Gun owner agrees with assault weapon ban
I am writing this letter as a coherent gun owner. I do not own an assault rifle. These weapons were designed for the military to kill people. These were the weapons of choice for the gun massacres of recent years.
In my estimation they should be banned. There are enough other types of guns for the hunters and target shooters.
As long as these guns are in the hands of potential shooters, we are not safe.
