It’s about time that one of our Republican leaders finally refused to bend to the National Rifle Association’s radical agenda and opted for a common sense approach instead. If you take the thought process of those who believe the Second Amendment should have no restrictions to its logical conclusion, we should also strike down all restrictions that limit access to cigarettes, alcohol and automobiles as well.
