Part 7 of 12
As Oma is a Southern Californian, the massacre in San Bernardino last week hit close to home. It is so sad but a reality of everyday life in America. However, Oma maintains the philosophy that guns do not kill people . . . . . . . people kill people. Put a gun in the middle of the room and if no one touches it, no want gets hurt.
Oma will not shy away from teaching her grandchildren about weapons. Emphasis must be place on helping our younger generation learn how to deal with others and to remain aware of their surroundings. They are the only one who can keep themselves safe.
Rather than write about the two shooters who I have chosen to leave nameless; Oma wishes to honor the fourteen who died and twenty-one injured by re-posting a Controversial Times article written by Hunter Roosevelt on June 23, 2015 about the heros were seldom hear about; people who use their guns to stop violence.

Freewill Baptist Church
March 25, 2012
Aaron Guyton was inside the recreation building of his grandfather’s church when he saw the shooter, a member of the congregation, pulling a shotgun from his vehicle.
Guyton leapt into action, locking the doors to the church where services were going on. The shooter kicked in the door and pointed the shotgun at Rev. Henry Guyton and several parishioners. Drawing his concealed handgun, the younger Guyton held the shooter at gunpoint while two members of the church took him to the ground. Rev. Guyton then took the shotgun from his hand.
