I totally understand how ‘pro guns’ might think it proper to allow anyone to buy as many guns as they want to ‘just because’, but those same people would be outraged if one of their own went on a rampage using one of the many automatics purchased whether or not within a 5 day period.

“Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” – ahhh,how many times have I heard that.

Yes, that’s true, people kill people using guns so easily attainable. We have become a gun nut culture.

Limit the purchase of guns.
