A dream exchange

If wishes could help in this moment of grief, I would wish that voluntarily and anonymously those of us who are no longer comfortable owning assault weapons could turn them into our local police station or state trooper barracks.

I would wish that the officers would be prepared to receive them without question and respond to the giver with "thank you."

I would wish that this exchange of an assault weapon for a "thank you" be thought of as a Christmas gift to America, one freely given, a gesture in support of the dreams of our children and the memories of our first responders.

Holiday gifts don't change the world, but they are meant to show love. I would wish that this year we have the chance to show our love for our children, for those who teach and protect them, for our neighbors and family members by saying this assault weapon need no longer be borne.
