    “In this day and age regulating gun safety is a top priority as guns in

    In any and every “day and age”, guns in
    the hands of careless individuals can make a dangerous weapon, a deadly
    one.
    In THIS day and age, REGULATING gun safety is a top priority, as part of the RELENTLESS incremental forcing of CITIZEN DISARMAMENT by the globalist progressive socialist/communist democrat party as they subvert our constitution (and sovereignty) and EFFECTIVELY repeal the second amendment.
