There's an old saying that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. I mention this because I think that is the mindset in Washington right now. I can honestly say that I'm not certain how I feel about this. The tragedy in Newtown was/is horrible and definitely a watershed moment that has caused this gun enthusiast to seriously reassess this long time gun enthusiasts beliefs.
Please nobody jump on my back for saying that, I'm not making any kind of political statement at all. I'm making a personal statement about my own state of mind in these very troubling times.
Edit: Sorry for the clumsy way in which I said what I said.
This is exactly how I feel as well. The death of 20 children will do funny things to you. Yes, it is emotion. But I still find myself questioning if perhaps we need to make some changes. But the key is, WHAT changes?
