With all due respect, I beg you to take action toward our country’s poor state of affairs regarding the lack of gun control in America.
☼The USA NEEDS to please stop the idiocy and START GUN CONTROL as a protective measure for citizens. The seemingly challenged wonders in congress can simply follow what was done by lawmakers in Australia as a guide… It took the Port Arthur slaughter by ONE gunman in Tasmania for Australians to put strict gun control in place…as have many other CIVILIZED NATIONS.. . .
HOW MANY GUNMAN?. . .
HOW MANY DEATHS ARE REQUIRED BEFORE THE U.S. “GETS IT”???????
….Not a math question guys, only a common sense answer of logic & heart is required.
I am ashamed & embarrassed that the USA is so slow to step up to the plate for citizens on this key issue.
Out of curiosity, I attended a gun show once with my husband in Harrisonburg VA. Both of us felt it was a creepy crowd there with a strange, unhealthy vibe. My husband was not easily freaked out either. He was an extreme sports, fearless person at 6-ft5-in tall that was ex-Australian army with horrific military experience of conflicts in Bosnia. He whole-heartedly supports gun control, as do I.
As a hunter with a varied gun collection, Dad always taught us how to use/handle guns properly. Interestingly, he said “the only purpose for a handgun is to kill people, cause it’s not used to hunt animals.”
At a minimum, handguns need to be banned. Perhaps hunters can keep licensed shotguns, rifles, & muzzle loaders. Personally, I feel ALL should be banned but…. a compromise to ban handguns only would be a great move in the right direction.
☾BTW, I grew up in the country, so I know how hunters ‘love’ their guns… Nevertheless, feel you can ‘love’ them just as much at at a legal gun club & target shoot to your heart’s content there… Where guns are controlled & locked down l…. as I understand is done in Australia….
But you miss the chase, you say?… Then get yourself a foxhound, beagle, or whatever hound dog you prefer…and listen to the chase to your heart’s content, without a gun in tow. If you feel the need for a placebo to help wean yourself, then take along a walking stick & camera.
Need to feed your family, you say?…
Ha, you’re not Daniel Boone & this is no longer frontier land….
You get all your food from the grocery store like I do…except for an occasional deer, turkey, or rabbit, perhaps… And that’s not exactly helping curb that pesky deer population, now is it? There are varmint traps, & other methods to take care of pesky critter situations.
I cannot think of a single reason why a person cannot accept & live with gun control in America….
Let’s see, how did that go…. “home of the brave,…home of the free”……
The current reality translation of that verse is “home of the INSECURE,
home of the IMPRISONED”….
INSECURE SO-CALLED MEN THAT ARE ESSENTIALLY PARANOID WIMPS,
alternate translation: “clinging onto a gun to feel like a big man”… sorry, but
stupid is very strong amongst lawmakers & citizens opposing gun control….
as a result, innocents are dying all over the country at the hands of licensed/unlicensed guns….to achieve what?….
to support your stupidity & insecure feel good fake manliness!!!!
Good citizens are imprisoned in their own homes for long hours as they watch a swat chase thru their city…
seems to me it’s time everyone realized once and for all….
the WILD WEST IS OVER!!!
Contrary to how some people feel, manliness and freedom have nothing to do with the size of your gun, how many guns you own, or your marksmanship skills.
Freedom is not about the ‘right to bear arms’ like a madman.
Freedom is about the right to live in a society free from fear that you or a loved one will be shot to death by a madman in a random killing spree.
Freedom should include the right to legal gun club access for gun owners.
I often wonder how many innocent lives might have been saved at VA Tech, Sandy Hook, etc…..
if only we’d taken action to put in place a robust gun control system…
but to my dismay,
for whatever reason,
lawmakers have not gotten their act together to protect a person”s freedom to stay alive, to enjoy life…
ya know what, I also hope….
I HOPE lawmakers take action NOW to regulate guns for all our sakes…
Without gun control, we are just a negligent nation playing a sick game of ‘Russian roulette’ with innocent lives….
Aren’t the lives of our nation’s children worth anything to you?
This is one citizen that would LOVE to see immediate action by lawmakers to pass strict gun control legislation.
Mr. President, with all due respect, that sure would be an awesome legacy to have associated with your name, don’t you agree!?
I cannot ordinarily predict the future, but in this case it’s safe to say, both you & I know… that we cannot keep living in the current environment & expect the issue to ‘go away’ of its own accord…..
Without strict gun control in place… sadly, we all are united in this prediction…
senseless murder will happen again….
and again… ad nauseum,
to innocent souls in the USA.
