Our Children Lives vs. Guns? The Choice is Clear

Basically, we've made it clear that the life of our children is the price to pay to own guns without any reasonable regulation. As well as we made it clear that the feelings and opinions of the victims who survived those carnages one way or the other don't matter...

Yes, that's what we live for and we should stop being cowards but own that decision firmly and unequivocally so that we can move forward (or rather backward in that case). 

Now about those claims about mental health, racial differences, and all that jazz... Here are a few numbers and studies to help to understand what the Gun problem is possible and is not about (surely)!

What Explains U.S. Mass Shootings? International Comparisons Suggest an Answer

Worldwide, Mr. Lankford found, a country's rate of gun ownership correlated with the odds it would experience a mass shooting. This relationship held even when he excluded the United States, indicating that it could not be explained by some other factor particular to his home country.

A Cute Scoter Couple...

πŸ¦‰ Today's EwA Nature Circle was a success in that we had a wonderful day on our shores, and we got to observe many beautiful bird species: surf scoters, buffleheads, cormorants, common loons and so much more...
But no we did not get to spot this winter snowy owl resident. Sorry, they don't sit around waiting for us to catch a glimpse of them but rather simply do as they please and that's the way we like it! One year we made 4 trips in bitter cold before being granted to spot 2 gorgeous ones (a male, and a female or juvenile in 2 different locations)!
Well then, trying again will be on our calendar for the next snowy owl nature circle, then! (end of Feb most likely). Who's in? ☺️
