Reader: What kind of country do you want? 


President Trump is lying about Democrats and guns. Democrats do not want to repeal the Second Amendment and take your guns away. That is a Republican lie. Democrats are searching for ways to keep guns out of the hands of criminals who intend to murder human beings. The powerful National Rifle Association and Republicans' position on guns actually helps criminals who murder. The lax controls in Florida supported by the NRA and the vast majority of Republicans, allowed a very disturbed 19-year-old who had made numerous threats of gun violence to obtain weapons of war and kill 17 people who were way too young to die. Anyone who votes for Republicans who are financed by the NRA is complicit in these murders in my humble opinion.

Republicans, what kind of country do you want? A country where our children are afraid to go to school? A country with armed encampments, with security guards and soldiers carrying assault weapons in all our public spaces? Or, will you modify your universal support of every NRA demand, and help Dems to make it harder for potential murders to acquire weapons?
