The person who attacked the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Colorado, killing and injuring several people, was a deranged lunatic. Again, we have a person who should not have been able to obtain possession of a weapon, but somehow was able to do so.
Gun violence continues to rise across the country, and we still do not hear any noise from our elected officials regarding restricting the sale of guns to the public. When is Congress going to wake up?
Americans certainly have a right to protect themselves and their families from potential violence, but not everyone should be able to purchase a gun. There must be much stricter background checks on any person who is looking to purchase a gun.
People also have the right to walk down the street without worrying that some off-balance person is going to shoot them for no reason.
