In case you are unaware, a letter addressed to Mayor Bloomberg contained traces of ricin. The text of the letter included:

You’re not going to take my guns. You’ll have to kill me before you take
my guns. If you take my guns, you should see what I’m going to do to you …

Acting on behalf of the gun industry, the NRA has successfully convinced people that gun safety advocates want to take people’s guns away. In 2008, they swore that Obama was a “gun grabber” who would confiscate everyone’s guns. Just how many times do these people have to get “played” before they employ some critical thinking?

I, having been shot by a .45 in the hands of a prohibited purchaser, want universal background checks. Does anyone really feel that we need to insure that criminals and insane people can purchase guns? 

Background checks don’t confiscate anyone’s guns. Nor do they interfere with the right to bear arms of any law abiding person.
