OK, enough is enough. Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action are working toward destroying our Second Amendment rights. They have petitioners around the state to try to get universal background checks and close the so-called gun show loophole.

The fact is that there is no such thing as the gun show loophole. If you go to a gun show and buy from any of the dealers there, you have to have a background check.

It’s the same if you buy on the Internet: You have to have the gun shipped to a federally licensed dealer and have a background check before you can take possession of a gun.

No universal background check or anything else would have stopped the Sandy Hook shooter. Universal background checks, waiting periods, assault rifle bans and other measures supported by these groups did nothing to stop the carnage in San Bernardino, California, a few weeks ago.

When are they going to understand that bad people are going to do bad things to innocent people until we look at the people committing the crimes and not their methods? Our president and others would like you to believe that the San Bernardino incident was about guns and not terrorism, despite what the FBI has said.

Disarming good, law-abiding people is not how to fix the problem. Supporting the Second Amendment and ending gun-free zones is.
