It is a fact that now even the beloved, unopinionated and citizen-friendly Fireman are subjected to the threat of firearms when they come to help. This is being caused by the overall fear, anger, and distrust many citizens are coping with today because too many public servants and governing institutions which are the "foundations" of our society have betrayed the public trust.
Gun control alone is not the answer to ending the volatile society we live with now. Like trying to find a cure for all cancers when it would be much more productive to stop the abuse to the body that is causing the disease to begin with. We all must try to accept responsibility for what is causing the anger and eliminate that, then there will be fewer reasons to turn to violence in the first place.
People who are left behind, removed from the societal prosperity and forced to live with little or nothing when so many others have great wealth, comforts and acceptance will become angry and choose to make "bad decisions" which affect us all. For this reason it is important to reach out to each other and establish a society once again where every citizen has a place, presence and purpose in every community. When every person feels needed and knows their voices are heard there is always harmony.
"We the people" means all of the people, not only those with money and position, and sadly in these modern times only a very few enjoy all of the benefits guaranteed in our nations constitution. So it must be accepted by every citizen at every level of the society the responsibility to be your neighbor's keeper. Always reach out to those who have needs, so everyone knows they are not alone and all of their fellow Americans care and this will remove the reason why some people turn to firearms and other means to be "seen and heard".
It is not easy to take on such an enormous responsibility, many will take advantage of the goodwill of others, but it is worth the sacrifice if it helps the majority of those who are truly in need.
It all begins with having great love of self. Only then will you have the ability to love others. Then everyone must come together in love and acceptance of all.
Be well and safe everyone
