This past week DJT (Donlad J Trump), responding to last weekend’s shooting incidences in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, called for “meaningful background checks” to be imposed at a federal level upon any American citizen who wants to make a retail purchase of a firearm.
(Article by John Farnam republished from AmmoLand.com)
As I listened, it struck me:
“Wait! We already have an instant background check system in place. Our NICS System has been in mandatory operation, nationwide, since 1998!”
Is our current NICS System suddenly “meaningless?”
Imitating his Democrat/socialist opponents, DJT never got specific, never told us exactly what he means by “meaningful” background checks.
Our current NICS System performs a thorough records check of a perspective gun purchaser’s criminal history.
Most felonies, particularly violent felonies, will instantly bounce the application, as will current arrest warrants and protection orders, and documented mental-health deficiencies.
We’re now left to wonder what additional information about an individual is to be added to the NICS-check, in an effort to make it “meaningful!”
Gee Mr President, just how “perfect” do I have to be in order to exercise my Second-Amendment rights as an American citizen?
Just how do I go about “proving” to your satisfaction that I’m not mentally ill, nor in another arbitrary category of citizens whom someone has offhandedly decided “should not have guns?”
