Concerns About Universal Background Checks

Posted: March 9, 2013 in Politics

So you are worried that if there is universal background checks before purchasing a firearm the government will have a data base with which it can come get your guns if it wants to. What you aren’t realizing is the government “of the people and for the people” is you. It is inconsistent to believe you can trust you with a dangerous weapon, but can’t trust the government to follow the (proposed) law and dispose of the information included in your application after a period of time. If you are concerned that the organization made up of law enforcement officers will prevail in their agenda to retain the applications so they can use them to find criminals, join the ACLU in keeping this provision out of the bill. When was the last time you wrote to your legislator to voice your opinion about this? If you are of the mind that they don’t listen, believe me they do. What you need is a well articulated message that gains the backing of people of like mind. One way to make this happen is letters to the editor.
