I believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our forefathers said we should be able to protect our homes and children. A single gun with five shots is more than sufficient to protect ourselves and our homes. For hunters, a shotgun for hunting is all that is needed. Any weapons with more capacity than that should be banned. One city had the right idea: a metal detector at the door with one armed guard in each school.

More parents should take control of their children. Parents should instill in their children the difference between right and wrong. And, our government should take a much stronger stand to keep weapons of destruction from coming into our borders. Anyone found with an unregistered weapon deserves a stiff fine.

And, if it is proven that such a weapon would be used in crime, their sentence should be a prison term automatically. This all makes common sense.
