44. back ground checks only work if they're used
my little sister bought a rifle for her ex-husband while they were still married and even after she told them it was going to be a gift, whoever sold her the rifle didn't care--they only did the background check on her and of course, it came up clean

if they had done the background check on the husband, she would have never been allowed to buy it for him

people like him, who have a history of violence, should never be allowed to have guns--I don't care if he paid his debt to society, he is still a danger--my little sister can vouch for that--to the effect that "I'll find you wherever you go"
