Background checks

Dear editor:

I have considered going and buying a gun in the next year or so. That being said, I will gladly give the government permission to do a background check on me.

If they find that I am a felon, nut case, child molester or terrorist, perhaps I should not be able to make that gun purchase.

Some gun rights organizations spread the paranoia that this is against my right to bear arms and taking all our guns is the next step the government will take.

I believe that myself and everyone I know already have enough guns not to allow that to happen; pretty sure the government knows it too.

Background checks are not a bad thing, unless you got something to hide.
