I was going to write this Diary last night, but it was late by the time I got home and I was tired so I figured I'd hold off until today.

I really don't understand why certain people are complaining about background checks to purchase a gun.  After all, when you apply for many jobs nowadays you have to undergo a background check and some even do drug testing.  Along with jobs, if you apply for a credit card, mortgage, apartment rental you have to undergo background checks also.  If you have no problem undergoing these background checks then you should have no problem undergoing a background check to purchase a gun.

Therefore, LaPierre, Senators that want to filibuster a vote on background checks or those in Congress who just see background checks as a evasion of privacy (even though I think you had to undergo a background check before you ran for Congress because your Party probably wouldn't support a criminal for any Congressional seat) you can just shove it.  You're hoping that we don't see the connection but it's right there in your face. If you can't approve background checks then don't apply for credit cards, mortages or try to rent an apartment.    

Have to go out and will be back in about 2 hours or so.  Sorry to do this but I wanted to get this Diary published.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Those are mostly not required by the government, and yes I object to most of them.

    It's not the background check, it's the registration.  Scotch that, and you've got a deal.

    what the debate is about.  If they just wanted to do universal background check, it would have already been a done deal.

    Just registration.

    A national FOID card would do everything both sides of the issue desire... Provide for universal background checks, close the gunshow loophole, and register not the firearm, but the FOID numbers of the buyer and seller involved in a transaction.

    Thats compromise, neither side gets exactly what they want, but everyone is in better shape then beforehand because what they get provides for closer examination of who has access to firearms instead of what firearms they happen to have.
