My son and I planned on watching the new Batman movie, but he is now afraid to go watch the movie with me in light of the recent Colorado shooting.
With the recent fires and now the shootings going on in Colorado … one has to wonder what to make of it.
Should theaters install metal detectors in order for the public and children to feel safe?
Maybe so. I know that small business owners have a right to do with what they wish regarding how to best conduct their own business, but it would certainly help moms and children feel more at ease.
Soon we will hear from the far right wingers and the far leftists regarding this matter as it will soon be politicized, but in the meantime, and as a mom I will look for the first theater company who installs metal detectors if that even unfolds.
We all know how powerful the (Republican-leaning) National Rifle Association is with regard to demonizing laws that provide more gun control…and to be honest, I used to be a member of the NRA. I decided not to support their outfit any longer due to one of their spokespersons via Ted Nugent who made violent remarks against Americans and members of the Democratic Party.
Fed up with the Republican and Democratic Party leadership, Americans are looking at how to be united and the old way regarding the two-party major system is not working.
I’m very glad President Obama called for prayers of the victims, and our thoughts are with them.
May our Creator be with the families who lost loved ones.
(Now moms like me will try to help my son overcome his fear….)
