Letter: He’s legal and hides nothing

May 2, 2013 

Please allow me to share my hard-earned two cents on the idea of mandatory background checks for legal gun purchases.

I own legal firearms. I also own a legal home, legally work, legally pay my taxes and legally vote, Republican. I am Joe 12-pack. If you need more information when I make my next legal firearm purchase, just let me know, I’ll be happy to oblige. People who do things legally have nothing to hide.
