Another communists Democrat run State. They are destroying themselves and are too stupid to understand.
he called “common-sense legislation regarding gun safety.”
People who keep using this term could use a frying pan to the face.
At least is sound like HB3200 is gone. It was a berserk anti “assulat rifle” farce.
The gun test requires 100 rounds to complete. They might as well mandate a pistol course at Gunsite Academy.
More easy pickins for the criminal element.
Seems like this proposed legislation is solving problems that don’t exist.
