I want freedom from gun violence in my community. Please pass sensible gun laws to stop people who shouldn’t have guns from getting them and carrying them around in public places. Protect our children from being shot and easy access to guns.
Too many people are shot to death every day in America. This is preventable if we only but let our politicians know we want our communities to be safe from gun injuries and deaths. We can do better by passing sensible state and federal gun laws.
Yeah because when Chicago and Washington DC had damn-near unilateral ban on guns, NOBODY was shot. Same goes to cities like LA or Boston, or NYC that have HEAVY restrictions on gun ownership…nobody shot there either.
This is magical thinking.
Jason Kilgore seems to have learned lessons from his past and signed it (along with 6 (SIX!) other people) but hasn’t signed it as his alter-ego of “Baldr Odinson”.
As a survivor of gun violence, I know first-hand the toll it takes on communities. There are solutions, such as requiring background checks for private sales, or mandating safe storage of guns in homes with children — it just takes political courage to do it.
Mary Lewis Grow (an anti-rights reporter) adds this illogical screed:
Freedom means not having to fear other people’s bullets. Americans need to remember that reasonable regulations confer freedom. I appreciate my freedom to breathe air not fouled by smokers and polluters, thanks to regulations! Lawmakers need some backbone!
Well you’re proposing more laws. Meanwhile there are lots of laws against shooting people, threatening people, and reckless use of firearms (as well as other dangerous things). Remember anti-rights people believe that if guns were as illegal as murder, nobody would be murdered with guns!
Oh and by the way, there are places where it is illegal to smoke, and there are methods of polluting that are illegal. Also there are ways to do both that are considered reasonable and safe. Sorry hon, you don’t get exclusive rights to public air! (Anti-Freedom, not anti-gun!)
Its good to such minimal support to the stupid boilerplate they spew out.
