I want to thank John Erickson for his response (above right) to our statement "Gun Rights with Responsibilities." I was happy to see that he agrees that guns "should be kept away from criminals, the dangerously mentally ill, children and the suicidal." We had proposed universal background checks prior to obtaining ownership of a gun as a way of achieving this goal. Perhaps John can now explain to the readers of the Journal how he would propose that we achieve this end?
