Most of my liberal friends who want universal background checks really mean firearm registration. They will admit that background checks will not keep determined criminals from getting firearms, but they hope that registration, insurance, license fees, medical/mental health examination, mandatory safety training, expensive gun safes will dramatically cut down on the number of firearms in private ownership. That they feel will in maybe 20 to 30 years reduce gun violence.
When they give Obama a background check, I will be happy to give them mine.Especially if they find out why his SS number belongs to a dead man.
“Most of my liberal friends”
Liberals cannot and should not ever be considered ‘friends’.
Don’t you realize that?
Background checks are simply harassment.
If they were anything more than that, then the government would take the forms they have that felons signed presumably also with her fingerprints on them and at least attempt what should be slam dunk prosecutions. 70 out of the purported 70,000 means they’re not even trying to get the guys that are at least plausibly bad guys. They’re after everyone else instead.
Why do you have these “friends”?
