Senator Charles Grassley (R (of course)- IA) thinks we need a study post-Sandy Hook:
I do agree though that it's time to study these mass shootings. I think we ought to pursue the ideas that call for a blue ribbon task force or commission with all stakeholders that can look at the much bigger issues associated with tragic events such as this.Senator, I'm here to tell you the study's been completed. Here's its summary:
It shouldn't take you long to get up to speed and accept your responsibility to your constituents and your country to address this issue. In other words, no blue ribbon panels.
On a related note, I visited with some one I know yesterday. He's an avid hunter who owns several rifles, as well as a semi-automatic handgun. The latter is for his wife's self-defense, though I don't think she's ever fired a gun herself. He believes that a ten-round magazine is the absolute maximum needed for self defense: Anybody can hit a target in ten shots. He would ban all magazines/cartridges above ten rounds. He would also ban the sales of all conversion kits that increase the firepower of a manufacturer's gun as originally sold, including, especially, over the Internet. Just some thought.
