It would be perfect if nobody had weapons. It would be perfect if nobody attacked anybody else. It would be perfect if peace reigned forever and ever and we all stood around expressing our love for one another. Wouldn’t it be wonderful?
We would even sing songs about it all. Hey hang on a minute! Didn’t someone imagine such a world and didn’t we all sing along with him?
Ironically, poor John Lennon was shot to death and we all grieved for him. His song fell on deaf ears,
Some of us believed that it was the fault of the gun in the murderer’s hands. If we could only take away all the guns then we would all be safe.
Wishful thinking and deluded, in my opinion.
Alas, when I look around at the world I seriously doubt that this is ever going to happen. Yes, it’s possible to take away the guns from the moral people, but the evil ones, the crazy ones, the determined ones will always find a way to find weapons and threaten those of us who mean no harm.
It’s the way of the world and always will be, I’m afraid.
Even if we all sincerely promised to disarm and signed agreements in the U.N (lol) with one another could we in all honesty trust those who want to destroy our way of life? Could we believe them when they claim to have disarmed?
Are we really that naive?
