President Obama, close the ‘gun show loophole’

cnn

President Obama is poised to take executive action to close the so-called “gun show loophole.” In an op-ed for CNN.com, I say, “If the president can legally use his executive powers to require more stringent screenings, he should do it.” There is no reason that, with today’s technology, we shouldn’t require background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. I know guns will still sometimes get into the wrong hands, but closing the “gun show loophole” will make it more difficult.

I’m a gun owner, and I have a concealed weapons permit — although I do not carry as a matter of course. I consider gun ownership a right vested in me by virtue of my citizenship, but I also fear I could lose that right if we don’t have reasonable good faith measures to keep guns away from those who would abuse their Second Amendment rights.
