“We’re for gun rights,” said James Barnett, a retired rear admiral.
Instead, Veterans for Responsible Solutions wants commonsense actions like universal background checks, Kelly said.
These are background checks an overwhelming majority of Americans have said they support, polls show.
And what happens when we pass these background checks, and the needle on crime rates doesn’t move any? We have “universal background checks” in Pennsylvania for handguns, and that doesn’t exactly stop them from pushing gun control here. Their next big push is going to be to extend that to long guns, despite the fact they are positively rare in crimes. Beyond that, they want to ration how often you can exercise you right, and make it possible for local towns and cities to infringe on it at will.
