To the editor:
I am writing in response to your the June 24 editorial, “Focus: Gun sales; Supreme Court decision win for public.” I don’t disagree with prosecuting individuals who provide guns to criminals or the use of background checks without a registry. We should strive to keep guns out of the hands of those who should not have them; however, the current law is flawed as outlined by the dissenting court opinion. There are volumes that could be written about the flaws.
The primary reason I am writing is because the editorial contains misinformation. The writer alludes to the fact that background check information can be used to trace a firearm to the original buyer to support the position, and changing the system would harm law enforcement efforts to trace weapons. This is inaccurate.
