    Gun control debate: Background checks

    More from omekongo

    Like everything else in life, background checks should be mandatory


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo believes every person wanting to purchase a gun should have to go through a background check. 'It seems easier to get a gun than to do just about anything in America. Cars, flying, buying homes, owning a pet, adopting. All of these things require some form of background check so why not have a background check to get a weapon that could take someone's life?' he said. What are your views on background checks?

    There is nothing we can do in America without a background check, so why should owning a gun be any different?
