Gun rights touted

You ask who is asking for our guns. Do you read the news, watch television or listen to the radio? What do you think these laws entail? Do you even have a clue or are you just talking to talk? Apparently you didn’t see what Gov. Cuomo wanted in our new bill (and did not get); it was to confiscate our weapons. Sen. (Diane) Feinstein is putting forth a bill in which, assault weapons (all), rifles (some), pistols/handguns and shot guns will be illegal to own but police and government officials may own them. The one she wants to pass but knows it won’t is to ban guns altogether. No one minds the background or the NICS check, it is the weapons and ammo we wish to purchase or have that will be kept in a data base that I mind. It’s none of the government’s business or yours to which weapons I own, how many or how much ammo I purchase and who are you or they to tell me it is? Why does the government or you for that matter think you have the right to tell me how many rounds I can have in my clip or magazine or what gun I can purchase? Since I am a responsible gun owner do you not think I know how many rounds I might need? Do you know what the Second Amendment even states (hint: it has nothing to do with hunting) “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” and upheld by the Supreme Court. The governors, senators, congress and other legislators take an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America which includes the Second Amendment. Something they need to remember. If I do not break the law or haven’t broken the law what does it matter what I own? It is an insult to me and impugns my reputation as a responsible law abiding citizen and gun owner.
