Letter: Background checks on all gun sales would give government too much power

Background checks

I don't necessarily agree to full background checks on all gun sales. There are people with no criminal history who murder by weapon every day out of anger. A background check won't change that.

Aside from this, the more control government has over our right to bear arms, the easier it is to make the citizens scared and controllable. Benjamin Franklin said, "Any society willing to give up a little liberty for a little security will deserve neither and lose both." It seems a lot of our citizens have lost their voice in their daily habits. Government isn't the solution. Government is the problem.

JOHN BELLACE, Kennewick
