IT'S TIME TO REGULATE THE "MILITIA" — I'm ready for the insanity of the ASSAULT weapons to be over. NPR reported that a gun show (code for "no background checks necessary", and "let's get the guns before the liberals and blacks take over") in San Francisco drew three times the crowd it did last year. The line just to get into the show was backed up for six blocks. There are a lot of scared people in this land, thanks to the merchants of death at the NRA and their puppets in Congress.
Sometime this week our president, acting upon research by Vice President Joe Biden, will announce sweeping changes to existing gun laws that have seen half of all gun massacres occur since the lifting of the assault weapons ban in 2005. The Republicans are solidly siding with the NRA because they have no guts and they are whores for the capitalist with the highest bribe.
Like Astronaut Kelly and Gabby Giffords, I am a gun owner with sense. But things have gone way too far. As President Clinton declared, "this is just nuts!" We the people have to pressure our legislators who, it appears, are ready to put the purchases of paramilitary weapons ahead of the life and safety of our children. We must convince them the 2nd Amendment calls first and foremost for "a WELL REGULATED militia." It's time to regulate and to do it WELL!— with Chris Yep Gardner, Randy Kuchera, Ladd Everitt, Sun Walker, Rodney Yearby, Cynthia Sanders, Denise A Romano, Gloria Lemos and Connie Snyder.
