NRA-ILA’s Chris W. Cox

FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- An article appearing on TheHill.com yesterday asserted that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) is working on a bill with the NRA that would implement universal background checks.

NRA does NOT support universal background checks and is not working with Manchin to implement this type of legislation.  NRA opposes, and will continue to oppose, universal background checks and registration schemes.

We do believe that records of those who are prohibited by law from purchasing firearms (including those whose mental health history puts them in this category) ought to be included in the federal instant check system.

      I don’t mind the laws we have in place, they just need to be enforced. As far as the states, govt knowing all that I have, or being made to finger print, that is crossing the line. Guess the bottom line is I’m only for any real common sense laws. Thank you.
