Guns, times have changed

When our forefathers drafted the Second Amendment, they had no way to foresee future developments. What guns were available then? And the times were different.

No one should be allowed to purchase an assault weapon or high-capacity magazine. They should not be available for sale. Only active military personnel and federal and state police should be allowed to have them, and even then, use them only in extreme cases, to be evaluated later.

It’s not a gay/lesbian issue. Think about the other mass shootings — little children, religious worshipers, college students.

Stop sales of assault rifles and high-capacity magazines.
