Gun laws won’t help

A person steals several guns, a violation of the law. He shoots and kills his own mother, a violation of the law. Transports loaded guns, a violation of the law. Brings guns onto school property, a violation of the law. Murders 26 people according to the media, a violation of the law. These are the prevailing laws in Sandy Hook, Newtown, Conn.

The above is an attention-getting method of emphasizing a point, but due to the commonsense aspect of it, very few in Washington, D.C., or state governments will pay much attention to it. Thankfully, we do have a majority in Helena who do pay attention.

But unfortunately there are millions of people out there who somehow believe that passing another gun law will protect them from a person bent on doing harm.

Many of us have noticed that people in government that are on the political left are not concerned about more laws, they care only about fulfilling their own twisted evil agenda. The only people that a new gun-law would impact are law-abiding citizens, and it would serve only to cripple their ability to protect themselves, their families and their property.
