I just don’t understand this gun issue. I keep hearing proponents of guns saying the government wants to take away their right to arm themselves under the 2nd amendment of the Constitution, over and over and over again.
I don’t want that and almost everyone I talk to doesn’t want that. The President’s 23 point proposal for gun relations and Delaware’s Governor say nothing about taking away the right to protect a persons rights or to take away the right to hunt, shoot or defend their homes.
I just don’t want some jackass to come into my home, place of worship, or any public place and shoot everyone in sight. Am I being selfish to want me and my loved ones protected from Rambo coming in with ammo wrapped around their arm firing umpteen rounds of ammo per second?
Why is the NRA scaring the heck out of people falsely putting the fear of GOD in people stating if everyone doesn’t have the right to own an assault weapon they will be wiped out when just the opposite is happening, or that everyone regardless of mental backgrounds needs the right to own a gun, when most mass killings are from people with mental illness?
Is the scare tactics for money? I have heard the NRA membership is gaining thousands of new members daily since the killing of school children. What is the reason for being against any kind of compromise for better gun regulations? I know we will never solve the problem, but can we at least attempt to help?
Or am I missing something here?
