    Thoughts from one that has been shoot and understands the pain.

    My grandfather died in WW ll from wounds from being shoot in War. My father was shoot in WW II also eventually dying from complications from those injuries years later. My uncle was shot and killed in Vietnam and today I carry the scars on my body being ripped apart by a weapon fired at me In Vietnam by a small child I never thought would shoot me.
    I truly understand what the families are going through and what it is like to have bullets tear your body apart. I know unlike feature films that in real life you never truly recover from your injuries. I therefor speak as a expert witness for both sides in the gun control issue.
    There is and never has been a need for anyone to own a automatic weapon of any type. There is now and never has been any need own a magazine that holds more then 10 bullets.
    I was taught that a gun is not a toy and should never be treated like it was one. That if you could not do what you needed to do to protect yourself or your family in one shot you were better off never firing the gun in the first place.
    Guns have one purpose and one purpose only and that is to kill. Since most are not prepared to use the gun for whats its purpose is they should never own a gun.
    Will more gun control measures work?. Since the ones on the books are not enforced there is no reason to believe that new laws will be any more effective.
    The simplest and easiest way to have gun control is to control the sale of ammunition. Limit how much you can buy and make certain that when you want to buy more you have to bring in your used shells.
    The government can easily control ammo sales. You can own all the guns you currently have but are limited to the amount of ammo you can have at any one time.
    The second amendment to the constitution says you have the right to bear arms, not the right have unlimited ammunition for them.
