UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS prevent unrestricted 'Private Transactions' of Truckloads of Perfectly Legal Assault Rifles and even 50 Caliber Sniper Rifles that are advertised as being able to "TAKE DOWN A JETLINER"
These weapons arm DRUG CARTEL and Criminal Gangs and TERRORISTS and provide MILLIONS to Gun Manufacturers who then Support the NRA.
The 'Deal' being Negotiated STILL will allow some of these secret ARMS DEALS but will help make them more difficult.
If you are NOT a Criminal or Insane then you can easily pass a Background Check. The Big Bad Government (which By The Way is YOU) has no interest in confiscating your Guns but WOULD like to know where they GO if they are STOLEN and used for CRIMES.
This isn't a COMPREHENSIVE set of Laws that will curb the epidemic of Gun Murder in this country; but it is a sensible START.

A boatload of guns were sent to the Drug cartels already compliments of the Attorney General. How can you beat that? Now the law abiding citizens get to suffer from this corrupt government.
