A BG check doesn't stop a law abiding citizen from getting a gun,hence your right to own a gun is not being infringed.
The concern with BG checks is that states such as Colorado are abusing them as a backdoor gun registration route. Obviously the 2nd was written in a time when BG checks didn't exist, so it can be argued they shouldn't apply now.
I'm still amused with that how even though more people are killed by drunken drivers than are murdered with guns, nobody is calling for BG checks on booze purchases or wanting to limit bottle size.
