Will the War ever end?

And on the cover of yesterdays paper was yet another shooting. Yet another person loses their life to gun violence. For no reason at all. The civil rights groups, 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement and the National Action Network have been very busy with the headlines these days. Should I just turn the page of the newspaper and put the headline out of my mind? And yet there will be another shooting tomorrow and the day after, and the day after that and more headlines the day after that, that never ends. There seems to be calls for justice against gun violence on a daily basis now. Will the war ever end? Are these the end times? The end of days? There are a few entries in my blog about gun violence and I could easily copy the same entry over and over. An appeal to stop gun violence. An appeal to banish guns from every human being on planet earth so that we can all be equal. Everyone throw away their guns. Who is responsible for the invention of gunpowder and guns? It is the worst invention ever. Who is responsible for the flooding of humanity with guns? I am just one blogger alone in my appeal and there are many other individuals and the media who appeal for an end to gun violence. Yet it seems as if every ones cries are going unheard by whoever the powers are that be. An interesting statistic in yesterdays paper; Firearm control: Past vs Present. Why do in the United States 5.6 persons per 100,000 get murdered every year versus 1.2 in the United Kingdom where arms possession is not free? It is great that the Mayor of New York City and Mayors Against Illegal Guns address ending gun violence, yet it is discouraging to read that in response to this, gun dealers and gun shops held a gun giveaway in protest. I cannot think of any last words to write for this blog entry except to say will there ever be peace on earth? And what does this have to do with a No Police State? Have a great day.

Actually per capita Britain has a very high murder rate. The Criminals know that they are against an unarmed population, and go hog wild!!
