I truly want to know, When will enough be Enough?
When will the Republican Party step up and instead of offering prayers and sympathies make and pass effective common sense legislation on the ownership of guns? If people want so very much to own their guns then they need to OWN their guns. There needs to be mandatory licensing of all firearms in our country If you need to be licensed and insured to own and drive a car then you should have to take the same responsibility in owning a gun. I also support an all out ban, Yes I said BAN on all military style assault weapons and collection of and reimbursement for all existing assault weapons. I call them weapons because that is precisely what they are.
I served in the military and have carried both an M16 Riffle and an M60 Machine gun. There is no good reason for any private citizen to own or carry an assault weapon. These weapons were made for one reason and one reason alone, to Kill people. They are not useful in hunting as the ammunition used in them tears up whatever it hits making meat from an animal unusable. And if they tell you they need them in case the government comes for their guns they are delusional that they think they can stand up to a platoon of soldiers and make a stand like Rambo.
Guns give people a false sense of security, you are far more likely to be killed with your own weapon in a robbery. you are far more likely to have one of your kids shoot someone showing off to his friends the guns his parents own.
With so very many people being killed every day in our nation we need to step up and hole our legislators accountable. The only people they believe they are accountable to presently are the NRA and the Russian government apparently. And yes I believe that the NRA and the Russian government are linked and have deep ties and are using the politicians of our country to destroy our democratic republic. Why did I go there? Because its part of the problem, its why the republicans in congress won’t stand up and say, “Enough is Enough!”
