How nice of you to join our voices. I gladly welcome the opportunity to respond to your comments!
Am not sure exactly what your definition of gun control is, but certainly part of the definition would be making possible changes such as (1) ending the availability of bump stocks, (2) raising the legal age of those seeking gun purchases, (3) tightening background checks to include mental health histories, (4) improving information gathering between agencies (most particularly the FBI & state law enforcement agencies), (5) more uniform conduction of gun drills in schools, (6) the guarding of schools by trained personnel in order to protect our children at least to the extent as we protect money in our banks & (7) possible TSA type mechanisms installed at school entrances. Seemingly, these proposed actions are on Trump’s radar. Though there is a long way to go in ways unique to the US: i.e., juggling our individual rights with our states’ rights, bi-partisan organizations like the NRA & our beloved Constitution, it is a healthy start, if only our legislators will carry the baton. Fortunately or unfortunately, legislation is not in the hands of our Executive Branch. IOW, Trump can conduct but can’t make the orchestra play!
You are SO right about our country’s unique issues, Wolfgang. But then, no other country is like ours! Where else does one see citizens gather in a leader’s office to discuss & openly expose each & every concern before the country & entire world?
Glen: did you catch the women’s US Hockey team’s win over Canada last night? Worth every minute, even though it meant hitting the sack at 2:30AM! Nothing like bringing home the GOLD, my friend!
