This bill moves in the right direction for our liberties and pro gun enthusiast. There are many individuals who think this is not a wise ideal, I understand. However; in these times where it appears we are loosing more and more liberties, this law adds personal freedom rather than removing it. As adults we must insure we and our childern use the utmost discretions in complying with this new freedom! Continue the march for freedom!

God bless America.
