Then there is the writer's point of view.Kimpson has plans to file five pieces of legislation meant to close loopholes in gun laws and require better background checks and registration, as well as banning assault weapons and clips that hold an insane number of rounds.

He also wants firearms registered with SLED to keep a better tracking system for guns, and to require people report when their guns are stolen.
Perhaps his most controversial idea, however, is to require people to get a permit from the state to buy firearms.
I recommend that Mr. Brian Hicks research the legal meaning of "prior restraint" and its application to our enumerated rights.He’s absolutely right. In politics, timing is everything. Just like it was with the Confederate flag debate, events have forced our hand — and forced reasonable people to quit ignoring some serious problems.
Let’s hope the Legislature listens and uses the senator’s reasonable proposals as a starting point to introduce a little common sense into the law.
Because Kimpson is not the fool here.

Hint: Mr. Brian Hicks should be required to have a state issued permit to ply his trade. I mean, his rights will not be infringed...words can be just as deadly as a gun, or a car.
