As I had noted recently, here in VT there is a battle right now between ordinary folks who own guns and Bloomberg’s anti-gun organization sending their high priced staff here to lobby. The current issue is wanting all gun show & private sales to go through the background check. In today’s paper there was an article which made an excellent point. If the reason for background checks was to stop prohibited persons from buying guns, then they just need the info on who the buyer is, but what the background checks do is record make, model, & serial # which has nothing to do with whether the buyer is a prohibited person or not. Govt. already knows criminals don’t make legal purchases. It seems the only reason for background checks is to create a gun registry.
