Topic on the Morning News: Gun Control
First, no one wants your guns if you're a responsible gun owner. What's needed is for getting a gun to be at least as hard as getting a driver's license. Maybe a test to make sure you know how to fire a gun? Written and practical?
I've never touched a gun. Do you want me to go buy one and start playing with it without instruction? How many people get a gun without any clue as to proper gun safety? I don't want to take your gun, I want to make sure you're not a moron when it comes to gun safety. If you have to have one, then educate yourself. For your safety, the safety of your family, your neighbors and everyone around you.
Background checks? If there's nothing in your background then don't worry. If there is, maybe there's a reason you shouldn't own a gun. Do you want someone with mental problems, previous assault charges, or a history of violence waving a gun around in your neighborhood? Around your family?
I support the right to bare arms. I just think it should be done responsibly. Take a class, learn basic gun safety by a qualified instructor and know what you're doing before you get that gun. The life these gun laws save may be your own.
