Failed gun law would have been ineffective

Letter to the editor

The gun control package put forth by socialist Democrats was a specious piece of humbug designed to mask their desire to extend government control over the American public. It was no more than “feel good restrictions” that would not have reduced the future possibility of school shootings or shootings at any public gathering places, such as theaters and malls. It would have made criminals of law-abiding Americans who refuse to abide by unconstitutional infringements on the 2nd amendment in the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution.

All schools in America need armed guards. Some liberals think this is a bad idea. If so, then why does the school that Obama’s daughters attend have armed guards? Owners of theaters and other businesses in America need to provide armed security. States need to issue more firearms-carry permits to law-abiding citizens so they can aid police in protecting the American public.

If any of my seven children had ever been shot in a school shooting, I would have sued the school board and the mayor for not providing proper security instead of being led like sheep by socialist Democrats to ask for ineffective gun control laws.

I see why there is no comment on this writing. What do Senators Pat Toomey, John McCain and Mark Kirk plus Ronald Reagan and George Bush have in common with background checks? If 'some people' would spent a little money and buy a plane ticket and see the country, they may be shocked to know how the world is changing.

Mr. King is absolutely correct.

The government prosecutes very few bad guys for firearm violations. If all of the CURRENT laws were fully prosecuted there would be far fewer felons walking the streets of America.

Look at Chicago where street gangs terrorize the public, unable to possess a handgun, even in their own home. You have an illegal gang member, shooting and illegally murdering another illegal drug dealer, for "violating" his illegally control "hood", with an illegally held gun, night after night and little happens.

Care to wage that IF additional "gun-control" laws are passed, these same people will violated them as well?
