Letter: Gun sales



This is in reference to the church
shooting in Texas. I called S.C. Democratic Rep. James Clyburn’s office
and left a heartfelt message.

Sadly and unfortunately we know the
pain that Texas is feeling. With all due respect, the sentiments of Sen.
Tim Scott come off like he is tone deaf, R-S.C., to these mass
shootings and the spread of guns in South Carolina in general. He sent
me a form letter stating that we must not trample on the Second
Amendment rights of others.

South Carolina has weak laws when it
comes to guns. Go to any gun show and in some cases the seller will be
less worried about your background than making the sale.

Straw
sales are still a big problem. Stop allowing semiautomatic and fully
automatic (bump-stock) weapons to be sold to the general public; these
are weapons of war.

School teachers don’t need to carry guns in
school, and we don’t need stupid laws that allow the public to carry
guns in bars and restaurants. Even worse is the idiotic “constitutional
carry” proposal.

Wake up, South Carolina.

'Glad that you're a 'former' sergeant in the USAF. (Thanks for your service. I think.)

But
you have no understanding of our First Principles. Pursuant to First
Principles, fundamental rights cannot be denied, nor even licensed.

To
be a sergeant (or any other rank) in our military, you should be
REQUIRED to understand and accept that. De facto, you ARE when you take
the oath to uphold and defend our Constitution.

And since you obviously don't, please cease identifying yourself as a former member of our military. And don't vote, either.




LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE
