Letter | Background checks no threat to gun owners

I am a pro gun advocate; I believe there was a reason the Founders made it the Second Amendment. That said, I see no objection to thorough background checks. There is no imperative to take possession of a gun a week after you purchase it; it’s not like a car or food. There is not a reason in the world you cannot wait 30 or 45, or 60 days to take possession of your gun.
