Support for gun safety legislation

Support HB 1224, which prohibits large-capacity ammunition magazines and HB 1229, which requires background checks for gun transfers.

Why is this important?

Even though I have hunted and fished all my life, I believe that there needs to be a sensible alternative to the private arms ownership proliferation that has created a serious public health and safety problem. As car drivers we accept the responsibility for carrying liability insurance. Background checks and limitations on ammunition magazines are comparable and we should support such legislation.
