Here we go again — gun control, gun restrictions, some want an all-out gun ban. No current or proposed law would have stopped the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. Criminals will continue to acquire guns unless the world rids itself of guns and the machinery and know-how to make them.
Gun laws do not deter gun violence from criminals. Only law-abiding, responsible citizens will follow the rule of law. So it's the honest citizen that has no means to defend himself or herself. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunter rights or people who want to target shoot. The Second Amendment was written to give rights and freedoms of arming the people with equal or superior arms in the event a government of tyranny would turn on its own people. A modern-day example is Syria.
Now, out of many emotional reactions and just plain ignorance, some people want to restrict, regulate or just ban some or all guns. If people want real change on gun control, then submit a petition to Congress to amend the Second Amendment.
Never miss a local story.
