Background check doesn't insure against gun violence [Letter]
F. Cordell took issue in the Jan. 2 issue of the Towson Times with Jane Norman's plea to limit the public's access to guns by restricting sales at gun shows ("Cancel upcoming gun show; don't make guns so available," Letters, Dec. 26).. A vague explanation of the gun purchaser's background check process was provided by F. Cordell, in an apparent attempt to ease the public's concerns about gun buyers. Thank you – we are now able to sleep well at night knowing that all legal gun transactions are foolproof and secure, with no need to worry about the messy shenanigans sometimes associated with firearms.
