No, I don’t blame guns for the local school tragedy this week.

When I was in high school there were quite a few trucks in the school parking lot and they had at least a rifle in the window gun rack. Anyone at the school could have used those guns. The students got angry and irrational like many teens do but the worst thing that happened involved eggs, toilet paper or crickets (in the school’s air ducts). I grew up in a house with guns. Regardless of where my parents hid their guns, if I or any of my classmates had wanted to, we could have used the guns. We didn’t.
