Gun control not the answer

Posted: Friday, January 25, 2013 3:55 pm | Updated: 3:57 pm, Fri Jan 25, 2013.

While President Barack Obama wants to make sweeping changes in gun laws, local law enforcement officers aren’t convinced those changes address the root of the problem.

“Something does need to be done,” said Boaz Police Chief Terry Davis.

    And there again, I point to a parent to chose the movie or video game their child will play with. Or even give them something more constructive, as a book to read !

    Many valid thoughts from law enforcement, who are rightly concerned. Part of issue is the glorification of killing using guns. Just went to see what was showing at Boaz cinema and of the 9 posters displayed on the screen for current shows, 6 clearly show guns in some way. No "guns" don't kill, people do. But the images seem to indicate that it is an OK behavior. And no, I'm not advocating removing movies with guns. But 9 movies and 2/3 are gun oriented?! sigh Where are the uplifting family type movies??

    need a concealed carry permit if they plan to carry the weapon on their person.

    is Alabama not a open carry state?
