When I was younger I loved to go hunting. I had several shotguns and rifles.
Kentucky and federal laws stated that I could not load more than three shells in my 20-gauge or 12-gauge shotguns to shoot a duck, rabbit, dove, quail, deer or other game.
There were other laws about the number of bullets or scatter shells allowed in guns in other states. Delaware, Maryland and many more have restrictions on the amount of ammunition allowed in a rifle or shotgun.
Many states have laws restricting hunting with pistols. Almost every state (and federal) has a law stating what you can and cannot hunt.
Never miss a local story.
The NRA has never objected to any of these fair laws.
What has happened?
Some ill-advised people have secured assault rifles because our armed forces use them to kill as many enemies as possible, and now the NRA backs no restrictions and apparently does not care if mentally deranged people kill as many men, women and children as possible.
Our city, county, state and federal governments owe it to their constituents to pass laws making assault rifles with extended clips illegal, unlawful and unacceptable in our modern society.
If our present legislators can't do the job, let's get some in who can.
