Gun owners always forced to compromise

SEYMOUR - The March 7 NRA article in the Press-Gazette states that the National Rifle Association is the force behind the lack of will of Congress to pass gun control legislation. The 65 million background checks the last four years dwarfs the membership of the 4.5 million in the NRA. It's not just the NRA worried about Second Amendment rights, but also the law-abiding citizens.

Funding politicians should not be necessary. The section of the Second Amendment that states "shall not be infringed" is quite clear. It needs no revision or probing to try to make something more of it.

FBI statistics from 2011 show that hammers and clubs killed 496 people; rifles killed 323. So we have more dangerous inanimate objects to worry about than guns. Should we register hammers and baseball bats? Or outlaw them?

Gun laws passed in 1934, 1968, 1986 and 1994. There is always talk of gun owners compromising. What compromise do they get? The right to remain out of jail?
