According to national crime statistics, in 2012 there have been more mass shootings in the USA then ever before. Additionally, 80% of all mass shootings were perpetrated with firearms purchased legally. Something must be done to restrict firearms from those intending to do harm to other people. Imagine if we could have stopped those 80% of shootings from occurring. That is what I aim to stop with my petition. If we all continue to sit by and do nothing different with the gun laws, then we all have a share of the blame for not stopping the violence.
Remember that owning a firearm is a RIGHT by the 2nd Amendment, but it is also a PRIVILEGE. A privilege that must be protect by keeping firearms from those that would commit evil acts.
