I am not against background checks. I am very against background checks being used as a supposed solution to a problem that is not caused by a failure in background checks in the first place.
Seriously what criminal is going to obey such a law? What criminal obeys the law now?
It's difficult to imagine that the powers that be are so stupid that they don't recognize the flaw in logic. Which, if any credit is given to their intelligence, means they have a different purpose in proposing a non-solution to a very serious problem. It's either that or our elected officials are some of the stupidest people on the planet.
Either way. It's not good for us.
