Gun control laws do work.

I don’t normally speak out about my views on gun control, but the most recent shooting in the US just has me wondering why the US government can’t enforce tougher gun laws.  Surely, the public has the right to be able to go and enjoy a simple outing like a trip to the movies without the threat of being shot and killed.  Gun control laws work.  They have worked here in Australia since the Port Arthur massacre; a tragedy that rocked the nation to its core, and led to the changing of laws in gun ownership and the gun buy back scheme.  In this video, by John Oliver, who investigates the reason for the lack of better governing of the laws in owning and storing of guns as well as why there aren’t enough stringent back ground checks on those that wish to purchase them.  It shows quite clearly just how crazy the situation is.  People should not have to arm themselves just to go out and spend the day with family and friends.    ~RB~

And now for something a little different….

Hey Guys!  Razorback here.

New look blog today.  After playing around with some ideas, I finally settled on a new header and a new profile!  Yes, I am still the girl from the bush, but with my love of art, words and music – I felt the need for a change.  You know what they say, a change is as good as a holiday.

 

 

Have a great day!

Do you have a Muse?

 

I know when I am writing, I love to listen to music to help me get inspired with a scene or a character.  Be it a combat scene with something dark and ominous, or say a romantic ballad for one of my lovey dovey scenes.  In the movie Xanadu, the muses were the daughters of Zeus and this song in a way is inspiring.  One of my writer groups asked if anyone was alive (due to a few not posting.)  I posted up this song and announced proudly that I was definitely alive.
