Star, It would also be noteworthy to point out that most of these crazed shootings involved the mentally ill, but they are not added to the list that is used in background checks. The existing measures that we already have in place are not utilized or enforced, but Democrats want to create new laws that scoop up law abiding citizens. Talk of gun owners registering their guns has been discussed. I say there is never a reason for gun owners to ever register or be placed on any government list. There can be only one logical reason or purpose for doing so, gun confiscation.

Love this quote, and agree with it.
Self-defense is a natural right. Whatever the government does to prevent guns from falling into the hands of dangerous people, it has no right whatsoever to disarm law-abiding citizens, nor has it any right to ask why a law-abiding citizen wants a weapon.

By the same token, any government action that presumes the guilt of ordinary citizens in any way constitutes an assault on their natural rights.

Difficulty in getting change in our country is an ongoing source of frustration. Particularly when we have huge problems facing us as we do today.

But the founders knew what they were doing setting up the checks and balances of our constitutional republic. The delicate arrangement we call freedom should never submit with ease to a charismatic demagogue or to an emotion filled crisis.

The current push for gun control is case and point. It is at a time like this that we should be grateful that changing our laws is hard to do.

Every normal and decent American wants to...
