I Am Confused?

I am confused? And there seems to be nowhere safe to turn. Why are people going off on people in a Walmart or a populated entertainment event? The report stated that there have been more mass shootings than actual days in this fiscal year.

August 4, 2019 marks the 216 day of this year and as of the date, 251 mass shooting. That’s over a shooting a day. Kind of a scary thought.

I don’t know about you but it scares the shit out of me. I see nothing wrong with guns. What does bother me are guns getting into the hands of the wrong people. And as an added point the types of guns so easily accessible. You tell me, what would be the point in Joe citizen needing an assault rifle? Hunting and fishing? For target practice? Or to murder several people with a single clip? I vote on the latter.

I am not saying we need to violate the second amendment right to bear arms. What I am saying is that there must be a strict background checks on all gun sales.

To do nothing, as is the current concession is not acceptable. It’s gone way past time to do something. There has been every kind of excuse and none of them holds up in the wake of dead bodies lying in the streets or in a Walmart or movie theater or school yard. Money from NRA lobbyist should not influence legislative action necessary to control gun sales.

To be clear and I’ve said it before, I don’t want to see guns taken away, but there must be strict screening of gun sales and a ban on assault weapons of all kinds. That might not solve the whole problem, but it’s a start and will slow down a out of control situation. If we can save one life with stricter rules it will be worth the inconvenience it causes for the majority of gun buyers.
