In response to the ridiculous article written by Yvonne Surette.

What part of the fact that criminals do not obey the law does she not comprehend?

I have said it many times before and will say it again. “If guns are outlawed then only outlaws will have guns.”

It also seems that Ms. Surette has this pipe dream that if the Democrats win a majority of the elections in November, that will curtail gun violence.

I do not like gun violence, as any other law abiding citizen, Republican, Democrat, Independent or any other political affiliation doesn’t either.

The Democrats have managed to politicize every issue in this country ever since our great president was elected, from the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, marijuana, abortion and a hundred other issues that pop up.

If tomorrow President Trump declared the Second Amendment null and void, all the split tongue left wingers would start yelling about losing their right to bear arms.

There are already many restrictive laws on the books regarding firearms. Weapons are not allowed in schools. Did that law stop Columbine or the massacre at the Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida? Or any other killings that have been going on for many years? The answer is no.

What needs to happen is the liberal courts need to get a lot tougher on crime. The slap on the wrist as punishment for first offenders needs to be stopped. Anyone convicted of violent acts against other citizens needs jail time. Maybe being locked up will give them time to think and realize that criminal acts will not be tolerated anymore.

If you do the crime, you will do the time!

God bless America and President Trump
