My coworker was talking to me about how she is completely supportive of the recently passed gun laws in Colorado, limiting magazines and more thorough background checks.  It still just surprises me how it is that people think that passing laws like this is going to protect people, when criminals don’t care about the laws at all as we all have read all over the place but yet people choose to lie to themselves but we are all entitled to our opinions.

Let’s look at Chicago, the only people that can legally carry and own a gun are police officers, as stated on a documentary from our public TV station a few months ago, Chicago has one of the highest gun crime rates of any other city.  I think if people are allowed to have guns, it leaves people wondering just who has a gun or not but when criminals figure that most law abiding citizens won’t have guns, they know they are safe to commit crimes without interference of the average citizen. 



  1. It is almost as if many of these folks are living in a different reality. I do what I can educate people but there are some that are so rooted in their beliefs and base everything off what they hear on the news. Pretty frustrating.

  2. I completely understand your frustration, I think one of my biggest pet peeves are people who are fanatics and are not open to at least listen. I can respect a person who will at least, sincerely, listen to what I have to say and I don't mean politely listening but actually hearing it before making up their mind for good.

    I think as long as I keep trying, I can at least feel I made an effort :)
