A Somewhat Reasonable Gun Control Compromise?

Leave a comment

June 22, 2016 by Chris Kite

Apparently We The People are making our Senate Representatives feel a bit of heat on the gun control issue. I don’t think this goes nearly far enough, but it is a start, and any time we can get Republicans on board to decrease the chances of a dangerous lunatic getting their hands on a gun and going on a shooting rampage, I think we’ve got to seize the opportunity.

This doesn’t address assault rifles or the gun show loopholes, but at least it takes the logical step of putting people on the “No Fly” list on the “No Buy” list. It also gives them an opportunity to contest the assignment to the list, and this is a very good thing.

I would like to see much more, but this is a positive first step and shows maybe there is at least some ability to compromise on tough issues.

If it can pass. Which, of course, is no sure thing in a country where the NRA owns half of congress!
