1) Lets get one thing straight. The problem is not guns. If you were able to magically take all the guns away, the situation would not change. The criminals would be using bombs, knives, hammers, torches, saws, bricks, stones, clubs ....
2) Organizations like the NRA do not support the criminals and are not fighting for the rights of criminals to have guns. The NRA fights for the rights of law abiding citizens to own and use guns, which is a natural right that is upheld by the nations constitution.
3) I have obtained my guns in a lawful manner and gone through the process to be permitted to carry my guns in public. Neither I, nor my guns are causing your problems. They are not in the streets, in the hands of criminals, being used for drug deals. Trying to restrict me will not help your problem in any manner.
4) The criminals are NOT getting carry permits and lawfully buying guns in stores. Placing higher hurdles on those who do will not solve your problem.
The bottom line that antis like this councilman need to realize is that by targeting me with their frustrations, they are putting me in the position of working against them, not with them. This is only going to make their situation worse, not better.
