If you're going to write, at least check out what you are writing about. Day after day, I read that we need background checks for people buying guns.

Try buying a gun at any responsible gun store. Indiana already has a background check.

Also if you want a carry permit you must be checked by the state police, which includes FBI. Maybe the papers should stop printing those letters that insinuate that we don't already have those checks in the laws of Indiana.
