    Thinking about this more I am saddened that the people put into power by means of election feel that those they serve are no better than a criminal. Yesterday you were an average law abiding citizen who happened to own a firearm for protection that accepted a magazine that could hold 13 rounds. Today you are treated as a criminal, somehow they think you a bad person who would do bad things overnight. How many people have owned these guns for many years, with no blemishes on their record, no criminal history, no mental illness or instability, and no incidents of misuse of their firearm. Why is it that these people, good people, are now treated as criminals for owning a firearm that accepts a magazine? How is it that these people who for years have had no issues, suddenly will go crazy and commit unspeakable atrocity? They won't. You know it, I know it, even the politicians who vote for these types of restrictive laws know it. That doesn't matter. What matters to the politicians is being false. Lying to the people they represent. Passing legislation that will prevent no death, preserve no life, and will not increase prosperity or happiness. All in the name of "doing something immediately". Now their name is on the news. People who didn't know of them will now hear their name. They might hear something like "we are protecting kids" and that sounds good, but it is a lie, a falsehood. To the person who hasn't followed it may sound wonderful and they'll remember this person's name for the next time voting comes up. The politicians have spoken and they are saying that they don't care about the kids, they don't care about you or I, they only care about getting reelected and possibly moving up to a higher position of power. It's now time for the people to speak, what will we be saying? That we will accept their lies and their usage of a tragedy for political gain? Or will we say that we won't accept being stepped on, being labeled as criminal, being misrepresented in congress, and having our freedoms stripped away by a signature on a piece of paper?

    Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.
