We must have a real discussion in this country about finding ways to stop these senseless shootings.
Good so far...
I believe a combination of improved access to mental health services, restrictions on certain weapons intended for warfare, and elimination of the gun show loophole are sensible steps that can protect our communities and particularly, our children.
Argh! Ya lost me there Senator. Mental health is an issue. The "weapons intended for warfare" is just lib-speak for so-called "assault weapons." NFW Senator. Re-read the Bill of Rights. It is called the Bill of Rights not the Bill of Needs. I don't have to be in warfare or prove some need for a weapon. I have the right to own it, period.
Senator, trotting out the nonexistent "gun show loophole" meme doesn't earn you any points outside your libtard circles.
If you were serious about protecting our children Senator, you'd introduce or back legislation to end the criminally idiotic and insane "gun free zones" which in fact are never really gun free.
...we want to keep the wrong weapons out the hands of the wrong people...
There are definitely people who should not be allowed to possess weapons. However, law abiding citizens such as myself are not on that list anywhere. Any attempt to trample my rights is unconstitutional.
I believe we can have a civil discussion that addresses these issues and as the recommendations by the President's task force are considered in Congress, we will ensure that xxxx's voices are heard.
My voice, Senator, says "HELL NO!" to any form of "gun control" that restricts my ability as a law abiding citizen to purchase firearms and firearms accessories. That means no "assault weapons" ban, no "high capacity" magazine bans. No restrictions on my giving/selling my firearms to my family members. No registration. No home inspections. That's my voice Senator, represent me or start looking for another job.
The intention of the 2nd Amendment was specifically about safeguarding the People's right to keep and bear "weapons intended for warfare" thus the first clause.
