Sensible gun control needed
I still believe the “love of money is the root of all evil.” Directly and indirectly, greed plays a big role in how and why so much deadly gun violence occurs in our country, possibly one of the most violent nations in history. Weapons of mass destruction made in America have been sold and distributed all over the world.
The fear-spreading National Rifle Association loves political power; gun manufacturers and gun sellers love the NRA. Money is power.
Now is the time for we the people to tell the NRA and gun merchants to stop their propaganda and the buying of politicians. Sensible gun control does not limit my freedoms one bit. It actually makes me feel more secure, less fearful.
