Lets fight the violence with stronger gun control laws

By Paul Archipley | Apr 08, 2009

If youre a member of the NRA, please explain your organizations extreme opposition to meaningful gun control. In seven violent incidents in less than a month, whackos with guns have shot 53 innocent people, including sleeping children, helpless nursing home seniors, and police officers.

And, in some of those cases, the killers armed themselves not with regular handguns that many law-abiding people keep in their homes to protect themselves from the wingnuts, but assault rifles, sometimes ginned up with high-capacity magazines. The most recent mass murders occurred in our state on Saturday, when a distraught husband killed his five children, then turned a rifle on himself, after his wife dumped him.

Its long past time to establish meaningful compromises that gun owners and gun control advocates can live with.
