, knives do not kill people, poisons do not kill people, automobiles do not kill people, bicycles do not kill people, swimming pools do not kill people, etc., etc., etc. People using any of the above and many more things kill people.

Yes, what happened in Washington, D.C., was terrible, but had those who came in contact with the shooter done their human job of treating him and/or stopping him from doing what he may do instead of trying to be politically correct, well, we do not know what would have been.
