No background checks for everyone. You have to prove you are NOT a criminal

Just sounds wrong to me.

Further, it is a damnation of our criminal justice system. If it is a criminal buying the gun, should the person be in jail? IF it is an ex-criminal haven't we determined the person is safe to integrate back into society? Why are they being singled out

Hell, they can help chose who is the leader of the country, but aren't allowed to own a gun?

Same goes for the mentally ill? We think you are so crazy you might kill people so who do you think should be President, and hey, why don't you grab the keys and get behind this 2000 pound projectile, we trust you, and by the way if you feel like it you can work at a burger joint with poison in the basement and burgers on the grill, but we know you'll be fine?

IF we have dangerous criminals, and mentally unstable dangerous folks all over the damn place, I want something a whole lot better than invading the privacy of every person who wants to buy a gun to be done.
