A Letter to People with Guns

Dear People with Guns,
Please, please do not go into any elementary schools with your guns.  In fact, please do not go into any other schools or public places and threaten innocent people.  You see I have already buried 2 of my sons.  I try to get up every day and live in this world without them.  However, sending my 6-year-old twins to school and then hearing about a gun man in a local school does not help.

No parent should have to live in a world without their child/children so do not shoot any one.  There is no explanation that you can give to the families left behind that will justify shooting their loved one.

I am so thankful to Antoinette Tuff for reasoning with the gunman.  She told him “You don’t have to die today.” Not every one has the choice of which day they die.

So, people with guns please do not make the choice for other people.  Keep your guns to yourselves.

Thanks so much.
