Following the tragedies of school massacres such as those at Columbine High School in 1999, Virginia Tech in 2007, Northern Illinois University in 2008, Tucson shooting in 2011, Newton-Connecticut in 2012, the Washington Navy Yard in 2013, the 2015 shootings of news Reporter Allison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward earlier this year in Virginia, to the tragedy school shooting at the Oregon Umpqua Community College, and most recent San Bernardino, CA shootings has reignited the intense debate about gun control and gun violence legislation and the rights movement to bear arms in accordance with the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Due DiligenceThe right to bear arms gives the ability to “law abiding citizens” to defend themselves and their homes from random acts of violence that we see, hear, and read about far too often within our society and workplace today. On the other side of the spectrum, there is an effort for people to be vetted through a responsible and due diligence background check prior to the sale of any of these weapons. Now, recent events have also sparked the debate of banning the sale of weapons against people with unstabled mental disabilities, habitual violent criminal histories, and/or convicted felons. Our position at C U CLEAR is simple, “any” person applying for the sale of a firearm should be properly vetted through a comprehensive background check prior to the sale and access to a weapon desired. It’s the RESPONSIBLE thing to do and may very well SAVE some lives. It’s about exercising due diligence while attempting to “mitigate” these weapons from getting into the wrong hands. Nothing more: nothing less. It’s about an attempt to reduce incidences while preserving the rights of people to bear arms equally. We live in times today which demands unveiling deliberate concealment, identifying those with mental instabilities, and bringing forth some change which requires some type of compromise. It is for the greater good and carries a national security point of interest. As our late President Ronald Reagan once said, “Trust, but Verify.”

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says that nearly 2 million new handguns are manufactured and imported each year—adding to the 258 million firearms already in circulation. Comprehensive Background checks can assist in complimenting the scope of an investigation to verify who these guns are actually being sold to. In light of all events throughout the country for the past decade that is now becoming the norm, there is no question that as a society we need to take the moral high ground and responsibility in mitigating some of the risk and threats that challenge us today which exposes our children, families, citizens, and workforce to these randoms acts of violence. Not all, but some of these instances could’ve been avoided and the lives of  many could still be here today if more responsible actions were taken to identify red flags and/or developed concerns.
