a lifetime friend of mine from another part of the country just called to tell me I need a new job in light of the recent tragedy. His belief is more weapons are on the street because of people like me. I explained the background check procedure, mandatory 3 day wait for handguns, and assured him only law abiding adult citizens are acquiring firearms from me.. All rubbish he says, our rights are outweighed by these mass shootings.. After much soul searching I have come to realize facts mean nothing to people who believe banning something will stop future tragedies. A person who never has a desire for a thing, sees no problem with stopping ALL others from having it. Our guts ache from the recent tragedy, my good friend increased the pain, but I finally understand what legal gun ownership is up against.
