  •  I wept. (12+ / 0-)

    When I started Veterans against gun violence...it was meant to be taken just that way.   Not all veterans are opposed to owning guns.   I just know many are plagued and traumatized by  hearing their sound, or too many memories flood their souls when they hear of someone shot.  

    My husband has medals for sharpshooting.  He lives with the pain of how he earned them.   He screams in the night or does not sleep when that part of his life creeps into his soul.  No we do not possess a firearm.  We do not tell everyone that owning a firearm is bad.  We know it is not right or healthy emotionally for this family.  I never have owned them.   I have no desire to ever own one.   My husband got rid of his guns years ago.  He believes in the 2nd amendment.  I really can't say that I do.   I just know if one has one ...they need to keep them away from children.   Your story hit home this week.  My son's friend
    youngster was playing at a neighbor's.  Some other youngster was drawing ...a pistol...They buried his friend's son this week.  The friend of my son, the Father did not own weapons.

    Your pain and  love came through each heartfelt word.

    We the People have to make a difference and the Change.....Just do it ! Be part of helping us build a veteran community online. United Veterans of America
