Funny thing about opinions.
They are kind of like something else you might have heard about: We all have one.
Actually we probably have several.
I have one.
But notice how I phrased that. I have one. Not the only one.
I have made my position on gun control pretty clear.
I don't harbor for a minute that we are ever going to radically alter Second Amendment rights. Nor do I necessarily think we should.
I have, however, on many occasions, wondered why a person would need a semiautomatic weapon.
A quick glance at social media will show you that is not an especially popular opinion.
But I am always willing to entertain other opinions, despite the critics who insist that I shape the news to fit my own personal - liberal - agenda.
Today columnist Chris Freind steps up to the plate to talk about gun control.
Chris believes - as many do - that a band on some weapons will not stop mass shooting incidents.
I'm glad he weighed in.
That's the whole idea. It's supposed to be a community of ideas.
You can read Chris' here.
