Commonsense gun control is not the Second Amendment.
Laws regulating safety protect us everyday, such as having to wear a seat belt while driving a car or obey traffic signals. How is it that in 2023, you can go to a grocery store, church, shopping mall, high school or elementary school but come home in a body bag.

The National Rifle Association has done nothing but create fear and death. This is 2023, not the 1700s. We need universal background checks.
