Gun ControlPosted Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 9:54 AM
Since the shooting tragedy which claimed the life of children and adults alike at Sandy Hook Elementary school, both sides of the gun control and 2nd Amendment issues have been turning up the rhetoric.
President Obama has suggested there must be some changes he can make using his Presidential power.
Gun rights advocates are urging law makers to expose what they're calling the "real issues" behind these gun massacres -- suggesting better mental health care is a bigger component.
Personally, I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment, but at the same time believe gun regulation in the form of mandatory background checks and stricter restrictions on access to gun sales are reasonable expectations. There is also a need for proper safety training and a need to enforce the laws which are already on the books.
That's my two cents -- what do you think?
