I've been worn down. It's everywhere on the news, on social network sites on blogs. The gun owners rights are being threatened. You win. I want me a gun.
So, I looked into it and boy am I outraged!
I wanted to buy a grenade launcher and a scud missile. It seems they have some laws that stipulate I, a private citizen can not own a grenade launcher and a scud missile.
HOW DARE YOU! How dare the government refuse my right to own a grenade launcher. My 2nd amendment right says I have the right to protect myself. Give me a scud please.
This argument sounds silly doesn't it? Yeah, about as silly as the argument from the NRA stating that if our gun laws are changed to outlaw the sale of semi automatic weapons with high capacity clips, then that means we are infringing on the rights of gun owners.
Hey, no it doesn't.
All that is is a reasonable change in our laws that might save some people from being killed in the future.
The NRA chief is expected to say today, when he participates in the Senate hearings on gun control, "We need to look at a full range of mental health issues....."
He will say, "We need to better enforce the gun laws that are already in place."
Another part of this overhaul should be a reasonable compromise by gun owners, when President Obama and others want to tweek the current laws to be consistent with the times in which we live.
Quit being so freekin paranoid, the government likes the 2nd amendment, we don't want your guns. The government has no plans to storm your living room as you are watching your 46 inch HD flat screen TV.
Relax, and make some reasonable changes.
As I write this, there is a gunmen loose in Phoenix Arizona after shooting 3 people in a business complex.
