While I subscribe to the belief that most criminals are stupid people, I'm pretty sure most of them already know that they can't pass a background check and use alternate sources to obtain their weapons.

So if background checks will reduce the number of criminals acquiring guns, would you support a law that states those of us who pass a background check to have whatever weapon we choose?

Afterall, if these in depth tougher background check says I'm a safe, law abiding citizen with no mental problems...why can't I own a rocket launcher?
