      •  Why not mandatory? (6+ / 0-)

        If its true, as Wayne said, that criminals won't undergo a background check, then any option that isn't a background check is by definition allowing criminals to buy guns, and anyone who is actually against criminals buying guns would insist on mandatory checks.

        That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
