Background Check (I don't mean with a Geiger Counter)

Universal background checks, what does it really mean?

It means if a father wants to give away his trusty Ruger 10-22 to his son, he will have to do a full background check on his son, cost about $200.   However, the Gun is only worth slightly more than that.

Plus, how can this possibly work? As my Dad gave me 4 firearms last year, he is in his seventies and don't hunt no more.... but who would ever know? What if this IMPOSSIBLE TO WORK" background check gets passed.... and then after its passed, dad decide to give me 3 more guns, and we write something up, transferred in 2011. Are we now both felons?

What if the neighbor wants to buy a gun, and I am forced to run a full background check on him? Many of these pistols, shotguns, rifles are only worth several hundred dollars. Now I run the background check, and the FBI send me a response which goes to the house next door by mistake, and that neighbor finds out the other neighbor had a felony for assault from 28 years ago, and spreads the word far and wide, effectively destroying that man in his own neighborhood. Huh, could be a problem right.

Or does the FBI not give out a reason, just a "no go", and the deal falls through, with both neighbors now suspicious over the other one.

The costs, implementation, penalties, the proof.

 The unintended consequences.

 Its all a big Charlie Foxtrot, and it won't keep guns out of the hands of criminals.      

How many of those Huffpost reader who were polled on whether they wanted "universal background checks" even thought it through as far as this writeup?

Maybe .5%?      Polls are wonderful, they sound great, yeah, save the kids.....and ignorance feeds into "this is only the beginning 2 shot" Biden, and they know it, if nothing else politicians know exactly how to play the public.
