Can somebody explain to me what a 'background check' is?
What are they looking at, your police record? Prior addresses?
And who is the 'they' looking at this information? Where will 'they' store it? Who else gets access to this information?
Is this a new thing? Or have states had laws like this for purchasing a firearm already?
I know in NJ you have to register as a firearm's owner at your local PD and they have to approve it. They can arbitrarily deny you, or "lose" your application and sometimes the redtape involved in the process it can take 6 months to a year.
It's absolute BS. I would hate to see what we have here in the peoples democratic republic of NJ implemented nationally.
