There are some people who believe that the defeat of the gun-control legislation this week was a victory for those who want to protect their civil liberties.
A rifle with a magazine having a capacity of more than 10 rounds is not a civil liberty.
In the wrong hands, it is a catastrophic tragedy waiting to happen.
Shame on the National Rifle Association and those in Congress who voted to defeat the legislation.
The bill would have served the greater good, and its defeat can only be considered a victory for the financial interests of the NRA and the members of Congress who were “lock, stock” and bought by the NRA.
