What does rational Gun Control Look Like?

What would sane gun laws look like?

With the massacre of the month behind us, I’ve decided to think of what I think would be an ideal set of gun laws.  I felt this was necessary because I find myself advocating for what I think is possible to enact and that’s not anywhere close to what I would ideally like to see happen.

Gun violence

First, let me be clear. I don’t have a problem with most gun owners. I am concerned about people who feel like they need to have an arsenal. It’s not the arsenal that concerns me – it’s the reasons why they feel like they need to have an arsenal that concerns me.

Reflecting on my Father

Reflections of my father

My dad was an extraordinary man and a lot of the way I think of things is a direct result of his influence on me.

Christopher Shaw - brilliant gentle human being

My dad would not have called himself a Humanist. But he was a good and gentle man in the finest sense of the term. He was also brilliant. And that’s not just me saying that, that was the most common comment we received in condolences and memories we received from his coworkers and friends after his death.

He had a very quick wit and loved to play with words and was definitely an intellectual, which the urban dictionary defines as someone who has found something more interesting than sex and alcohol, but which actually means someone who likes to engage in deep thinking.

Bernie Sanders' Humanism

Bernie Sander’s Humanism

Bernie Sanders may not self identify as a Humanist, but he sure sounds and acts like one. no wonder my hubby is smitten with him.

Bernie Sanders Humanist

“The problems we face did not come down from the heavens. They are made, they are made by bad human decisions, and good human decisions can change them.” – Bernie Sanders.

It can happen to you

It can happen to you

Health problems can happen to you, so stop pretending you are immortal.

Fear is rarely rational

In order to live a happy and fulfilling life, you have to be alive.  Ideally, you should be healthy too as it’s hard to be happy if you aren’t healthy. It’s also hard to dedicate yourself to helping others if you don’t have the physical ability to do so.

Black Lives Matter - Again

Black Lives Matter – Again

I have no idea why this is a controversial issue among Humanists. But it apparently is.

Create the change that is needed - Humanism

The summer 2015 issue of The Humanist Magazine was on whether black lives matter to Humanists. http://thehumanist.com/ - The conclusion of the magazine was yes, of course they do. For me also the answer is yes of course. If Humanism is silent on the main civil rights issue of our time, then it has no claim to ethics at all.

Unfortunately, some “humanists” think Humanism is only about not being religious and that we should restrict ourselves to that topic. I disagree. If you are only interested in being an atheist, then you are an atheist, not a Humanist. Humanism is about the applied ethics of compassion! Ours is not a religious ethic, but it is a compassionate ethic and that is what defines us a Humanists!  Failure to act on our compassion is a failure of our ethics. Humanism is about human agency. It’s about doing something to fix the problems of the world and to make the world better, for all humans and not just for a subset of them.
