Stand up now for gun regulations

One cannot escape the gun debate. It’s in the press, on the radio and on television.

I hope you will continue reading if I tell you that I am for the president’s proposals, but I am fearful they will not be enacted.

I’m fearful because we may, and I hope I’m wrong, have some cowardly people representing us in "red states" that are more worried about their political futures than they are about what is good for the country.

It doesn’t have to be this way, but we, the people, need to stand up and be counted. We need to be vocal.

Those cowardly representatives need to recognize that the NRA membership represents only an insignificantly small percentage of the voting population of the United States and that we, the people, will back congressional members if they do the right thing and protect us.

The NRA has clout. It has the backing of gun and ammunition manufacturers, related industries and its membership, but the rest of us must recognize that we, the people, can and should have more influence in Washington.

We just need to stand up and demand that we be counted. Let’s do it now, not later, not tomorrow. We must do it now!
