Remember those who serve

On Veterans Day, it is important to reach out and honor our veterans. According to a recent United States Census estimate, U.S. military veterans make up nearly 7 percent of our country’s population. The U.S. Department of Defense reports state that since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 2.6 million veterans have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these combat veterans, it is estimated over 1 million returned home with at least one service-related disability or injury.

Please vote no on I-594. This bill is not about closing loopholes in purchases of firearms, but is about gun control, period. For instance, if I give my guns to my son for safekeeping while I am on vacation, we have broken the law. If I want to teach my wife safe gun handling at any place other than a shooting range, we are criminals. If I teach a youth group about gun safety and let them handle a gun, we are all criminals. That is not about closing loopholes.
