LETTER: Changes needed for some gun sales
To the Editor:
I have written this before this after a big murderous shooting but I do not know if anything has been done about it.
For one thing these fully automatic weapons should be outlawed to the public or at least licensed. The gun dealers are already obliged to background check on anyone who tries to buy any of these guns.
The gun dealers would be obligated to report anyone who tries to buy one of these guns or excessive amount of ammunition to the authorities so they could do further checking. The authorities may be able to get enough information to get a search warrant.
At least they would have these guys on their radar where they can keep watch on them. Anybody that knows or sees anything suspicious should report it to the authorities right away. You might never know it, but you might have saved a lot of lives by reporting something suspicious.
