Bang Bang!

Constance Edwards Scopelitis's avatar Constance Edwards Scopelitis

Gunplay has been a universal expression of natural human aggression. Children for all time, all over the world have created weapons out of fingers, wooden sticks, and "found objects" daily. The gleeful sound of gunplay, paintball, or video games has turned more menacing in a world where children now kill other children in public schools with real guns. Because of generalized fear and understandable anxiety, toy guns are now mistaken as real weapons in Walmart or in Cleveland public parks. The future is frightening yet we must hold out HOPE for belief in our citizenry and in our young people to use common sense and find common ground in the future of gun policy reform.
