Why 'Universal Background
Checks' Aren't The Answer

By Cam Edwards. August 5th, 2019

The push for Senate passage of HR8, a "universal background check" bill that passed the House earlier this year, is in full effect, beginning with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanding Majority Leader Mitch McConnell bring the Senate into session to vote on the legislation.

Gun control advocates have chimed in as well, including Dr. Rebecca Bell, a pediatric critical care practitioner. I want to make it very clear here that I think Dr. Bell does lifesaving work, and I think that is an incredibly noble cause. My disagreement with her regarding universal background checks in no way takes away from that. But I do disagree with her. .....

The recent awful massacres have opened the flood gates for more 'gun control', including the so called Universal Background Checks. These are "really unenforceable, impractical, and would likely exacerbate existing problems in our criminal justice system, without preventing violent crimes or even increasing background checks themselves."
