"As congressional leaders spout more National Rifle Association-inspired rhetoric about the right to bear arms without any infringement on the Second Amendment, I am finding my First Amendment rights of freedom of assembly and freedom of association trampled.

It’s time to enact sensible gun legislation aimed at getting to the real problem: too many guns in too many hands without checks and balances."
