A good decision, a bad example

President Trump today started an agenda on banning e-cigarettes. Good move for our young that continue to disregard warnings, and bad news to suppliers of this product that disregard our young lives. Any lives that can be saved are worth it.

But, parallel that with the many lives lost, and probably counting, by assault-style weapons that continue to flood our markets, the young buyer also included.

It’s not funny that Trump will allow and not attempt to institute real background checks at all points of sale, reduce ammo purchase, ban assault-style weapons that do change the assault fatalities, and institute good national red flag laws.

None of these moves will affect one’s right to own and purchase a firearm.

So Mr. Trump, do not just one right thing, do two.
