Innocence Lost. The state of Texas allows worshipers to bring guns into our most sacred of institutions. It does not matter whether you agree or disagree with this law. It represents a sad state of where we are in our country at this time. This children’s toy is from a bygone era. A time when these types of products represented all that was good. Simple, happy, and imaginative in scope. However, it holds a fearsome weapon representing an unapologetic and desensitized mindset showing how far we must go to build a more civil society.
