Dear Sen. Jill Vogel,
According to the June 4 front-page article in The Winchester Star, you have not modified your stance on gun violence prevention legislation, even in the wake of the recent massacre of 12 people in Virginia Beach. Could you please answer the following questions:
1. What situation requires a non-military person to need a large-capacity magazine with more than 10 rounds?
2. In what legitimate scenario does a person need to purchase more than one handgun in a 30-day period?
3. When does a person need to use a silencer, when virtually all law enforcement professionals oppose them?
4. Why are law-abiding gun-owners so afraid of a universal background check, which has been proven to make gun purchases more difficult for criminals?
If you could please answer these questions, then maybe your constituents would have more empathy towards your continuing opposition to “common sense” gun legislation as suggested above.
