    So as usual, those with no idea as to how to attack violent crime and mental illness are suggesting that law abiding citizens pay the price. Yup, just what Thomas Jefferson would have done I’m sure.

    You guys look, there are virtually no shooting deaths in the UK because they had the sense to enact strict gun laws.

    Of course, stabbing deaths are now so common that you need government ID to buy a pointy stick, and can be jailed for possession of a potato peeler, but ignore that. The end to all violence is just one more prohibition away!

    Why is it that when a criminal uses a gun for crime, said criminal is presumed innocent for trial purposes……………

    BUT, 200,000,000 gun owners who haven’t done anything are presumed, and judged, guilt

    Just enforce the gun laws that are already on the books. More than enough to put plenty of law breakers away for years.

    The Governor just doesn’t get it, every law-abiding "Gun Owner "
    understands that all the hype for new gun laws will not amount to
    a hill of beans, you ask why ??

    Crazies & Criminals don’t obey any laws, and there lies the problem.
    If the Liberals & our Governor really want to fix the so-called gun problem maybe they need to address the above.

    Our Governor is on the Liberal Bandwagon ……….. shameful.
