Welcome to Common Gunsense

I hope this blog will provoke some thoughtful reflection about the issue of guns and gun violence. I am passionate about the issue and would love to change some misperceptions and the culture of gun violence in America by sharing with readers words, photos, videos and clips from articles to promote common sense about gun issues. Many of you will agree with me- some will not. I am only one person but one among many who think it's time to do something about this national problem. The views expressed by me in this blog do not represent any group with which I am associated but are rather my own personal opinions and thoughts.

Guns, babies and other gun absurdities

When babies shoot other babies, don't we have a problem? You wouldn't know it by the constant stream of excuses coming from the gun lobby and gun rights extremists. Their fear is of hurricanes, ISIS, a robber lurking around every corner or a rapist. What the rest of us fear is law abiding gun owners and their guns. How can you explain a 3 year old killing a one year old brother with a gun bought most likely for self defense by parents who have been pushed to fear for their lives. Instead, a life is lost. How else can you explain a young mother carrying a gun around inside of a diaper bag while shopping. You know where this is going don't you? The gun discharged when the diaper bag dropped sending a bullet flying. Luckily no one was injured or we would be reading about yet another stupid and dangerous- and yes avoidable- gunshot injury or death.

This and other absurd rhetoric by gun lobby enthusiasts and supporters are in my latest blog post at my new blogging platform.  There is absolutely no common sense to our gun policies, our gun culture and to our neglect to protect our babies and children from devastating gun violence.
