I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the topic of gun control. I read constantly on Facebook about how people “aren’t going to let Obama take their guns.” I would like to point them to the bill itself, and have them read it in full (if they can) so that they will fully understand that he, or Congress for that matter, aren’t trying to take away your guns or keep you from buying a shotgun to protect your home, or even for your recreation. No, he wants to make it harder for the people who are more inclined to use guns for violence to get them.He wants to extend background checks to gun shows and the internet so that people who know that they can’t purchase a gun from a store, due to mental illness or a criminal background, from getting them on the internet. I know that this bill won’t stop the underground gun sales, but it will at least make things a little more difficult.
Okay, I am off my soap box.
