'The Case for Gun Control'

December 29, 1988

You are correct that we, the public, are growing weary of hearing the NRA expound on "the right to bear arms." Expounded out of context and intent as drafted in our Constitution.

Perhaps the first step for mankind is a uniform waiting period for purchase! This to be associated with subsequent and uniform registration of handguns on an annual basis, on change of permanent location and/or on change of ownership.

We live in an era of weaponry capable of firing ammunition that can penetrate the armored vests that police officers are now forced to wear for protection! There is no place for weapons with this capability outside the military! And yet the NRA has sought legal use of such ammunition with the same tired argument that the denial of this is an affront of "constitutional rights."
