The current firearms controversy?, debate? or sound bite? There appears to be no rational solution or conversation to the issue of firearms used to kill folks in several locations around the country. In some instances the shooter was killed, killed themselves or was captured. The big issue is certain modifications or updates on long guns to make them automatic. This has come around several times in the past 10 years and still no real solve to the problem. As I see it what needs to happen is legislatures need to have a REAL conversation not issuing sound bites that rile people up and fall flat. If we had elected people who were really in the office to serve then we should be able to expect a true conversation about firearms that would make sense to all of us. Unfortunately many are afraid of their patrons such as the NRA (which has shifted too far right for redemption without a new blood infusion). The modern NRA has lost membership due to their wild issuance targeting one Major party while supporting the other. The corrective action would be a sit down with both majority parties at the Federal and State levels with no distracting fanfare. Unfortunately it is being shown by the legislators especially prominent is Florida that they are afraid of the NRA and thereby standing with the NRA against the safety of their fellow Americans and specifically our children. It is apparent and openly seen that the NRA has an interest in it’s own well being and not the American public who support them. An armed teacher in each classroom is not the answer as this takes away from the job of teaching. Listening to NPR today it seems that the answer is not with legislators and the current administration (No surprise) but with the voters. The Mafia used knee cap injuries to send a message, perhaps this method will work on legislators but in the form of a vote and protest.
