Now Is The Time.
There’s more to ending gun violence than repeating “they deserve a vote” over and over again. The measures on this graphic must be taken. It’s that simple. Nobody’s 2nd Amendment rights are in danger here. The government is well within it’s constitutional realm to determine what types of weapons and ammo we own and use. Furthermore, the government is not stepping on our rights by dictating the terms of how we come to own guns and ammo.
Don’t take my word for it though: ask Tea Party favorite Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment as much as the next person, unless that next person happens to be Ted Nugent or Wayne Lapierre. I own a weapon for home protection, and I know how to use it. However, I don’t see the need to own a weapon that the police don’t even have access to. It’s ridiculous to own such a weapon, and I’m a firm believer that the government should ban the hell out of these types of guns, along with their insidious buddy, the hollow point bullet.
There is probably very little chance that these regulations are going to be passed. I would encourage you though, to contact your congressman or senator, and give them your opinion. If we put enough pressure on them, then maybe, just maybe we can make this happen.
