And teachers at school doing their jobs to guide, educate, shape and encourage our precious national treasure.
The time has come, and it's long overdue, for serious action to control the distribution of weapons in our nation.
There should be no argument whatsoever about outlawing automatic assault weapons completely.
Over 40% of the weapons sold in the U. S. today are distributed from Internet websites that require no registration or qualification process.
Have we completely lost our minds?
Is this what the framers of our constitution meant by the Second Amendment?
No, it is not!
Things have degenerated to the point that a plausible suggestion would be to legalize drugs and outlaw weapons. Such dual action would likely drive the level of violence down so far in this nation that we actually might find a better way to live and a safer place to raise our children.
There is no sensible argument remaining today for the purchase, marketing, manufacture or ownership of automatic assault weapons.
