It is past time to pass gun control legislation. Red flag laws, comprehensive background checks and a ban on assault style weapons all need to be enacted. The senates unwillingness to even bring forward gun control legislation is reprehensible. I understand the proposals on the table may have flaws or need to be worked on, but to not even consider or discuss them on the floor is completely unreasonable. We accept that the right of free speech in the first amendment is not an absolute right, I am just as any limitations to the First Amendment must be made with great caution I agree that any limitations to the Second Amendment must also be done with care and caution, but that is not an excuse for inaction.
