My dream for my country is to drop all gun laws, or at least some major unfair ones, along with all the gun bans. If people want to go target shooting, they can't like they used to because they are being penalized for not doing anything wrong. It's the gangs and criminals that are shooting everyone and doing illegal things with guns. The responsible gun owners wouldn't do those things. Most people think it's the guns that are killing and hurting people but it's the person that uses the gun. People kill other people and animals with cars. Why don't they outlaw cars? The responsible people are having their guns taken away for no reason. I don't think that's right. That isn't a dream, it's a nightmare.
