NBC is reporting that the NRA will support universal background checks if private sellers are not required to keep records. They are reporting that Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is a key player in the negotiations and supposedly if he agrees to the background check bill the NRA will sign off on it. The NRA is denying that this is true.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
- Milton Friedman
