This question is directed to the letter to the editor from Ron Pratt, “Firearms background check deserves debate.” While I agree with Mr. Pratt that we should have background checks, I strongly disagree with him quoting that 92 percent of the people want these checks. I don’t know where he is coming up with these figures. I think he needs to go back and look at some of the surveys. Nowhere have I seen 92 percent in favor of background checks, restrictions on rifles or restrictions on clips or magazines.
