Still on the subject of guns, I was shocked to hear that an 11 month old baby has been given a firearms licence in the U.S. Apparently the child’s father applied for the licence over the internet and it was granted with no questions asked. The baby’s granddad has since bought him a shotgun for when he’s older. It’s a sad and frightening sign of the times when somebody can get hold of a gun so easily and just goes to show how stupid the U.S. gun laws are. It’s no wonder you hear of so many shooting incidents. It’s such a trigger-happy society we live in now with guns too easily available, particularly in the U.S. The pro gun lobby there believes it’s every citizen’s right to carry a gun. They don’t stop to consider what happens when they fall into the hands of some crazy person.
Also violence is everywhere around us, on tv, in the movies, on the net and on computer games, helping to shape youngsters into disturbed and unbalanced individuals. Is it any wonder we live in an increasingly violent and menacing society?
