Universal background checks for all gun sales/transfers
Sen. Robert Menendez
Rep. Frank Pallone
March 14, 2013
I would like to express my unequivocal support for common sense gun legislation and in particular, the bill known as S.374 introduced in the senate, and its equivalent in Congress. It is an extremely long stretch of imagination to even try to imagine that universal background checks would in ANY WAY infringe on anyone's right to bear arms, except for those WHO ARE NOT supposed to have them in the first place. This to me, is just pure plain common sense and I am aghast that this is law is not already in place.
I trust that you and your colleagues will do the needful to protect the rights of the innocent who are victims EVERYDAY of gun violence. I will NOT forget this, come 2014 and the elections, and my vote will most certainly be for someone who stands for US, and not the NRA or its ilk.
