how safe is america

How safe is America?

Despite horrific shooting crimes that breaks out
in USA , it must be said, that America is not a violent 
country. In most small towns and bigger ones too, 
it is possible to walk down your street in peace. 
Therefore it must be made clear, before we hunker
down in the potato cellar, that the atrocity we have 
seen is an aberration and not a norm.
It is only a year ago when a crazed Norwegian went 
around killing 66 children at a summer camp. 
If you want a gun it is available to get wherever you live.
Yes, gun control is vital, not only for America, which 
notwithstanding the horror we feel, still a safe country.

    Yes I live in the land of the free and am forever grateful god landed me here. The board of ed here is opening a mothballed elementary school in a neighboring town so the kids can return to school whenever. How can those little ones go back at all? love, Kathy
