Enough is enough. It's time to bring back the common sense gun laws that we had in this country before buffoons stripped them bare. The simple background checks, waiting periods, assault rifle bans and other laws that made us safer from those who would use guns to harm us are needed now more than ever. It's ridiculous that we even have to repeat history to demand them back.
"Guns don't kill people, people do!" BULL. If it were true, we'd still want to make it difficult for the people who kill to get guns, now, wouldn't we? But what else is an assault weapon made for other than killing? That argument is completely invalid.
I grew up around guns. My dad taught me to shoot when I was 10. I've allowed my own daughter to take classes from the Department of Conservation, which is where people should learn about guns. There is absolutely no reason for an individual to own assault weapons, and no reason to ask that people receive a background check prior to purchasing firearms.
Please call your senators and representatives today. Tell them to enact common sense gun laws or you'll elect someone else who will.
