Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed a new gun control measure into law on Sunday that mandates all owners — even private citizens — perform background checks on potential buyers before finalizing weapons sales.
The same percentage of people will do background checks for their gun sales as the percentage of people who dutifully pay their sales taxes on amazon.com purchases. Thank goodness my brother lives in Texas and I'm a Hoosier. If he ever decides to sell me a gun, there are certain things in my background I don't want him snooping around.
