    So....I have asked this question in the past and it has gone unanswered.

    Computers are used for violent, vicious crimes....kidnapping, rape, sex trafficking, child molesting......

    So why don't we require universal background checks for the sale of any computer product? Including any electronic device that allows internet access....Iphones, smart phones in general, Ipads, notebook computers......any electronic device...

    Many computer criminals who are captured by police are sentenced by judges who, as part of the sentence, ban them from using computers.....so, the only way to keep them from getting computers to molest children, sell women into slavery and murder....is to require a full, police background check...right?

    Thanks....what I want to know....why guns and not computers? Computers today are part of just about every major criminal network.....and terrorist network too........ sex traffickers, child molesters...and those crimes result in murder.....so why not require a federal background check for every purchase of an electronic device?

    Since computers are not covered under the 2nd, they are highly regulated by many gov't agencies to ensure they operate in a safe manner.

    What regulations are placed on my computer?

    Guns are extremely regulated from design to construction to use. There is almost nothing regulating the design of my computer.

    Um....no. Any criminal can walk into a store and buy any computer they want to continue their child molesting, sex trafficking, terrorism, identity theft.....why don't you support requiring all people to get background checks to make sure computers are not getting into the wrong hands?

    Computers must comply with many standards: electrical safety, electromagnetic emissions, network protocols, etc. I don't know of anyone physically harmed by a computer when using it as designed.

    Computers have an almost unlimited range of uses. Guns have only a few. Same with hammers, cars, knives, etc.

    We aren't talking safety standards, but nice deflection...we are talking access.....why shouldn't everyone go through a federal background check to buy an electronic device...if saving lives is the goal?
