    Or our DMV records could simply list "gun ok" and gun dealers could run our licenses through a reader and this simple firearm certification system would tell you if the buyer is ok or not ok to buy a gun.

    But the fact is the only folks who are opposed to universal background checks are folks who want it to remain easy for criminals to get guns through private sales.
    the gun banners oppose this because it does not require universal registration to work

    have you ever bee to a felony ARRAIGNMENT--one of the first things they do is to require the defendant surrender his passport if he is released on bond. I just saw a guy arraigned who was an armed pilot who refused to turn in his badge and issued firearm when he lost his job as a pilot. The Federal Air Marshall testifying at his detention hearing noted that the state of Ohio had already revoked his CCW permit. It would be easy enough for the court to take someones DL and immediately have it changed to NO FIREARM

    However, I think gun extremists would oppose this, simply because it would stand in the way of criminals being able to buy guns.

    Only two groups of people would be seriously affected by Universal Background checks: criminals and the seriously mentally impaired. These are the folks pushing for no new gun laws.
    how many pro gun advocates (gun extremists to NY left-wingers I suppose) want criminals buying guns? who benefits the most from criminal misuse of firearms? we NRA members or people wanting to ban guns

    we oppose universal registration or the government knowing what guns we have. I have no problem with the suggestion that we have a mark on our State DL and REQUIRING private sellers to see that before they sell you a gun. No registration and if I am a felon and I am caught and I rat you out or you were the original buyer of the gun and thus you are listed on the 4473 which can be found, then you get in trouble.

    OMG there are just not enough emotes allowed on this forum to laugh at just how funny and hypocritical this statment of yours is. YOU are the one that claimed that there was 100 years of courts saying that the 2nd amendment only applied to militias YOU are the one that brought it up and now when I ask for proof via court cases of your statment you call it irrelevent? You've just exposed how much of a liar you are Catawba.
