It seems like they all either forget or omit the fact that everything the government has regulated, or deemed illegal, is very easily accessible through the black market. Do they think that "Billy Criminal" is going to conduct a background check when he sells a stolen gun to "Johnnie Criminal" if they enacted universal background checks?
I would suggest that the politicians don't care what Billy &Johnnie do. Criminals are little or no threat to them. What they want is to make sure that anyone who is able to think for themselves is disarmed. The lack of reporting in this case and many others where, like Ft
Hood, the problem was known well in advance, clearly says that the goal is not public protection but public control.
