The American people must re-shape the national discourse related to the Second Amendment rights and gun violence. As it pertains to reasonable gun control laws, the United States is a global pariah. America cannot continue to accept false narratives and blatant misinformation from self-serving pressure groups that assault weapons are “rarely used in criminal activity and would not reduce violence.” These groups continue to pursue an agenda designed to delay or destroy the implementation of much-needed gun safety measures. We need to reinvigorate the nation’s resolve to develop comprehensive and permanent “Gun Control” laws. Weapons of war don’t belong on streets throughout America.
The security of the American people is in direct conflict with the perceived “Second Amendment rights” of gun owners to possess assault rifles and massive magazine clips. These weapons of mass destruction are designed to kill an enormous number of people in a matter of minutes. On Jan. 5, 2016, before leaving office, President Obama announced a series of executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence. Former President Obama instructed former U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to “review categories of people prohibited from gun ownership to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.” However, President Trump, supported by Republican Senators and Republicans in the House of Representatives has continued to rescind the Obama era gun control policies.
Trump and Florida Gov. Scott’s allegiance to the NRA appear to supersede their love for the American people. Their refusal to attend the up-coming “Parkland Town Hall” speaks volumes about their anti-gun control positions that are responsible for thousands of American deaths each year. No American that’s serious about ending gun violence could legitimately disagree with the former President Obama’s gun control directive? It is a sad day in America when we have Republicans fearing primary challenges from the right if they oppose the NRA.

2) Background checks are a systematic way to keep guns out of the wrong hands and save lives.
3) There have been 18 school shootings in the United States in just 43 days of 2018.
4) A recent survey stated that 57 percent of Americans think gun laws should be stricter.
5) The study also found that 57 percent support a nationwide ban on assault weapons. Continue reading Reinvigoration of Our Determination To Generate Permanent Gun Control Laws
