_42156214_beards_ap416.jpgYesterday, another tragedy hit very close to home as a gunman brutally executed several young girls at an Amish school before turning the gun on himself. I grew up in York County which is right next door to Lancaster County. I would often go into Lancaster County and pass the horse and buggy wagons that the Amish community uses to travel to get to various places. The killer, Charles Carl Roberts IV had on him a 9mm pistol, a shotgun and a bolt-action rifle with more than 600 rounds of ammunition. Why does an average American citizen need 600 rounds of ammunition for? If he was living in Baghdad, I could understand the sense of feeling and being in an unsafe environment. Nonetheless, you say it’s because we are entitled to do so by the second amendment in the constitution. I say just as Bush is taking away other civil liberties there should be more gun control laws here in America. In any case, I believe the gun control issue is only a small portion of this particular case that happen in Lancaster County. What are your thoughts on this issue?

Come back tomorrow as I continue with part 3 of my series titled “U.S. Crime: Violence in American” by discussing and proposing ways in which crimes could be alleviated in America.
