IF THOUGHTS and prayers or even pixie dust were real and viable solutions to the problems we face, then the world would be a far better place.
There would have been no Auschwitz, no Killing Fields, no cancer, no hurricanes that destroy property and people, no pain and no suffering. But thoughts and prayers are about as effective as pixie dust when it comes to resolving the ills of mankind, especially when it comes to the Americans and their obsession with guns.
I own a gun, a bolt-action rifle that can hold three rounds and I mention this simply as a way of letting you know that I’m familiar with and not opposed to the concept of rifles.
