Letter: Changes to hearts, not laws, needed for safety

James Busch


To the editor:

Bob Bauer’s Jan. 2 Letter to the Editor espouses some familiar misrepresentations regarding civilian firearms ownership within the United States.

I have yet to understand, much less experience, a “gun show loophole.” Every federal firearms dealer must, by law, conduct a National Crime Information Center check upon every individual that purchases a firearm, regardless of the time and place in which a firearm is sold. There are no loopholes or exceptions to this law.

Private and individual sales of firearms that occur at gun shows, can just as easily occur within the parking lots of Walmart, McDonald’s or in the street in front of Mr. Bauer’s home.
