Iraq veteran wants us to know he had to pass a background check

I received an email from an Iraq veteran with a video on Vote Vets.
I needed to pass a background check to join the Marine Corps and carry an assault weapon in Iraq. We should require the same of anyone who wants to carry one at home. As veterans, we're familiar with these weapons and why its so important we keep them out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. That's why I'm proud to appear in VoteVets latest 30-second ad on the issue. With the Senate set to vote on gun legislation in a few weeks, watch the ad and tell your Senators that you support universal background checks.
Glenn Kunkel said that he had to pass a background check before he could carry his weapon. Why shouldn't everyone else?
