In reference to Mr. Froelich's letter of April 24 ("Millions of owners of guns are law-abiding"), could someone please explain what I'm missing here? Why would a background check strip away his right to bear arms? If he and his fellow law-abiding gun owners have nothing to hide, wouldn't a background check prove that? Then they could happily purchase all the weaponry they could ever want to defend themselves from the presumed army of invaders threatening them. And, just possibly, the checks might weed out someone who was not so innocent and maybe a few of our children would be saved. Just askin'.
