It seems to me that the main point that is argued against imposing background checks when purchasing guns is the concern that the government will use the individuals information against them some how. There seems to be a mistrust of our government. I am not going to say there is no reason to mistrust nor am I going to say there is a reason to trust our government. That is not the issue here. So here’s my proposal. Appropriate federal funds to finance the NRA and let the NRA build and maintain the database with the information that is submitted for background checks. Let the NRA have access to information that flags felons, those on the terrorist watch list, those on the no fly list, those convicted of domestic violence etc.
