I was at Raley's the other day picking up my decongestant, and as always was requested to show my identification and sign the sheet of paper that checks whether I am a meth dealer.
That is not very different than watching retailers check younger aged folks for cigarette and liquor purchases. All three are background checks. I suppose it is an infringement on some freedom I have overlooked and it may be a freedom that many would prefer not to lose. But it is an effort to keep meth, lung cancer and under-age driving while intoxicated under control. So shouldn't a background check be agreed on for purchasing weapons?
