Of course, in order for a background check to even be performed a gun has to be purchased legally. Hence, it is the laws already on the books that pertain to illegal sales that need to be enforced.
Vehicle related deaths in the US 2009, nearly 34000, homocide gun related - around 9000. Are cars just one large "Christine" like virus in our midst? Should our broke nation fund a multi-million dollar study to find out?
What stats don't tell you is how many deaths guns prevented. The concept of live virus vaccine wasn't mentioned in the article...which renders it - inane. Which, in the current climate means...funding will be dumped into any related "study".
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
