NEED TIME TO REFLECT
This week I am taking off just to reflect on what is happening in our country. I may tick some people off however, this is my blog and I can say what I believe.
I do believe that we as US citizens have the right to bear arms responsibly. This means if a citizen (over the age of 21) wishes to own a hunting rifle and/or a personal pistol - after an extensive background check and having it registered then that should be ok. No one's rights have been taken away. Will this stop the already purchased/stolen weapons? No! But if one is used then that person should be prosecuted to the highest degree. Gangs that go around neighborhoods shooting wildly and many times shooting innocent children in their own homes need to be put away; one by one, step by step. Other countries do not have this kind of problem. It is out of control in the United States.
There is no reason in the world that any regular citizen should need a mass destruction weapon (such as AK-15s) as is used in all of these senseless shootings. Gun laws must be changed. How many more innocent lives must we lose before we learn our lesson?
The NRA lobby buys their votes to keep these weapons on the streets. We are smarter than this. Go to the polls and vote these politicians out that take money to keep these kind of weapons legal.
