Re: “Gun Control Supporters Concede Defeat on Background Checks

Jana Beagley: Imagine if all the invasive and inconvenient things you did for childbirth had had no impact on whether or not you or your child would survive the experience. Would you not think that it was a gross violation of your privacy and rights, if you were forced to do it by a government that had no idea how to make childbirth easier and safer?
Background checks don't work. I could go into detail about how they consistently fail, but I'll sum it up with this: possession and misuse are not the same thing, and the laws requiring background checks are written as if they are.

Re: “Gun Control Supporters Concede Defeat on Background Checks

*sigh* So, there's already a law, on the federal level, that says that felons cannot possess guns..... and you want to pass a *second* law that says the same thing, but on the state level. Why will two laws that do the same thing achieve results that one law did not alone? If it's an issue of your state failing to enforce the federal law, why don't you change things so that your state enforces federal law? Does that not seem a more reasonable approach?
Further, what mandate does the *court* have to decide *medical* matters? If it were that the state must report people who a medical panel deemed dangerous or mentally ill, that would be more reasonable.
