    Antis want 'Universal background checks'...How about this?......

    Instead of involving FFLs & NICS in every transfer. Just make every persons driving license have the picture show 'legal' buyers face front & prohibited persons picture done in profile?

    That way when a LEO stops someone, they know right away that the person is either legal or illegal.....& any gun seller can see the same.
    That way no NICS check needs to be done & no chance of registration can result. If the buyer doesn't have the license.....then they have to go thru the NICS check.

    Simple, easy & effective.

    Anybody see a problem with this?

    Many states are giving illegal immigrants drivers licenses, so how do you do a background check?

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    They would be 'prohibited' & their picture would be in profile. If picture is in profile they can't buy a firearm.

    I believe there have been attempts in the past to issue different color driver's licenses to felons and other prohibited folk but it was denounced as "discriminatory" by the usual suspects.

    The Left isn't interested in crime control. They just want to achieve their utopia and disarm everyone.

    It would make perfect sense that if you have a Concealed Carry Permit you would not have to go through a UBC since you went through one to get your permit. Of course, since it makes sense this would never happen.

    Here in Nebraska if you have your CHP you can buy a gun and leave with it that day with no background check, just filling out the customary Federal paperwork.

    Anybody that pushes for UBC, ask them if they would mind an annual warrant less search of their home.

    Back round checks are just a back door way of keeping track of what you have. It has already been shown that those checks they do now .The ones that are suppose to just clear or prohibit you, well they have kept records of the serial number of every weapon and pinned it to your name.
    Why not try enforcing the laws you already have for about 5-10 years then we can meet and talk about it

    To the OP - It won't work, because the ACLU would be all over it. Take the current situation in NC trying to issue a license under the same exact concept (though not for purchasing firearms, but to identify a class of person who is 'different', and illegal in this case).

    In addition to writing your legislators, you can write the people on the committees that are working on these issues. Maybe we can influence the discussion is our way.

    I suggested adding Adjudicated Mentally ill persons to the NICS checks, but NO UBC or other Gun Control.

    The names are listed in the WAPO article (link above). I wrote all of them this morning. How about you?

    Don't care if it is 'discriminatory'.....That's the point of not allowing prohibited persons from purchases. That is discrimination.

    Once the government passes this, do you really believe that your 'exemption' will still be allowed? No, you will have to pay for a FFL transfer which will add to delays in getting your purchase completed & the very real chance of registration.

    Again, I don't care if the ACLU gets their collectivist panties in a bunch......They started this with trying to stop the non-existent 'gun-show' loophole. Why isn't the ACLU on our side of this? They should be complaining for OUR SIDE!

    Can you spot the difference?

    Before and after; how UBCs will work in criminal transactions:

    The main problem I can see is: There would be no easy way for the gov't to create a list of who owns what. We all know that would increase crime and mass shootings.

    So what you are saying is that everyone who wants a drivers license must first submit to an NICS check...No thanks.
