An inmate who identifies himself as Gary W. Bornman, wrote an open letter to the National Rifle Association thanking them for opposing background checks so he can illegally buy a firearm when he’s released.
Bornman sent the letter to The Courant, a Hartford, Connecticut, newspaper June 6 and claims to be holed up for bank robbery and weapons violations. Thanking the NRA for lobbying Congress in order to block recent gun control measures, Bornman writes:
“I, along with tens of thousands of other criminals, couldn’t do what we do without you.”
Apparently Bornman plans to hit up a gun show upon his release in order to buy weapons sans background checks.
“I fully anticipate being able to stop at a gun show on my way home to Connecticut,” writes Bornman.
