Recently Garen Wintemute, director of the UC Davis Violence Prevention Research Program, was quoted saying: “I think most people don’t want to be in a society where people have arms everywhere, particularly since there is no evidence that being armed is a benefit.”
Well, possibly to the surprise of some, I agree with Mr. Wintemute – that is, I agree with half his statement.
I too, as most Americans certainly would, prefer a country where no one has the need or even desire to arm themselves – beyond weapons for hunting. That would be wonderful and there is a place that has achieved this level of civility, peace and love for one another.
It’s called Heaven and its inhabitants are angels.
