So, what is the difference between supporting the Second Amendment and being considered a “gun-nut”? Our state legislature has continually loosened gun laws, such as dropping the restrictions on carrying a concealed weapon.

Does anyone really believe that millions of NRA dollars are NOT flowing into legislators pockets? Anyone? Public safety is being compromised under the guise of our “right” to protect ourselves. They sell it; we buy it, hook, line and sinker.

Circus owner P.T. Barnum once said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” SB 1201 is such a bill. Like us with the majority of our legislature, Barnum too was surrounded by clowns — very, very sad clowns.
