Poor marks for Texas gun control are good news to one local businesswoman. The report card comes from the Brady Campaign to prevent gun violence and ranks the lone star state near last place when it comes to controlling firearms.
The president of the group's Texas based organization tells me what's most troubling is the state is without mandatory background checks on all gun purchases. Charli Stokes runs background checks on her customers, but says private people who sell guns should not have to do that. "Do you wanna keep the little eighty-year-old lady who had a revolver in her home from giving it to her son without coming down and paying a dealer to do that?" asks Stokes.
