Common-Sense Gun Legislation

The right to bear arms is considered sacred and important enough that it is a part of the Bill of Rights and I share that sentiment, however, when the Bill of Rights was adopted, firearms were remarkably different. Our current culture of mass shootings and murder suicides due to domestic violence require that we do something. To that end, I support the preservation of an individuals right to bear arms with sensible gun control legislation designed to lower the probability of an individual intending harm to others en mass or on a small scale.
