Don’t take guns away


Jersey Shore

In the winter of 1919, hostilities ceased between Germany and her allies and the Allies, France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy and some others. America’s entry into the war in 1917 after three years of European destruction was the impetus to the ultimate defeat of the “great German war machine.”

One delegate, Vittorio Orlando, the Italian Prime Minister, frequently broke into fits when his demands for territory went unsatisfied. Georges Clemenceau, the French Prime Minister, called him “The Weeper.”

That was long ago.

What reminded me of the incident was our President weeping when he recalled the little children being killed by bullets. No one doubts his sincerity. We all share his grief. But letting him chop away at the Second Amendment to the Constitution is no solution to the murder problem in the United States.

Let’s take the mentally ill off the streets by reopening hospital wards that were closed because of budgetary restraints and Progressives’ complaints about human rights.

Don’t take guns away.

Put the nuts away.
