In an attempt to do something quickly, the president is planning to trample our 2nd Ammendment rights by using his power of executive order to push "feel good" measures which have no ability to control despicable crimes as happened in Connecticut and will negatively impact millions of our neighbors, shooters and sportsmen and women.
He believes that more laws favoring stronger gun control (as in his home town of Chicago, the murder capital of the country, who has the strongest gun control in the nation), will reduce crime and the atrocities experienced in December. Factually, many individual felonies were violated that day and many doubt that thirty more laws to break would have made this assaliant reconsider.
Recognizing many will say that it's wrong, I believe this country needs to add all records of mental illness to the FBI-NICS database, which will assist in eliminating the sales of weapons to those who now can just lie on the Form 4473 filled out during the purchase of a firearm as they know that those records are not searchable.
It's reported the president is having his vice-president talk to gun groups to "gather information". Would you not love to be a fly on that wall?
Remember, as some politicians and press attack the NRA, they are not attacking a foreign force, a faceless group out for their own self interests, they are attacking your neighbors, your doctors, policemen and women, firemen, clerks, grocery store workers, carpenters, and all others who are the NRA. We're not "faceless", YOU KNOW US! We band together to bring common sense to the discussion of our 2nd Ammendment.
If you, as I, believe our government will use this incident to to turn our country into Chicago, raise "taxes" on firearms and ammunition by making Semi-Auto firearms fall iunder the National Firerms Act creating a $200.00 tax stamp for each Semi-Auto AR platform existing and manufactured, we need to do something. Only law abiding citizens will register their weapons for the NFA paying millions of dollars to the government while those who commit these heinous crimes remain unaffected.
Call your representatives now! Let them know that you will support no laws that will affect you, or your law abiding neighbors ability to afford the shooting sports while doing nothing but generate money for the government and give a free pass to the criminals.
I'm just sayin..........
