THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Get background checks to purchase hardware

— Anyone with any common sense knows you can buy a gun on the street without any kind of background check any day of the week. Background checks will be OK, we need to try to stop having victims of any kind crime.

The U.S Senate used common sense in their discussion on gun control. If we need background checks on guns, then we need background checks on anyone that buys nuts, bolts, screws or nails. That’s what they used in the bombs in Boston and other places that kill and dismember people. Let’s get a petition started on background checks to buy hardware.
