Several facts appear to be commonly accepted in America. First, there is a plethora of guns, many of which are high-powered, automatic assault weapons. Second, there is easy access to these guns. Third, there are a significant number of deranged people in our society. Finally, deranged people with powerful assault weapons can and do kill and injure a large number of innocent people.
Sane, caring and reasonable citizens must urge Congress to find ways to save the lives of innocent people without affecting those who hunt and those who wish to defend their property.
