‘Guns don’t kill people, people kill people’

April 16, 2014

Last week, a teenager stabbed 20 people at a Murrysville, Pennsylvania, school. As I write, four of them remain in critical condition, but compared to what we’ve seen, this sounds like “good news.”

We don’t have to imagine what might have happened if that kid had been armed with an AK-47. That scenario has become all too familiar. At this point, we have to be thankful for the smallest of blessings.

“Guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” which is why we need to keep guns out of their hands.
