19. "Universal" bg tests are and have been supported in this group for years...

The problems center on:

1. Funding and effective operation; many people who fail current NICS tests are never investigated, or the paperwork (convictions, mental comp. findings) are not forwarded.

2. Commerce Clause issues: Can the feds require ALL citizens in EVERY state to follow a fed standard, esp. With private intrastate sales? If the controllers at the fed level thought there was no issue, they would have passed a universal NICS in a NY second. Amy suggestions?

3. Aggressive prohibitionist efforts to get at NICS data base end convert to a national registry. This is where a state FOID may be a better approach.

As you can see from at least one poster here, you and this worthy issue may be Scarlet Lettered with "NRA apologist, or "NRA talking point."

Thanks for posting.
