I have been pretty quiet with my opinions about the assault currently underway on our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. But while listening to the Senate hearings on gun violence last week I had a thought… Let’s start parading people in front of the media who have stopped rapes, murders, home invasions, child and adult abductions, car robberies and the likes because they were armed. Let’s have zero tolerance for committing a crime with an illegally possessed gun. Let’s have zero tolerance for possessing an illegally obtained unregistered gun. Let’s have zero tolerance for those who steal registered guns from family members or others. The gun stores and gun show merchants follow the law; many people break them due to the lack of an immediate forbidding consequence.
