I am getting tired of NRA and people predicting the end of the world if Congress passes a gun control measure.
I can't imagine why any rational person would object to a three-day waiting period and/or a background check. Are you in a big hurry, or do you have something to hide? Nor can I believe that these items infringe on one's right to bear arms. Infringe means to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another person.
Maybe just enforce the laws that we have. The other side of the coin: many of the weapons illegally used are stolen and not under control of the real owner.
As for assault rifles, they are made for one reason and one reason only; to kill people! They certainly have no use in the field for hunting. The same can be said for the 30 round clip.
Never miss a local story.
