To the editor:
Shame on Sens. Roberts and Moran and their cowardly comrades. These elected officials have caved in once again to the disingenuous positions of the National Rifle and Gun Owners associations.
Why would we continue to permit persons with criminal records or a history of mental instability to purchase weapons of destruction without background checks? Why would we continue to allow the purchase of magazine clips with 30 bullets? No hunter would use 30 shells to bring down game.
This has nothing to do with taking away a person’s Second Amendment rights. It is simply common sense.
Have we learned nothing from the slaughters in Newtown, Aurora, Columbine and too many other places to mention?
Shame on us for allowing such senselessness to continue.
