The saying that we all keep hearing is that no one is coming to take away our guns.
However, the current legislation (Initiative Petition 43) does just that. Any weapon with the capability to hold more than 10 bullets is going to be taken away. That includes hunting rifles. If you don’t surrender the weapons, you will be charged with a felony.
So, the legislatures want to make law-abiding citizens into felons. So, that was a lie. Next, the word,”assault” is a verb. A gun is a person, place or thing, making it a noun.
Guns don’t assault people: People assault people. There is no such thing as an assault rifle.
No one is saying that they are against extensive background checks. We are saying that we cannot support any bill that infringes on our constitutional rights. The focus needs to be placed on why these people are committing these acts, not on the tool they use to do it.
