Columbine survivor to Obama: "Whose side are you on?"

Open letter to Barack Obama:
Mr. President,
As a student who was shot and wounded during the Columbine massacre, I have a few thoughts on the current gun debate. In regards to your gun control initiatives:
... a universal background check will have many devastating effects. It will arguably have the opposite impact of what you propose.
... The evidence is very clear pertaining to the inadequacies of the assault weapons ban. It had little to no effect when it was in place from 1994 until 2004.
... There are no substantial facts that prove that limited magazines would make any difference at all. ... Why would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens? Under this policy, criminals will still have their 30-round magazines, but the average American will not. Whose side are you on?

Mr. President, do the right thing, restore freedom, and save lives. Show the American people that you stand with them and not with thugs and criminals.
