My car insurance has nothing to do with the appraised value of my house. I appreciate the service (EMS), but until the costs are transparent and a better funding mechanism is proposed, I’ll be voting “No” on this measure.

The incident in question was done by a weapon that had been legally acquired through all the proper channels and had nothing to do with the so called "loophole". The problem here is not gun control, it is mental health.
