I was going to write this Diary last night, but it was late by the time I got home and I was tired so I figured I'd hold off until today.
I really don't understand why certain people are complaining about background checks to purchase a gun. After all, when you apply for many jobs nowadays you have to undergo a background check and some even do drug testing. Along with jobs, if you apply for a credit card, mortgage, apartment rental you have to undergo background checks also. If you have no problem undergoing these background checks then you should have no problem undergoing a background check to purchase a gun.
Therefore, LaPierre, Senators that want to filibuster a vote on background checks or those in Congress who just see background checks as a evasion of privacy (even though I think you had to undergo a background check before you ran for Congress because your Party probably wouldn't support a criminal for any Congressional seat) you can just shove it. You're hoping that we don't see the connection but it's right there in your face. If you can't approve background checks then don't apply for credit cards, mortages or try to rent an apartment.
Have to go out and will be back in about 2 hours or so. Sorry to do this but I wanted to get this Diary published.
