On Wednesday, I wrote about a tragic story where a two-year-old child took his own life after reportedly mistaking his mother’s firearm for a squirt gun. It’s an awful story, but it wasn’t one that came up in my regular search of the news.
No, this is one my wife stumbled upon and sent me.
She saw it on her Facebook feed where a friend of hers shared it, along with her own opinions about it. Among other things, the friend raged about how a gun should “look like a weapon” and not be colored pink or blue or anything else. Of course, I told my wife I disagreed and why, but later it struck me about how that friend’s comments are based in the same place as a lot of legislation.
