Magic yes; gun violence no
I accompanied my young elementary school granddaughter to the Northern Gila County Fair on Kids’ Day Friday. Not long after our school bus arrived, we were herded into a large tent to watch a magic show and a Wild West gun shootout re-enactment.
The magic show was wonderful, but I was simply appalled that anyone would think that in this day of gun violence and mass killings in schools, it would be a good idea for youngsters to watch and hear the popping of guns pointed at another human being.
Shame on the people who put on these violent types of re-enactments and shame on the Northern Gila County Fair staff who invited them.
