Is it? Really?
I must say that I don’t understand a lot of things in this matter. I have been writing to the representatives and asking them multiple questions of which NONE have been answered. I simply receive a form letter that says “for the good of our citizens”. I am a firearms instructor so I do know how to handle a handgun, rifle or shotgun. What if I wasn’t?
- Why do I have to pass a background check to own a firearm, but I don’t have to know how to safely handle the firearm I intend to own?
- I may have to pass a background check to own a firearm, but do I have to know to keep my finger off the trigger when I am holding a firearm?
- Why do I have to pass a background check to own a firearm, but not know to point my firearm in a safe direction?
- Why do I have to pass a background check to own a firearm, but not even have to know what a trigger lock is or own a safe to store my firearm?
The questions are endless. WHY? Why this increase in background checks, the reduction in magazine capacity BUT NO REQUIREMENT TO KNOW WHAT THE HECK YOU ARE DOING WITH THE FIREARM??????
If it’s for the good of the people why do they not have to know what they are doing? WHY?
Where is mandatory education in all of this?
