Re: 5 year old given rifle as gift, kills 2 year old sister

Well, so you've even lost anti-gun crusaders Joe Scarborough and Piers Morgan on background checks.

Amusingly, we already have background checks and they can't work much better than the currently do, unless you live in the fantasy land where criminals selling guns to each other check each other for a valid ID and then call federal law enforcement for permission to commit a crime (you should push for bank robbery permits). The system fails to respond so often that honest private gun sellers will just assume that the buyer was just being victimized by Obama campaign operatives and go ahead and sell the gun anyway, taking care to pass it through three or four hacked identities to keep everything legal, when their not running background checks on their daughter's new boyfriend's family.
