SOUND SCARILY FAMILIAR?
FROM My Sci-Fi Novel XPERIMENT…
“There is clear evidence that we’ve allowed a machine of mayhem to be built in our midst – a machine that encourages people to take the law in their own hands. This machine tells a weak mind they have great power with a weapon in their hand. The law doesn’t determine whether the individual holding it has the intelligence, discretion or emotional control before using it as a solution. The voices behind this machine say the law gives them the freedom to assassinate what they personally find unacceptable. It’s a machine that has unleashed hell on earth one trigger-finger at a time. Every individual that wields a weapon becomes a part, a cog in this vast machine that says killing is their legal right. By allowing this we haven’t assured the safety of humanity but guaranteed it must fear being its perpetual victim, forever at the mercy of impetuous anger or indifferent prejudice.”
