When I heard the news today about the failing of the back ground check bill I had mixed emotions. Don't get me wrong, I grew up on a ranch with a rifle and a shotgun in my hands, yet I find myself wondering if it would be such a bad thing to do a little better job making sure that we aren't giving firearms to those deemed mentally ill, or those who have committed violent crimes. I have followed very closely to the words that a certain senator from the great state of Arizona has had to say on the issue, and in my opinion, he was right on this one. We should have passed it! Good sportsman have nothing to hide, and would not be affected by a universal back ground check that would hopefully close the loop holes by which people who don't deserve the second amendment right have been purchasing firearms. I oppose the banning of firearms, but I think we may have missed the boat on this one, or should I say vote.
That's it for now. Stay safe, stay active, stay outdoors!
