Time to get responsible
The NRA has a slogan: Guns dont kill people, people kill people. That may be true, but people with semi-automatic assault rifles can kill a lot of people, and quickly. Thats why these weapons were designed for the military.
Its time for responsible hunters, target shooters, gun collectors and veterans like me to speak up to our legislators and stand up to the NRA. We need to ban these weapons as well as magazines that hold more than six rounds. If a hunter needs 30 rounds to get his buck, he should stay out of the woods.
Target shooters normally load only one round at a time. If a collector wants a Bushmaster in his collection, it can be a disabled one.
And veterans know the damage a .223 round can inflict.
For those who feel the need for self-defense, try a Louisville Slugger.Bob Brown Cary
