I don't own a gun. I like them, I just don't see a use in my life for one. So, therefore, I have never bought a gun. I just found out that people are charged fees for the background checks. That's ridiculous. You are already being charged for the gun, which I understand because there is a cost to make them. But on top of that, you are being charged to be checked out by the person selling you the gun. I don't think that's right. It's in the Constitution that people are allowed to own guns. You should not be charged to exercise your Constitutional right. I don't think that they should charge for background checks for anything. My fiancé also told me that in California, you have to have a background check every time you buy ammo (in case something pops up on your background check after you have been cleared to purchase a gun). Okay, that makes sense. But to have to pay for a background check EVERY TIME you buy ammo, I can't get behind that.
