Background checks

Seems the FBI is turning loose one of its databases to be used for NICS checks. This database has 400,000,000 records and would have supposedly stopped the Charleston shooter.

    The article makes a big deal about how NICS is supposed to be overworked, because it’s claimed to be so hard to find actual conviction records. I rather doubt that. But in any case, it then points to a bill that eliminates the 3 day time limit on NICS checks. It comes from one of the usual suspects, Blumenthal of CT. No surprise — the hidden agenda for bills like that is to let the government effectively ban gun sales by slow walking approvals.

    Is 400 mil more records than people? Um, is it simple enough to call it tyranny yet or is there some magic threshold?

    Someone ran Charles Manson through NICS a couple weeks ago. He passed.
