Maybe we should follow Japan on guns
Has the NRA or any gun owner in West Virginia read the U.S. Constitution? Where is the army attacking our state?
The Constitution says we have the right to bear arms in defense of our state. What it doesn't include in its wording, the right to bear arms to feed our families. Nor, does the Constitution give us the right to keep the firearm on our person or in our homes.
Do you think America needs to take a page out of Japan's gun-ownership rules? Japan allows residents the right to own a rifle for hunting. In gaining that privilege, it has to be stored at a law enforcement facility. When hunting season is open, they give you your gun. When the season is over, you have to return it to that facility for safekeeping. Only 2 percent of the Japanese population loses their lives to gun violence. Now, what is America's percentage?
Instead of grown people moaning about gun ownership, we should be on our knees thanking God our children sit at our dinner table each night.
If I need a gun to protect my family and, of all things, material things, it is because a gun is an easy way to say "gimme" or "I hate you."
No matter what laws our country's president and Congress enact to curb gun violence, we will follow the rules. If not, included in jail time and fines, violators should be tattooed on the forehead. Rules are rules.
