Voters feel strongly about gun control

OlympiaMarch 9, 2013 

I want to say that I’m passionately for gun control, but I was unable to attend the meeting on gun violence in Lacey. To say that the attendance at that meeting was a test of caring about gun control is not accurate. Most people I talk to really feel deeply about this issue but couldn’t attend the meeting for one reason or another.

Also, requiring background checks and not selling automatic weapons to private citizens is not really gun control. It’s sanity.

Finally, I think the senators and representatives both in Washington state and Washington, D.C., who ignore the people and vote for the NRA will find themselves out of a job, come election day.
