Highland News

We are having so many issues in the USA today that is dividing us and causing us to lose sight of the principles upon which this great nation was founded. We are the greatest nation on earth, but we are turning on one another because we each have our own agendas. The Second Amendment was written for that time. It was written 233 years ago to guarantee the right to defend themselves and provide game for their families to eat. Those men were not prophets who could see the carnage that takes place today in our homes, our churches, our schools, our grocery stores, etc. I am sure they would be shocked at where the Second Amendment has led us. No one needs a military weapon in their home or in their possession at all. I am not against gun possession, but for the love of God, let's put our children's safety first. Let's feel safe in our churches where we are also at risk of gun violence. No one's gun matters more than an innocent person's life.
