Every time someone talks about revisiting and revising gun laws, the messaging gets obscured, and somehow it comes out on the other end...”the liberals want to take all your guns away”.

I want to be very clear....

(A thread)
I don’t want to take your guns away. I AM NOT AGAINST THE 2nd AMENDMENT.

In fact, my husband is a law-abiding gun owner who believes in common sense gun reform. (This part is usually omitted when the other side argues against me). #NoRA
If we focus on facts. Actual facts...not hyperbole from either side or fake “studies” that are slanted from one side, we should collectively be able to reach sensible resolution where all parties feel both protected, and safe. #NoRA
That said, I do think as a nation grows and changes, so should It’s laws to accommodate that change. #NoRA
AR-15’s and similar or doctored guns are not designed for hunting, not for home protection...but to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time. #NoRA
And there is an alarming pattern that the AR-15 have become the weapon of choice for mass shootings in our country. Not handguns but weapons capable of firing a lot of bullets in a short amount of time. #NoRA
I feel like we should be able to find a way to appease people on both sides of this issue with regards to who is able to get their hands on these types of weapons. #NoRA
Sadly, people have tuned out before we ever get to the heart of the issue. #NoRA
The topic gets raised and all people have been trained to hear is, ”they are gonna come take my guns”. It’s an effective strategy by the NRA that has allowed our lawmakers to make almost no changes in laws/regulations other than a few symbolic alterations here and there. #NoRA
It will take time. #NoRA
It will take guts. #NoRA
It will take cooperation.
It will take getting to the polls and voting them out. #NoRA
But our kids are worth it. #NoRA
Our citizens are worth it. #NoRA
