Miggy, me old china, you always make a lot of sense in your posts, but not in this case.
Maybe we are misunderstanding each other. I'm not saying there should be no background checks. What I take issue with is that anyone who says that gun possesion is dictated by where you were born. That person is an Anti. Period.
But I should point out that many of the visitors here HAVE been through background checks and extensive ones at that.
There are also many countries out there who quite simply do not keep any information on its citizens in their police/law enforcement computers if they have no criminal history.
