It seems that any problem that comes up without an easy fix, it is usually the masses who are punished. What will be gained from usurping the rights of those who obey the law and giving the government approval to make choices for us? In Mr. Lamonte letter, “Assault weapons ban,” he wants the government to decide what weapons we can own, but does he really think that those that would commit mass murder will abide by any laws forbidding certain weapons? Of course they won’t, since they’re on a mission that is morally repugnant and illegal. Mr. Lamonte, like most others with out a solution, are members of the “we have to do something” crowd. Doesn’t matter if it is a workable or a well thought out solution, it just makes the anti-Second Amendment crowd feel good.
