NC: Here's what our state can do about guns

First, a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. These are tools of war and have no place on our streets. Assault weapons are not necessary for those who want to hunt or have a means of self-defense in their home. They are simply too dangerous and can cause too much damage for people to be able to acquire them legally.

Second, we must require universal background checks for those purchasing guns. We cannot have differing standards for acquiring a gun just because it happens through a private seller or in a different state.

I can legally buy a bolt action .30-06 or .375 H&H Magnum, and you would restrict me from a lowly 5.56 mm because it looks deadly?

Notice the writer does not identify as DNC or GOP. Either way, we Deplorables will find out, and elections are coming. GOP, we need your vote.

Since I refuse to use Facebook, I can't sign in to comment.

However, I will make note here:

Per U.S. v. Miller (1939), so-called "assault weapons" are within the ambit of Second Amendment protection, which provides that arms in common use that have militia utility or are any part of the ordinary military equipment and could contribute to the common defense are those the amendment was intended to guarantee. As a matter of fact, AR-15s and the like are textbook examples of this description.

This is precedent. Why it isn't cited in repelling so-called "assault weapons" bans is a mystery that drives me NUTZ.

"There's no legitimate use for a gun like this." --Chicago Police Superintendent Philip Cline, brandishing a 9mm semiautomatic handgun at a news conference (Chicago Tribune, "Special unit hauling in guns, drugs" by Glenn Jeffers, January 29, 2004)
