Guns Don’t Kill People or Do They?

There is a HUGE debate throughout our land about the 2nd Amendment, the right to bear arms, and the danger of guns. Whenever there is a shooting in a mall, movie theater, school, or somewhere else, the first thing many anti-gun people say is…”get rid of guns”, “guns kill people”, on and on.

Anyway, I know the purpose of my site is to present heartwarming and motivational stories,etc., but this little story about gun control, in my opinion, is a humorous little note that Mr. Donald K. Martin crafted for a local newspaper. In my humble opinion, the main idea of this story is SO true!

——————-

Yesterday, I placed my shotgun on the front porch, gave it six shells, and noticing it had no legs, placed it in a wheelchair to help it get around.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mailman delivered my mail, the boy across the street cleaned up my yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped by the STOP sign near my house.

After 10 hours, I checked on the shotgun. It had not rolled outside and it had not killed anyone in spite of many opportunities that had been presented.

Can you imagine how surprised I was, with all the hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people? Either the killing is by people misusing guns or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world.

So, now I am off to check my spoons, because I hear that they make people fat.

Great stuff…

  1. I don’t think gun kills people. It’s just a tool. People kill people. If someone is into killing another person, he/she would use any tool at his/hers disposal, not necessarily a gun.
