On Vegas and personal freedom

We live in a great country. A country based on of all things, freedom. But why is it, when there is a terrible annomoly such as the Vegas shooting there are people that are not only willing, but who actually  call for the taking away of our precious freedoms. Without knowing anything, just minutes after this attack, there were people and politicians calling for more gun control. And just this morning I was hearing even worse, that there are some calling for hotels to institute the same level of security as the airports (which I am not sure I agree with) of searching your baggage as you enter the hotel.

How can we, as a nation that is based on freedom, simply allow such loss of freedom and dignity? A knee jerk reaction is not what is needed. What is needed? find out the 5 w’s that every jourlnalist is supposed to find. We know a couple the who, what, when and where. but at this point we do not know the why or the how. With out knowing these, how can we know what we should do, if anything, next?

What I say we do, pray for the living and the dead, help those we can, and find out all the facts we can. Let us heal the nation and those injured. Let us bury the dead and grieve. Let us find the truth about this sad event. Then once that is done we might be able to find what is needed, If anything.

Let us pray :
Almighty Father whose mercy is deep, show us your tenderness and show us the way of the light from this darkness. Please comfort all those that are suffering, and take those angels into your bosom.
In the name of the Father , the Son and the Holy Ghost
Amen
