Are you against background checks for firearms? Why or why not?

I know this topic can get heated. I'm hoping we can share our opinions, without name calling, or being rude to one another though! :)

 All for them, but I believe that here in Canada you have to have one for criminal and mental health, I could be wrong though. lol *runs to google* lol

 

Yes here they do, and its a 28 day waiting period before you are considered to be allowed to own a gun, and you need firearm traing and safety.

But I still stick to that I think everywhere else should have this in place.

I guess it's a good idea, but I've never known someone who failed a background check. Not sure all the people who have them should have them.

No way!  Why would anyone be against that?  I don't want some crazy walking around with a weapon.

I am all for them, and also for people to have psychological evaluations before they get to own a gun (yes, I am fully aware that there are ways to fool a psychological evaluation)

Nope.  I would have no problem undergoing a background check if I were purchasing a firearm.

I am not against it,I am sorry but someone who has a mental illness should not be aloud to have or use a firearm. Point blank and the word "firearm" speaks for it's self.

I am with you all the way but 28 days is not long enough for a background check.
