As a child growing up in the '60s, I remember a teacher walking into our third-grade class with tears in her eyes, informing our teacher and her students that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated.
Some years later, I got a chance to go see Robert Kennedy at the old Amtrak station in Merced give a political speech for his presidency. In 1968, Martin Luther King, a great man, is assassinated, then Robert Kennedy joins the fold. They now belong to history.
I've been in favor of gun control before I was eligible to vote. I keep hearing guns don't kill people, people kill people, but why would anyone need a military-style assault rifle. Our laws and amendments need to be tweaked.
