Background checks are only as useful as the information in its database--Hence, for any such registering of guns and background checks to be useful, are you willing to give up all your expectations of privacy regarding your medical and mental health history to the US government to peruse?
If you ever had anti-depressant medicine, even for just after a major operation, or received mental health counseling because you were blue or dealing with grief, that could be the basis of some pencil pusher bureaucrat in government to determine by a strict set of rules that you cannot own a firearm. That's infringement without due process. The Founding Fathers would call it tyranny.
Oh, and maybe the government needs more information to add your background check to make such decisions! SUCH AS.... Failure to pay taxes on time, misdemeanors like traffic tickets, political affiliation that the Southern Poverty Law Center and Harry Reid deem radical and dangerous--the possibilities are endless for the government to take as much personal information about you, and decide if you can own a firearm. That's infringement without due process. That's Tyranny.
Also, doesn't it bother you in the least bit that government is not as conversely accommodating being transparent as it demands us to be? After all, if the Government has nothing to hide, what is it afraid of, hmmmm?
A bombing occurs, we blame the bomber. A drunk driver kills someone we blame the driver, We have a shooting, we blame the firearm?? LOGIC??? By all rights, pressure cookers, should undergo a background check to purchase, and the feds keep a record of use.
Has anyone looked into the dangerous UN treaty on firearms. This treaty is to be signed by the president making firearm ownership illegal and/ or very restrictive. Essentially a loophole to go around the Second Amendment. This is our president agreeing to other nations demands.
Answer me this - when was the last time you have seen the government willingly give up power? Why do so many people want to restrict someone's Constitutional Rights? I have yet to see someone say we should limit violence in movies or in video games. Why not? Protected speech. Just because you do not value a right, does not give you the authority to take it away from someone else who does value it.
