I don’t do recreational drugs so I wish these drug addicts with the “D” after their name would explain the difference between a background check and a “universal” background check. Does that mean they check all the other planets for criminal records too? Why not just do a “national” background check or an “international” background check. Just stay away from those “comprehensive” background checks. Anything that is “comprehensive” is really goofy and messed up.
So, maybe these background checks that supposedly weed out the mentally deranged could be used also as voting qualification...as long as we are “infringing” ya know. We don’t want crazy people who are too nuts to be trusted with a gun to be exercising their vote...who knows what sort of person they might vote in? Oh, too late I guess.
If they do background checks like they do security checks at our airports, they will soon be up our rears looking for personal information that they have no right knowing. What is this country coming to? No amount of information would have prevented Jared Loughner, James Holmes, Adam Lanza, Andrew Golden, Mitchell Johnson, or Charles Whitman from their mass murders. There is one, Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia Tech University shooter, who could have been stopped from his shooting rampage by his psychiatric diagnosis of selective mutism. However, Cho lied on his background check paperwork to purchase his 9mm Glock 19 semiautomatic pistol and Walther P22 semiautomatic pistol. All weapons were purchased legally.
