Tonawanda News — Some of you gun owners are either making up your own lies or the NRA is telling you lies. The president, governor and New York City mayor do not want to take your guns or your gun rights away. They want gun control, they want to make it harder for unstable people to buy guns. The price of cigarettes went up due to taxes. We need a deterrent to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

If the government wants to change things in this country, and stop the crime wave, they should have the death penalty in every state. It’ll slow things down for sure if you know you’re going to die. Especially when it comes to gun violence, it should be the death penalty. If you kill somebody or cripple somebody it should be the death penalty. Not life in prison. Not a slap on the wrist and a fine. People will have second thoughts, especially rapists and pedophiles. I guarantee you things would change very fast.
