Didn't Adam Lanza steal his mother's guns? And what about the guy in Arizona? Weren't his guns stolen or were they purchased?
Don't get me wrong, I think background checks are important for people who purchase a gun, but criminals don't exactly go through proper channels to get guns. You know...sort of like how a bank robber doesn't exactly get a job to get the money out of the bank or (in the context of banks) opens a savings account. So how will this eliminate the potential for more shootings? I'm sorry, but it won't do anything! People like Adam Lanza are crazy, heartless and will do anything to harm people. Just look at the fuckers who bombed the Boston Marathon. Do you think they gave a shit about abiding by the law? We need to combat this issue from another angle, not just with background checks.

The Police in most states are doing gun buy backs with no questions asked. So the criminals who are usually drug addicts too are turning in stolen guns for money to buy drugs. The need for the drugs is obviously stronger than the need for a gun. This buy back has been very successful & taken many stolen guns off the streets. Then the Police take the fingerprints off the guns, compare them to fingerprints of crimes in a database then arrest the criminal responsible.

They need to find a different way to deal with the illegal guns. Screwing with the law abiding people will not help.
