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?
No I like where they drew the line in the sand on what you can and cant own. You already couldn't own a rocket launcher. They just moved the line. If a criminal had a chose of going to the black market or ordering online. Which one is easier. Now this law takes away one choice making it harder. Im all for that.
