The Republicans are a bunch of dimwitted, egoistic, overbearing people who believe they have to be right at all cost. They are once again on their ego trip proclaiming that Obama’s plan for gun control will not stem gun violence. Australia tried it and it worked so why not America?

The Republican’s desire to support the NRA outweighs their desire to try and save the lives of innocent children and adults. And why should they….they have never experienced that agonizing, heart-wrenching moment of looking at a dead son or daughter, knowing that they are never coming home. They don’t know what it feels like to have to bury a child or a loved one whose life has been brutally cut short because of gun violence. In fact they don’t care much about lives. They will not hesitate to send our sons and daughters off to war.

It is the constitutional right of the American people to bear arms and stronger gun laws will in no way infringe on those rights as the Republicans would have you believe. Every law abiding American citizen will continue to be able to exercise their rights to bear arms. Stronger gun laws are designed to keep guns out of the wrong hands. Doing more stringent background checks will help. We cannot continue to put guns in the hands of people with mental issues, terrorists, and people with a record of domestic violence and not expect to have repercussions.

I urge people to think clearly and vote wisely in the next election. We cannot support people who believe it is more important to support the NRA rather than to support measures to curtail gun violence. Measures to save lives must take precedence over ego and the desire to always be right.

      You are welcome. As to the issue of gun I hope you never have the problem we now have here in America. The sad part is that many Americans do not seem to understand what gun control is all about.
