John Olson: Urge U.S. Rep. Neal to back expanded gun checks
To the editor:
Nine in 10 Americans support expanded background checks to reduce gun violence, but the gun lobby is working overtime to kill any meaningful legislation such as H.R. 1565 in the U.S. Congress.
We need to urge U.S. Rep. Richard Neal to support expanding background checks and to co-sponsor H.R. 1565.
One way to do this is through the Internet. Just Google “Contact Congressman Neal.” Now is the time to remind ourselves that strong, sensible gun laws preserve Second Amendment rights, reduce gun violence and save lives.
