Gun control proposals could save American lives

People opposing our president's new request for gun control must not understand what he proposes to Congress.

  • Background checks for anyone purchasing a gun.
  • Assault gun purchases banned.
  • A limit of 10 shots on magazines.

These are all very good laws our country needs to stop the innocent killings of Americans.

If these people opposing the president's law were the parent of one of the innocent children killed this last year, their stand would be all for the proposed laws. Wake up and smell the coffee.
