Show Less 5 Comments 1 Symbiel Price I voted for this side due to the fact that way too many individuals are allowed to purchase/possess firearms when they have no legal right; nor ability; to do so. Reply Reply Max DeYoung People who have no legal right to possess firearms can not pass a background check. ATF Form 4473 - Firearms Transaction Record Revisions. Please educate yourself. Max DeYoung Schumer blocks Senate GOP school safety bill. Democrats don't want laws that work, they want death and mayhem. 1 Bonnie Sandker That should have been done after the Sandy Hook tragedy. Also, limit the age when a person can buy a gun. No sales of assault weapons to anyone under 25 and then with a thorough background check. Stop the killing of innocent children. Reply Reply Max DeYoung There is no such thing as an assault weapon. Assault is a physical attack, performed by a person or an animal. A weapon used, is only a tool being used in the physical attack. That could even be a pillow used to smother someone. Do you have assault pillows in your home? Please educate yourself. Justin Ballz What a foolish, arbitrary thing to say, Bonnie. Age 25? Why 25? What makes that the magical age when someone is suddenly responsible enough to buy a particular type of firearm? Go back to bed, Bonnie. Max DeYoung I had already served six years in the U S Navy when I turned 25. Your reasoning is less than that of a child. Mark Cunningham Assault weapons are already banned. These automatic weapons are for military use only.. Democrats want to ban semi-automatic weapons, but like to call them assault weapons because it sounds more deadly. In truth, they consider any weapon that will have an automatic reload to be an assault weapon. 0 Adam Funny how quick they are to protect the lives of embryos because "life matters" yet 10 year olds get slaughtered by an 18 year old that can buy guns and it's political. Disgusting yet predictable hypocrisy among conservatives Reply Reply Max DeYoung Funny how you are so dense. Max DeYoung We are living in a world where Governors are signing bills requiring students to use bathrooms aligned with their biological sex at birth, to protect themselves from the sins of the Left. Mark Cunningham Adam, are you saying you are pro-life on the abortion issue or are you as big of an hypocrite as your post indicates? Justin Balls Uh oh. Little adam wet his diaper.

People who legally purchase firearms, are not the people committing crimes with firearms. Why not start holding the criminals responsible? Reply Reply 2 Zaos Gonzolez Hunter Biden purchased a firearm via background check, before promptly tossing in a dumpster near a public school. So.... Reply Reply Justin Ballz #FJB and #FHB, too. 2 Harry D I don't trust the people pushing for more gun control. They just want to take all guns away from citizens in an incremental approach, one tiny step at a time. They need to be stopped now so I am opposed to all control efforts. I vote and I donate money to Republican candidates who think like me. Reply Reply 1 Mark Cunningham This is nothing more than a political grandstand in an effort to win votes. The bill will do little to stem violence and is only for politicians to use at election time. The Democrats are taking a tragedy and using it to get their agenda passed without any proof the bill would make a difference. Reply Reply Max DeYoung Yes, the Dems are acting true to form, untrustworthy and immoral. The only change they make, is for the worse.
