Had gun, didn’t help

He was a former soldier, carried a gun even when walking his dog and had every reason to believe his life was in danger.  And yet Kaufman County DA Mike McLelland and his wife were gunned down in their Forney, TX, home a few days ago.

For those tragically disillusioned Americans who believe guns are going to protect them, this should be a wake-up call.  Killers, rapists and burglars do not knock on the front door and announce their intentions.  Many of them plan and are shrewd enough to carry out their missions.

The answer is to begin a program to bring guns under control in this country.  And a good place to start is background checks.  It is not the ultimate answer to our sick gun culture but like the war on tobacco it is a start in a long battle.
