I served in the Canadian army, I was a sniper.
I don't like guns, not because there is anything worng with guns per say, they are a tool, but because with them, life becomes cheap and killing becomes too "clean".
The father od this child and the operator of the booth will have to live with the consequences of that day for the rest of their lives.
Somewhere along the way, life became less sacred and guns began to be viewed as something other than what they are - a tool to kill another living creature.
We speak of rights and speak of protection and defense and speak of many things except what happens when a gun is actually used VS another human being.
A life is taken, a life that can never be given back.
