Police no longer have the right to ban someone they consider unsuitable from owning a gun. People now only have to pass background checks, such as the absence of criminal convictions.

If they have no convictions and can pass a background check, what, exactly, makes them unsuitable?

Lack of celebrity status or not a member of the government

Most likely, the fact that they want to "own" a gun. Some LE orgs, especially in enemy territory don't want anyone to own a gun but them....

Given the source of many gun laws, it's often the person's complexion or heritage. Best examples being the GCA of 1968, which is based on the NAZI Germany gun bans, and of course, NY's Sullivan Law.

When did they?

"Police no longer have the right to ban someone they consider unsuitable from owning a gun. People now only have to pass background checks, such as the absence of criminal convictions."

Typical liberal deliberate confusion of rights and powers.

Police no longer have the *power* to ban someone they don't like from owning a gun.

People always had the right to own and carry a gun, the police just had the power to arrest them for it, because our cowardly courts would not uphold the Constitution.

Here, let's play with that a little.

Police no longer have the right to ban someone they consider unsuitable from owning a gun publishing their idiot ideas. People now only have to pass background checks, such as the absence of criminal convictions.

Try that on for size, Leftie weenies.
