There is currently universal background checks for all gun purchases. This did not and would not have prevented any of the recent shootings, in fact one of the shooters purchased his weapon after a background check which he passed. This is just another ploy to get the purchaser to cough up some more money for a worthless intrusion to our lives. Also keep in mind, the gun/weapon does not kill people, it is the person that is pulling the trigger that does the killing. Also Reference Chicago, Milwaukee every day and weekend, numerous, senseless drug killings, I wonder if they went through background checks?
