NRA: Why ‘universal’ checks won’t work

Posted on: February 11th, 2013

Criminals will not participate in them, and the mentally ill will not be included.

It seems so reasonable. In the minds of many, “universal background checks” for firearms transactions sounds like a good idea.

But is it really? No.

No idea is good if it doesn’t work. No legislation is reasonable if it fails to accomplish its purported goal — to prevent violent criminals and the mentally ill from acquiring firearms.

    It is easy to know why the law won’t work, God gave the Jews 10 laws to obey and they didn’t, so He gave them 613 more laws and the lawless couldn’t keep them, so writing one more law to those who don’t obey any and are lawless won’t obey that one either, that is the reason they are called out laws, ink on paper doesn’t scare them, it’s that simple to the simple minds who think these things up.

    This “background check”, like everything else government is mandates, will have unintended
    consequences. I have been shooting since the age of twelve, but just suppose I wanted to give a .22 rifle to my fourteen year-old grandson. The government would require a background check; paperwork, registration, and you can bet it wouldn’t come without cost.
    Actually, none of this would happen. The Government would tell me that no individual under eighteen could legally possess a firearm. A similar situation would transpire if I wanted to give a pistol to a nineteen year-old granddaughter to protect herself in her first apartment. Forget the bureaucracy; I would be forbidden to do so There would be an age twenty-one limitation.
    While this would concern me, it would not matter to the average criminal or gang-banger who would simply ignore this nonsense.

    The reason it won’t work and I can’t believe the NRA and everyone else keeps missing this is because people can just say that they did the transfer before the ban and on all older and pre ban guns there would be nothing to prove otherwise.
