We need tougher gun laws
Yesterday after I posted that I thought no one but our armed forces needed a gun that shoots off 100 rounds in 10 seconds. I and a bunch of my friends got inundated by a former high school friend, who went off the deep end cursing at us, calling us pussys and snowflakes…whatever the fuck that means.
Well sir…and I use that term loosely, very loosely… this is for you and your militant friends like you, out there.
You had no idea my views on guns or the 2nd amendment, yet you chose to go off on me and my friends.
Let me tell you something, I never once said we should take away our right to bear arms, I have always had guns.
I learned to shoot at 13, I went hunting with my high school sweetheart, I taught my girls gun safety and how to shoot, as soon as they were old enough.
Yes, I beleive in the 2nd amendment, that everyone should have that right, if they choose to.
My grievance is with a gun that shoots a 100 rounds a minute, my fight is for tougher gun laws for people having them or selling them, longer prison sentences, taking more of them off the streets so that a tragedy like this doesn’t happen again.
I want background checks and people who are mentally unstable to not be able to get a gun…wow is that so much to ask for?
Do you know the gun laws in Nevada?
Yeah me either, it was scary as hell:
Nevada law does not require firearms owners to have licenses or register their weapons, nor does it limit the number of firearms an individual posses.
Automatic assault weapons and machine guns are also legal in the state as long as they are registered and possessed in adherence to federal law, according to the National Rifle Association.
Nevada does not prohibit the transfer or possession of assault weapons, 50-caliber rifles or large-capacity ammunition magazines. Local law enforcement issues concealed handgun licenses.
Open carry is legal without a permit.
But Nevada is not the only state that have these crazy “laws” there are many other states that also have lost their minds about guns as well.
Does this sound sane?
Wait…sorry that was a rhetorical question to you… after your rant..
I’m not saying take away guns, I am saying do the responsible thing here.
Do I mind waiting 7 days to get a gun, no why should I, I am not planning on killing anyone in the heat of the moment.
Do I mind a background checks? No, I have nothing to hide.
If I was mentally unstable I wouldn’t want you to give me a gun either
If I wanted to carry, do I mind going to a course or filling out tons of paper work? No, if I want it, I will do what is required of me.
If I wasn’t allowed to have a barn full of guns would I be upset, Hello.. who the hell needs a barn full of guns??
Let’s get a grip people, this is not about taking away your rights, it’s about enforcing safety in our nation.
It’s about not allowing this to happen again and if this makes me or my friends “snowflakes”
Because we obviously care about human rights more than gun rights, well then so be it!
This is still America and for now… as long as we are still a free country, I will voice my opinion. You don’t get to call me or my friends names because we don’t agree with your point of views, leave the name calling to “your” President.
So today my friends, I sincerely apologize for the behavior of this and other people like him that viciously attacked you on my page, it hurts my heart knowing we can’t speak our minds anymore without someone attacking our character.
I will continue to speak out about the injustices in our world and I will continue to delete small minded, racist, non compassionate people off my page and out of my life…take these hateful rants somewhere else…I have no room for them or you in my life…
I am here to preach love, to preach compassion, to preach that we can all change into better people and until you decide to change…you gotta go.
