The Inherent Right of all Children to a Safe Childhood

Whether in Syria, in Yemen, in Palestine, in Central African Republic, or in Newtown, Connecticut or in Parkland, Florida, or in any place where children live, they have an inherent right to a safe childhood.

To safeguard, to protect and to ensure the inherent right of all children to safety, all impediments to achieving this right should be removed. As conflict and war should end to accord childhoods back to the children of Yemen, of Syria and of many other places, in the United States (US), guns - the ease of access and availability thereof, pose the greatest threat to the inherent right of American children to life and liberty. 

Too many young lives are cut short via gun violence in America. Last week's gun-shooting massacre of 14 students and three teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida, underscore the ongoing attack against the inherent right of children to a childhood. That children can no longer feel safe in their educational institutions, clearly speaks of the gravity of the current attack upon the rights of the American people to life and liberty.

The ease of access and ready availability of guns across America have moved beyond a Second Amendment issue - of the right to bear arms, to become an infringement of the rights to life, liberty and happiness. The said United States Constitution that enabled the Second Amendment first demands as a prerequisite the duty to "insure domestic Tranquility...promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..."

While the Second Amendment is honored, it should no longer be abused to legalize the arsenals of assault and automatic weapons. A limit of consideration in scope of types of weapons is reasonable. The continuance of the broad scope of types of arms deemed legal, contradicts the right of children to a childhood and to the general welfare of the Republic to life, liberty and happiness.

Therefore, common sense new gun control laws must be demanded forthwith as a means to securing and sustaining the full rights of America's children and adults and in honoring the Constitution of the Founding Fathers to life, liberty and happiness.
