Tragedies point to the necessity of self-defense
There have been four horrific occurrences in the past few weeks that almost everyone is aware of: Adam Lanza and the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, Newtown, Conn.; William Spengler of Webster, N.Y., who ambushed responding firefighters; New York subway deaths; and gang rape in India. Three of those incidents have a common denominator: very sick, mentally-disturbed individuals.
Two incidents had the element of firearms; two did not. New York subway deaths and gang rape in India were not firearms-related. The subway deaths were caused by two individuals being deliberately pushed into the path of approaching commuter trains. The term “gang rape” is self-explanatory.
The hand-ringing angst that prevails in society because of those incidents involving firearms is misplaced. If guns are to be blamed for the Newtown and Webster travesties, then the subway train is at fault in New York.
