Letter: It’s common sense
I write to voice my support of common-sense gun legislation.
Almost 40 percent of gun transfers happen with no background checks at all. Expanding background checks to include guns sold at gun shows would go a long way toward making background checks universal. This measure does not limit individual gun ownership but would make it harder for certain people to gain access to guns who we all agree should not have them. It would save lives and for that reason alone is worth passing.
Therefore I hope that Sen. Kelly Ayotte will change her mind and support strengthening background check laws.
