I am disgusted by the level to which the national debate on (gun control)has sunk. Mr. Howard’s recent letter is prescient – comparing knives and baseball bats to firearms is the latest example that he and the NRA have concocted.
The facts are these: the laws proposed on universal background checks and closing the gun-show loopholes specifically prevent the creation of a national registry and also received NRA support, that is until they became a mouthpiece for firearms manufacturers.
As a gun owner who favors these common sense approaches as well as increasing mental health care in this country, and who actually read the laws proposed, the only thing I find accurate in Mr. Howard’s letter is that it was included in the “opinion” section.
