About four years ago we had some vibrant discussions about whether Obama would move to ban guns. One member vigorously defended Obama and said he would not ban guns. Well he was right to a certain degree. Obama did not move to ban guns in his first term, but it looks likes Obama will move to ban guns in his second term.
We all must work to preserve and protect our 2nd amendment from unconstitutional laws. To do this, we must be vigilant, strategic and sensible. People want a discussion on how to stop murders and we should be at the table. Let's focus on how do we keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill people and criminals without restricting the rights of law abiding citizens.
Think about it, there is mounting evidence that violent movies and video games are contributing to the violence in youth. Do the anti-gunners want to restrict the 1st amendment? Do they want to require background checks on people who want to see movies or use video games?
We have to work togethe to stem the rise of violence in our country but taking guns out of my hands leaving me less able to protect my family is not the answer.
We can't just complain on here. We must be active and work to protect our freedoms.
