Gun Sense is Not Nonsense!
As a Virginia resident, I have observed a marked increase in gun shots and gun violence in my area. As a disabled citizen, I find this atmosphere of heightened violence extremely disturbing! While we have a right to bear arms, we also have a right to domestic tranquility and safety, and that should receive priority over gun rights. When Jesus said "Blessed are the peacemakers", He was not referring to gun manufacturers, sellers, fanatics and lobbyists. Alarmingly, incidences of gun violence across the country has increased directly proportional to gun regulation decreases! It is critical that we count the cost of the right to carry a gun, which can be the sacrifice of human safety and the quality of life. We can and must pass sensible gun legislation.
