Nov. 22, 1963 afterthought

Despite Lee Harvey Oswald’s dubious background and suspicious activities, he was able to buy through mail order the gun that allegedly killed President J.F.Kennedy. If background checks had been in place, that purchase may have been averted, and our elected president may have been allowed to pursue a more promising new direction for the US, – and the rest of the world. It is not only difficult to understand the rational behind NRA’s resistance to background checks. Their position is also highly suspicious, as well as dangerous for anyone, including current and future presidents.
