From time to time Xavier will post these stories that make you think. Because of his profession – “Xavier is a Registered Nurse who specialized in complex wound care,” he has a way with words and is a very good writer. Here is a clip from a recent post.
A gun is not a magic talisman against evil. A gun is not some mystical device that saves lives any more than it is an evil device that takes lives. A gun is an inanimate object. A tool with which we can protect ourselves. A life preserver. A gun might not have saved Brittany Zimmerman on April 2, but with the proper training and effective ammunition, it would have given her a fighting chance. If only she had a gun.
If you’d like to know why Xavier would make such a statement, go read the post. I think you’ll agree with him.
