Gun Control, Profit, and Individual Rights

The article ``Gun-Control Advocates Gain Momentum ...,'' Dec. 14, mentions that the National Rifle Association (NRA) wants Congress to supply funds for the ``instant-check system'' that they are proposing. The money should come from taxes on guns and/or ammunition and not from general funds.

Also, Jeff Danziger's cartoon in the same issue says it all. Profit is what the NRA does not want to lose. It has nothing to do with the right to bear arms; it is about selling arms. Bruce Clark, Los Altos, Calif.
