The violence of a mass taking pictures has come to Maine. Have all of us felt somewhat as I’ve — that we have been protected right here? In any case, that is Maine. That is the place accountable gun house owners dwell, hunters and sportsmen who know the best way to deal with weapons safely and respectfully. However it seems that our free, poorly enforced gun legal guidelines have failed us.

Robert R. Card II, recognized as unstable, was capable of purchase weapons in Maine. U.S. Rep. Jared Golden’s heartfelt apology to Mainers confirmed a congressman who can acknowledge that he has thoughtfully modified his thoughts; he claimed accountability for his opinions, and he confirmed braveness. That’s uncommon. I hope that he’ll work to make weapons of struggle unlawful in our communities.

I feel to say that the Second Modification protects the fitting to personal such killing machines is ridiculous. We should not quit making an attempt to cease massacres such because the one in Lewiston. Outlawing assault weapons and making it unimaginable for individuals who elevate crimson flags to own weapons would make Maine safer. I feel Golden places his constituents first; let’s demand nothing much less of our state legislators. Accountable gun house owners ought to stand along with all of us who name upon our state Legislature to go efficient legal guidelines to ban assault weapons, guarantee accountability and cease worrying about marketing campaign cash.
