    Everything you just posted, above is a lie.....and again...you can't explain how background checks actually stop criminals and mass shooters......you just can't.....

    Op-ed in the New York Times: Background Checks Are Not the Answer to Gun Violence - Crime Prevention Research Center

    The background check measures before Congress aim to improve enforcement of existing law and increase such reporting by imposing financial penalties on government officials whose agencies fail to provide required information. That’s a good goal, but any proposal should also fix another major problem with the background check system: false positives that stop law-abiding people from getting weapons that they might need to protect themselves and their families.

    The background check system confuses the names of law-abiding individuals with those of criminals, resulting in thousands of “false positives” every year. Relying on phonetically similar names along with birth dates just doesn’t allow for much accuracy.

    Ronnie Coleman, a Virginia resident, was not allowed to buy a gun in 2012 because another person from his hometown in Texas who had a felony conviction also had a name and birth date “close enough” to his to cause a denial. Mr. Coleman was advised to get a unique transaction number from the background system to prevent this confusion in the future, adding another bureaucratic step to the process.

    Between 2006 to 2010, the last period for which more comprehensive annual data on the denial of firearm applications by the background check system are available, there were 377,283 denials. But the federal government prosecuted only 460 of those cases, leading to 209 convictions, mostly on charges of providing false information. There was a similarly small number of state prosecutions resulting from the gun purchase denials.

    Why didn’t more of those denials lead to perjury prosecutions? According to my analysis, the reason is simple: a high percentage of cases are dropped because the applicant was wrongly denied clearance to buy a gun.

    Many of those people are trying to buy guns to protect themselves. “This incredibly high rate of false positives imposes a real burden on the most vulnerable people,” said Reagan Dunn, the first national coordinator for Project Safe Neighborhoods, a Justice Department program started in 2001 to ensure gun laws are enforced.. . . .

    That is stupid......

    Gilroy.... rifle and magazine....3 dead.

    Russian Polytechnic shooter....... tube fed, 5 shot, pump action shotgun...... 20 killed, 40 injured...

    It isn't the gun you doofus....it is the free time the killer has in the gun free zone, against unarmed people before someone points a gun at him and makes him stop.....

    Moron..... Better background checks? Criminals use straw buyers who can pass any background check, you dumb ass, or they steal their guns....bypassing all background checks........and mass shooters can pass any background check, or they too steal their guns...you doofus...

    The only reason to demand universal background checks, since you were just shown they will not work....is so you can then come back, and stampede the uninformed again, and demand universal gun registration, which is your real goal......

    Gun grabbers don't care about right or wrong.....or the Constitution.....no matter how much they fake that they do.

    Their latest ploy......."Oh don't be ridiculous!....no one wants to take away your guns".....BS. That's the ultimate goal even if the individual stating it is clueless.

    In order to achieve their "Utopia", as was done in Venezuela, Cuba, China, NK etc etc etc....the population MUST be unable to put up any meaningful resistance.

    That has made the USA a particularly difficult nut to crack....but they won't give up....ever.

    But they'll settle for one little increment at a time....little by little.

    The only people who support mass shootings are those who believe gun free zones are a good idea.
    After all, its hard to push for more gun control if there aren't fresh bodies to stand on.
