Sen. Chuck Schumer vowed Sunday to make a major push to get new gun control legislation through Congress, connecting the Charleston massacre to other mass killings that have rocked the country.
“Everyone in the world scratches their heads and says what is wrong with America here,” Schumer (D-N.Y.) said, listing the Newtown, Conn.; Aurora, Colo., and Virginia Tech mass killings.
Schumer proposed three components of “common-sense” legislation: increasing the strength of gun background checks, particularly to weed out mentally ill individuals; requiring background checks at gun shows, and cracking down on the flow of guns from the South to cities in the Northeast.
Whether or not he is successful, and I doubt he will be, we are facing intense feelings on both side of gun control. In the industry, we all pretty much feel like less control would solve the problem and the left thinks the opposite. We all site instances where both sides present their “facts” as to why they are right. Since when does that even matter??? This is America for goodness sake. Gun freedom is directly in our Constitution and will always be there even if we, Americans (True Americans), have to fight for it.
The Gun Dealers are caught in the middle and being raked over the coals for their positions too. We have so much regulation on us gun dealers that we can sometimes hardly breathe. We all need less control and more freedom to live and let live.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
