Gun control debate: Background checks
Limit Excess before Guns
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the pres; or the right of the people to assemble, and petition the government for a redress of grievances.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Article I exists because Article II is right behind it. Before you make a gun law, make a sustainable budget. Before you make a gun law make realistic reductions of expenditures. Before you make a gun law revise the tax code so ordinary wage earners are taxed at the same rate as capital gains. A gunfight will make headlines and distract many while you blow smoke up our behinds. But another gun law will not accomplish what you’re entrusted to do. The government of the United States is bascially non-functional. It is not living up to its day to day responsibilities that we citizens have entrusted it with. Its’ unable to curtail it’s appetite for spending to the point where it is currently unsustainable. Before you limit my freedom limit your excesses. To my fellow citizens remember next election one simple word anti-incumbent.
