Peruse my thoughts...
When I started this journey I was upset by our current Representative's lack of understanding his constituents. You and Me. It seemed that the way he voted on issues was simply what his political party told him to vote. At least I assume that you don't think women are not worth as much as men if doing the exact same job. I assumed you didn't want Right to Work, and I assumed you wanted our children to get a quality public education which was funded by the state government and not just our local tax dollars. So I decided to put my own questions out there and here are the results.
Fear of too much gun control was the top worry of issues facing our families. I would like to address that issue with my personal feelings and thoughts of the subject. Remember i will always vote the way most of our district tells me to but I will always be honest and tell you my feelings also. I was raised in a family where my mom was the best shot hunting than anyone else. She would hit the rabbits when no one else could. Yes, we ate rabbit shot on the farm. (tastes kind of like chicken. lol) When I went to college my roommate was a Criminal Justice Major and had never been around weapons so she asked me to take a shooting class on campus with her. I was the best shot in the class. I grew up around guns and dad used to leave one in the barn for coyotes (if you are a farmer/rancher you know why) My children were both on the trap shooting team in High School. Son and Daughter. My son got to use grandpa's shotgun and keep it as a family heirloom. Over the years he, my husband and a couple of uncles have owned and shared several rifles, shotguns, pistols and even an AR.
I cannot ever see myself restricting anyone's right to own a weapon. We own several. I do however think that maybe if some were not so easily accessible we could save some lives. ... High School Counselor here who worked with students that had friends accidentally and sometimes on purpose shoot and kill themselves. My children and I were taught the proper use and care of firearms before we were ever allowed to handle one. I don't think that is too much to ask of any person wanting to purchase a gun. Proper care also includes knowing how to keep one safe from innocent hands. Gun safes and trigger locks are available and well worth the price.
But enough about me, what do you think?
