Re: “Collins takes shotgun approach to gun laws

What we really need is a SAFER ACT. This act would ban all firearms capable of holding more than one round of ammunition. This would eliminate the scourge of mass shootings that has become all too common. While fumbling to reload the weapon, a shooter could be overpowered, or victims would have time to flee. I see no reason why legitimate sportsmen need more than single shot firearms. It was good enough for the pioneers.to practically eliminate our wildlife years ago. It would also make rural target shooting less annoying to neighbors. Sometimes it sounds like a war going on.

Re: “Our guns and our fear

I have to agree with gun owners on one point. That is the definition of a particular style of gun as an assault rifle is not necessarily a deterrent to a killer. However, there would be one very effective bit of legislation that could have a real effect on limiting the potential for mass type killing. That would be to eliminate all firearms with the exception of single shot weapons. Specifically,legal arms could only hold a single cartridge which must be manually reloaded after each shot. This would not only eliminate the potential for mass shootings, but it would also increase gun safety for legal sporting use. As someone who has a lifelong involvement in wildlife conservation, I am at the receiving end of a load of sporting and gun catalogs. The recent trend in ads for thousands of rounds of ammunition, high capacity magazines, and burial containers for hiding guns and ammo, make me think our so called civilized sportsmen are less civilized than I had hoped.
