To the Editor:
I'm from Louisiana. Less than two hours southwest of Duck Dynasty territory, to be exact, in a little town called Many. I grew up with guns. My dad had guns, my mother had a gun, my brother had a gun. I ate every kind of animal you can name. So here's my take on gun safety.
Hate to tell ya'll this, but anyone who does not support universal background checks supports criminals. And anyone who does support straw sales and loopholes, well, you support criminals as well.
Because criminals count on those two methods to get their weapons.
May sound harsh, but it's the truth - that's what it all boils down to.
And, by the way, neither of those infringes upon our Second Amendment rights, which, of course, I support as well.
