Columbia, SC — Sen. Lindsey Graham is not telling the truth when he says his office has received no calls from supporters of legislation for weapons control. I and many others have called his office and written letters on the need to reduce the proliferation of assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines.
Gun lovers are embarrassing themselves. Their raving defense of any and all guns merely illustrates how obnoxious their obsession is. Where are our rights to the pursuit of happiness and a civilized life, when these violent-minded people have the upper hand? It is time to acknowledge that the big business of an expanding gun market is driving most of the infantile zeal.
Reducing the stupidly easy access to the kind of killing equipment and ammunition used in recent tragedies will help make our society safe. It will reduce the possibility of classrooms full of bullet-riddled bodies.
Please support the president and others in the effort to increase public safety. At least make it a little harder instead of insanely easy to acquire mass-killing equipment .
