Stop the gun insanity


It is time we stop this gun madness. We need to revisit the 18th century Second Amendment. We will hear from the NRA that people, not guns, kill people, but let’s be serious: Guns make it much easier for people to kill people. I would venture to say that many killed by guns would still be alive today, if the killer didn’t have access to a gun. This goes beyond just gun control; we need to also address the culture of violence including movies and video games.

This should not be the Wild Wild West again. This is the 21st Century! Let’s not put the interests of the gun manufacturing industry and the NRA ahead of the majority of the population.
