1,052 mass shootings in 1,066 days: this is what America's gun crisis looks like | US news | The Guardian

Given that the definition of a 'mass shooting' is four individuals shot and/or killed by one assailant, I can't help but ask in the face of this statistic:  

'How's that 2nd amendment right working out for you Americans these days?' 

It looks decidedly like a mixed blessing from this side of the border.

  1. And just how many of the shooters legally obtained their guns? Basically the guardian is saying that because criminals use guns law abiding citizens shouldn't have the right to self defense. That sure makes sense..not.

    and why can't I log in via Facebook or something real people have other than google?

    2. The change the guns laws. Australian did it, with a conservative Prime Minister, John Howard (http://www.slate.com/blogs/crime/2012/12/16/gun_control_after_connecticut_shooting_could_australia_s_laws_provide_a.html ). I'm afraid the gun lobby in the US and the gun obsession by a large percentage of the population may make that vey difficult in the US.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
