Enough with the Guns

2ndAmen

The second amendment is sacred.  Wait… No it’s not.

Life is sacred.  It’s that simple.

Gun laws must be amended and enforced, and gun culture in the US needs to evolve.  Gun advocates will cry foul.  Gun advocates will say the government cannot infringe on their rights to own guns.  According to the Constitution, we have a right to keep and bare arms, but the Constitution does not specify what type of guns.  I’m not an expert on guns, I’m not opposed to individuals owning them responsibly, but I know I’m not alone in my thinking knowledge that citizens should not have a right to own semi-automatic firearms.  Outside of First Responders and the Military, no one needs these weapons.

Too many innocent people: adults and children, have died needlessly due to the easy availability and accessibility of these deadly weapons.  There’s nothing to debate. It is unconscionable that existing gun laws are not enforced. Laws limiting the sale of weapons are already on the books, but they aren’t being administered.  It is a travesty that it’s easier to buy a gun than a six pack of beer in some states.  As a nation, we must insist that our lawmakers change the laws, ban assault weapons and rid them from the open market.  Follow the examples of Great Britain and Australia.  Ban the weapons, rid our society of these mass shooting tragedies.

This is not an argument about mental illness.  That’s a separate discussion.  No one, no matter what their mental health status, should be able to buy a weapon of such destruction.

Tell your Senators and Representatives you will not vote for them if they don’t support and pass new gun legislation that aims to prevent further massacres.
