"Substitute the word 'buyers' for sellers, 'guns' for marijuana, 'purchase' for sale, & you have common-sense gun control."

Today's L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Colorado's new high," Jan. 27

The Times' article on Colorado's new constitutional amendment legalizing recreational use of marijuana was quite interesting. It states: "In Colorado, sellers of medical marijuana must have a background check … and submit to inspections by the state. Every plant is tagged and numbered, from seed to sale."

Substitute the word "buyers" for sellers, "guns" for marijuana and "purchase" for sale, and you have common-sense gun control. That would be downright impossible to come up with, given that weird stuff the House GOP is on.
