The NRA mantra, “guns don’t kill, people do,” is old and as wrong as the interpretation of the Second Amendment, which refers to a “well-regulated militia.” Well, we have a militia, the State and National Guards, and I don’t believe that we are about to revolt against the federal government.
It is beyond comprehension how legislators have a problem with expanding background checks and reducing magazine capacities. Let them sit face-to-face with a Newtown parent who lost a 6-year-old. If it is true, and I believe it is, that 90 percent of Americans want action on these two issues, then that 90 percent should be flooding Congress with their messages.
Remind the legislators that they don’t have tenure.
