Part 5 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.

New York Mills AT&T Store
May 27, 2010
A 79-year-old man entered an AT&T store in New York Mills, New York carrying a .357 magnum revolver in his hand and a list of employees he planned to kill in his pocket. Hearing the hand cannon go off, Donald J. Moore drew his own personal weapon and killed the gunman before he could complete his plan. One employee was wounded in the shooting.
