Re "Theft databases target employees" (Business, April 3): Companies are allowed to keep a vast database of workers accused of stealing--accused but not convicted.
So when you apply for a minimum wage job at say, Target, your name is run through that database to make sure you have never been accused of theft.
You may not be hired if your name is on that list. However, in many states, if you want to purchase a semi-automatic assault weapon with a high capacity magazine and thousands of rounds of ammunition, we are not allowed run your name through a vast database to see if maybe you have been accused of a crime?
I hope I am not the only one who sees something terribly wrong with this.
