Time to re-evaluate Second Amendment

Our country was awakened with more sad news that someone from our society murdered multiple people while simply going to the movie theater.

As Americans, we need to demand common sense laws to stop these incidents from continuing. Owning a firearm for home protection or for hunting is entirely a separate issue and is not a part of this discussion.

Due to the exploitation of the Second Amendment, people outside of our military and law enforcement now have access to weapons of mass destruction, including tear gas and assault rifles.

It is time for everyone to take time to re-evaluate their beliefs and understand things need to change.
