Gun control

Dear editor:

Congress should require a simple criminal background check on gun sales. The Brady Law has stopped over 2 million felons and domestic abusers from getting guns at gun stores. Now it’s time to finish the job.

I strongly support the Second Amendment. However, this right also requires basic responsibility, and as a society we are responsible for keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people like criminals, terrorists, and the dangerously mentally ill.

In addition, there are exemptions from a check between family members and hunters and sportsmen who temporarily want to exchange firearms while hunting or participating in sports shooting activities

Sincerely,

Neil Himber
