Way to go NSSF. Who will expel them next?

I find it ridiculous that in the USA we have lost common sense and think that firearms are the problem when its painfully obvious that we have a serious social problem in this country that goes much deeper than more firearm controls that have never proven to resolve any issues.

I don’t fully grasp the concept that, in the USA, the ‘tool’ is to blame for an act that was perpetrated by a human. Should we institute controls for any item that is used to harm another person? For example, rocks, bricks, baseball bats, rope, duct tape,exploding mobile phones and etc.

I hope we can find a common sense solution that works…

Can you believe this? A gun violence tax? WTF is that?
