I remember our son finding ways to take his legos and transforming them into guns and using his voice to pattern sound into ra-tat-tat, if our pediatrician had asked us about guns, I wouldn’t have cared, we didn’t have any in the house, but that is neither here nor there. We have serious issues in our nation when it comes to gun violence and shying away from confrontation with the N.R.A and the Second Amendment activists is wrong. We each have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but I think that life triumphs the so called right to a gun. Our framers of the constitution lived in different times when the states needed militias, we didn’t quite have a federal army. Moreover the technology had nothing to do with what we have today. If present day gun owners were forced to pack their gun powder and jam it down the barrel of their musket each time they drew fire, I would say that let the laws stand as they are, sadly that is not the case. Most gun safety proponents only ask for comprehensive background checks, eliminating all the loopholes available to gun shows and online gun purchases, limits on the size of magazines and clips, these are common sense regulations. I don’t see how any of these are onerous, why would anyone be in such a rush to purchase a weapon that has lethal potential?
