About Me

I'm in my 50's. I served 6 years in the Air Force. I've worked in the following fields: Military; Civilian Meteorologist; Dial-Up Internet Service Provider; Equipment Rental; Information Services; Currently working as an electrician. Married for just over 30 years. Was a registered Republican for the first election I was involved in and voted for Reagan. I changed my affiliation afterward and have voted Democrat ever since. I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. Any person that promotes a platform that supports the greatest portion of the American people is a person that I can support. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

I'm a person that doesn't currently own a gun.

I used to own a 12 gauge and a 20 gauge shotgun, as well as a .22 semi-automatic rifle. I sold them when I moved south and found that I could no longer simply walk outside and into the woods and shoot my weapons. I have not owned a gun in well over 30 years. Gun safety was taught to me by a friends father who happened to be a deputy sheriff. I was a member of the Indiana Hunters Association and received extensive training on gun safety when I was younger. I also had further weapons safety training in the military. I may well be no expert, but I wanted to share something with this group.

Watch this video and tell me why we have a problem with guns in this country. I'm not a person who believes that we should take guns away from Americans. I do, however, believe that gun registration is necessary and that if a person wants to own a gun, that that person MUST be required to pay for and set through some form of safety training on a regular basis. Own guns, but be responsible.

Tell me that this guy is responsible.

Not 1 chance in a million that I won't vote for Bernie Sanders in the primary.

But... BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me be very VERY clear, that I will vote for whomever is nominated as the Democratic presidential nominee.
