Letter to the editor: Initiative 1639 won’t work

Initiative 1639 won’t work
Many people today are concerned with firearms violence and how to stop it. It will stop when people stop using illegal fireworks and start fires. It will stop when people quit stabbing each other. It will stop when people quit driving drunk. It will stop when people quit embezzling from their employers. It will stop when people stop robbing banks. It will stop when people stop rioting and destroying property. It will stop when people stop calling their political opponents bad names. It will stop when people quit taking mind-altering drugs. It will stop when there is no more domestic violence. It will stop when people stop committing traffic law violations. It will stop when mothers do not abandon their unwanted babies. It will stop when people suddenly become good.
I think you get the picture.
It will not stop when one group of people tries to use the law to limit or abridge the rights of another group. It will not stop if Initiative 1639 passes in November.
Vote no on I-1639.
