If fixing the NICS database means greater reporting of marijuana convictions are you good with it? [View all]

Obama is expected to move to shore-up the instant check database.

Over a year ago the ATF announced that a permit for medical marijuana should be enough to place a person on the prohibited from gun purchase list.

The Office of Technology Assessment says an estimated 14 million records of users/addicts of prohibited substances are missing from the NICS instant check database...they estimate ~2 million records for persons prohibited for reasons of mental health are missing.

Among the 987K denials of purchases (prohibited people the system caught trying to make purchases) resulting from instant checks since Nov of 1999, persons denied for being users/addicts of such substance represent 8% of the total. The number of persons prohibited for mental health reasons represent 1.03%. Roughtly 1/8 of the permit denials to users/addicts.
