This has been getting traction on the World Wide Web. Evan Todd was a student who was wounded during the Columbine High School shooting back in 1999, now dubbed the Columbine High School Massacre. Somehow not only did he survive physically but he didn’t let the incident fry his brain and turn him into a turnip when it comes to thinking about Obama’s gun control “initiatives.”

Todd wrote a letter to Obama which the president will no doubt never see much less read (why would he?) but Todd’s comments, especially on the matter of background checks, are helpful in some of the consequences (some say they are intended) of such legislation, especially as it is about to be passed into law in Denver.

I refer specifically to background checks. Here’s what Todd wrote:

First, a universal background check will have many devastating effects. It will arguably have the opposite of what you propose. If adopted, criminals will know that they can not pass a background check legally, so they will resort to other avenues. With the conditions being set by this initiative, it will create a large black market for and will support more criminal activity and funnel additional money into the hands of thugs, criminals, and people who will do harm to American citizens.

Second, universal background checks will create a huge bureaucracy that will cost an enormous amount of tax payers dollars and will straddle us with more debt. We cannot afford it now, let alone create another function of government that will have a huge monthly bill attached to it.

Third, is a universal background check system possible without universal gun registration? If so, please define it for us. Universal registration can easily be used for universal confiscation. I am not at all implying that you, sir, would try such a measure, but we do need to think about our actions through the lens of time.

It is not impossible to think that a tyrant, to the likes of Mao, Castro, Che, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and others, could possibly rise to power in America. It could be five, ten, twenty, or one hundred years from now — but future generations have the natural right to protect themselves from tyrannical government just as much as we currently do. It is safe to assume that this that our forefathers secured has been a thorn in the side of would-be tyrants ever since the Second Amendment was adopted.

I have two comments. Todd says “it is not impossible to think that a tyrant … could possibly rise to power in America…” I think he’s already here. Thanks for not waffling on that, Mr. Todd.

Secondly, law-abiding citizens won’t submit to background checks. They’ll just do business underground, just like the criminal element, by dealing with friends whom they know and trust. And I don’t view that as a bad thing, either. This is a war, and it’ll be good to know who on our side can be trusted.
