  •  This is an issue I've brought up before (11+ / 0-)

    and I know it riles people up, but at some point it needs to be acknowledged and dealt with.

    We all want criminal background checks for guns, myself included. In fact for me that issue mattered to me before Newtown and I'm a member of RKBA.

    Because of one of the questions in the BGC medical marijuana users and anyone who even has a misdemeanor pot charge will not be able to buy a gun. I read of the confiscation of names of Oregon's MM clinics, they have a pot users data base.

    If, however you are a raging alcoholic have at it. I lost my entire paternal family to alcohol, one of them to suicide with a gun. I believe a person is far more likely to commit a violent act if they are a drinker than if they are a smoker.

    If we do get a background check, and I hope we do, this needs to be addressed.
