Gun Control Advocates Try To Stop Newspaper Ads

Gun-control backers are asking Ohio newspapers to drop classified ads from unlicensed gun sellers.

Gun control advocates say the practice can put guns in the hands of people who would flunk the background checks required by federally licensed dealers.

The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence has written letters to Ohio's approximately 80 daily newspapers and followed up with calls to many of them.

At least six newspapers ban classified ads sold by unlicensed dealers or have other restrictions, and about ten are considering such bans, according to the gun control group.

A supporter of gun rights questions why dealers are being singled out when newspapers publish ads for other businesses where illegal activity could flourish.

Yes indeed, we get regular reports in the news-rags concerning the activities of the U.S. Congress...
