Re gun violence
What? I have a gun and it’s never yet lost its temper at anyone. Guns don’t have moods.
It’s violent people who happen to use guns to inflict pain. They also use knives and bombs. So let’s call it what it is: violent people! If we enforced the gun laws that are already on the books and greatly increased the penalties for any crime where a gun is used, we might curb some of this nonsense.
I’m fine with background checks. I had to go through that process to purchase my gun, but with HIPAA laws how do we identify those with known mental illnesses in the new proposed background checks?
Never miss a local story.
None of the new proposed gun regulations would have prevented the recent school shooter or theater shooter from getting guns. Maybe we are focusing on the wrong fix.
