It’s time to reconsider Guns in this country. There are plenty of alternatives to nonpartisan common sense reforms that may coexist with the Second Amendment that lawmakers should consider before jumping to tired partisan talking points.
It is almost as if with every heartbreaking tragedy we learn nothing and continue to talk to each other without coming up with a solution. How many innocent people have to be taken before action takes place? We have to stop putting temporary band-aids on the problem and get to the root of it, even if it means difficult negotiations.
It is no secret that gun control is a controversial subject that often results in heated debate, but these debates are necessary for change to occur. MPs with different perspectives need these discussions to come together to find common-sense solutions – that’s what they were hired to do. With all the political vitriol in our country right now, it seems like an appropriate time to fix the country with laws and regulations that can save lives.
I think we can all agree without debate, that the AR-15 (Type of weapon used in recent mass firing 10) And military-style weapons have no place in children’s hands. Additionally, the rifle purchase age should be increased from 18 to 21, a small step but a necessary one.
Where the issue of the sale of these firearms should be debated, even the family of the manufacturer of the AR-15 has said that they were Not intended for civil use.
Another point should be able to agree with very little difficulty that guns should be placed in the hands of domestic abusers, criminals and mentally ill people. We can strengthen our national rapid criminal background check system, known as NICS, and by passing Fix nics legislation, Which is Bipartisan support When written as a clean bill – this means that the bill stands alone without any additions or changes and focuses strictly on the improvement of the bus system. The passage of this law failed in 2017 as it was not clear. Freedom Caucus member and some other GOP jurists Taking a nationalized concealment is a reciprocity measure Who withdrew the prospects of the bill December, And now they are watching Continue that NRA-backed fight Arguing that the two should be packed together – reducing the possibility of passage.

If members of Congress try to deal with excess items, as they sometimes do during shutdowns, the law may be dead in the water. But the parkland is an attempt to reintroduce the law in the wake of the shooting; Some notable supporters are censors. Christopher Murphy, D-Con., Tim Scott, RSC, Richard Blumental, D-Con., Diane Feistein, D-California, Richard Durbin, D-Ill, Mitch McConnell, R. -K., Rob Portman, R-Ohio, Kamala Harris, D-California., Charles Schumer, DNY and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska.
The Fix NICS Act seeks to increase and improve the state’s compliance with the accuracy of existing background check systems for firearms sales. It will also punish federal agencies that fail to report relevant records and will provide more federal financing for reporting and tracking domestic violence records.
While this law alone will not solve all the problems related to gun violence, it is a good start and it is hoped that further action will be taken to fix the widespread shootings in our country that are shooting epidemics. However, I hope that Congress is willing to work with survivors, parents and community advocates to address this important topic based on their willingness to debate the issue in town hall settings.
Just last night CNN hosts a town hall In Florida, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., With Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., National Riff Association spokesman Dana Loesch and Rep. Ted Dech, D-Fla. Apparently, a wide variety of sparks erupted during the debate, but some headway was made when Rubio broke up with the NRA at some key points, including the age of 18 to 21 to buy a rifle, protesting teachers ; He also mentioned a desire to reconsider his endorsement of high-volume magazines.
I think that as more types of forums are organized, both Democrats and Republicans will be ready to compromise on common sense solutions and ultimately protect Americans. Almost every issue has been talked about with each other a lot, especially this one, to understand that where there are similarities, differences and negotiating stances, a dialogue is necessary. These forums can lead to unprecedented changes that can have a positive impact.
In the coming days, weeks and months, we are sure to hear a lot about gun control and what measures can be taken to protect our children and that is fine for disagreement. But it is not okay for inactivity to continue for any longer. It is not for our children to go to school in fear and wonder if their child will come home. It is time for everyone to have their voice heard and to be open to a dialogue to get to the root of the problem and to ensure that a more innocent life is not taken.
