The purpose from day one of all this gun talk legislation is to get a background check done on everyone that buys any type of gun. A background check means a NATIONAL DATABASE on gun owners. To find out who has guns now you will also have to have a background check when you go and buy ammo. This is what these bastards are after. Then when the time comes to take your weapons, all they have to do is look on their database and they know who has the guns. The NRA should NEVER agree to any type of gun legislation. NONE.
They always knew there was never a chance for the bogus "assault weapons ban" to pass. And they knew that even if it did, it wouldn't do a damn thing anyway.
The "universal background check" is what they're really aiming for:
That they are informed of every single legal firearms transfer that ever takes place in the entire country, period. Who transferred it, and who it was transferred to.
