Topsail Gun Gal: The gun registry's dark side

Published: Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 16:28 PM.

Imagine the check-out line at stores that will have to call in background checks on ammo sales. Is there even a category for that with ATF? Nope. Another excessive outreach by government who forgot that they are supposed to be “one of the people and for the people”.

As a person born in New York, my only question is why. Why are the voters allowing this disgrace to freedom? Being told no does not deter crime, it only punishes the law abiding.

I would like to give a big shout out to Erie County, N.Y., Sheriff Timothy B. Howard who publicly came out and said he would not enforce the SAFE Act and after doing so, won his re-election where both Democrats and Republicans stood behind him. Thank you, Sheriff Howard!

Remember knowledge is power, and if you have an opinion and feel strongly about something then do something about it! Write a blog, post on Facebook, write to newspapers and let your voice be heard. What are you waiting for?
