    Columbine survivor to Obama "Start with Fast and Furious"

    Good article from a survivor of Columbine re more gun laws and registration.


    My favorite quote by far:
    “It was during this time that I personally witnessed two fellow students murder twelve of my classmates and one teacher,” he wrote. “The assault weapons ban did not deter these two murderers, nor did the other thirty-something laws that they broke.”

    Probably not a good idea on the writer's part to mention "Fast and Furious" in a letter to the President.

    Re: Columbine survivor to Obama "Start with Fast and Furious"

    The author hits the point in the last paragraph.

    The assault weapon laws didn't deter them, neither did the other 30 something laws they broke.

    The simple fact is that the laws don't matter to these people who wish to do harm.

    A law will not make these weapons disappear. It just means that law abiding citizens won't have them. If a criminal doesn't car about the 30 laws they have already broken, what the hell makes them think that a criminal will obey a mag limit or a ban in a certain model of rifle?

    I believe the administration did start with Fast and Furious. That plan went sideways, so they waited for the first mass shooting after the election to use as justification for their current gun grab.

    Some guys, in one of the SE States of the US, hacked the signal to a big drone.... right after the US said how this was impossible due to their security, and took control of it. There was quite a bit of flack about it.

    OK, back on topic. I read the full letter. I like it. He says what many of us want to say, and probably should be saying more often than we do.

    Suggestion to all those reading this thread:

    Since it's VERY unlikely that the mainstream media will run this, why don't we include references to this letter in all our emails/letters supporting our 2nd Amendment Rights to our elected reps. (You are continually writing to them to let them know how you feel about all this "gun control" crap, right?)

    Include references to this letter in your arguments. Let your elected reps know what a survivor of the Columbine shooting feels about the proposed laws. Push the greatly required investigation into "Fast & Furious".
