house Bill H.R. 2319

Closing the 'Charleston Loophole' by Adding the National Data Exchange Database to NICS Background Checks

Argument in favor

While the FBI is already planning to give background check examiners access to the National Data Exchange (N-DEx) when background checks are delayed, that isn’t enough. Instead, N-DEx should be integrated into the NICS system, just like the other three databases that comprise NICS, so it’s queried every time a background check is completed.

Anything that helps realistic gun control gets my vote. I don’t care if it is redundant or not. I don’t care if it is too little or too late, too inconvenient, too limiting or not. Background checks are a good first step that needs to happen to address at least part of the gun violence issues we have increasingly been subjected to. Next, we have to rid ourselves of guns capable of rapidly killing many innocent people. There is no need for these types of weapons anywhere in our society. None.

Do this while taking serious gun control. Ban assault style weapons. Ban large capacity magazines. Ban bump stocks. Start a 3 month waiting period. Raise the age to purchase/possess a gun to 70. Institute a $1,000 tax on each and every bullet made or sold. Background checks on every gun sale, no exceptions.

Argument opposed

This bill is unnecessary, as the FBI has already announced plans to integrate the National Data Exchange (N-DEx) into the national instant criminal background check for gun purchases. It’s already expected that this will happen by 2020. While the FBI isn’t planning on integrating N-DEx to every NICS check, it isn’t clear that that’s needed anyway.

American Citizens have Our God given right to bear arms. No Government has a right to deny this. background checks will lead to confiscation. This will violate due process of law. Republicans ignored the culture way in America. Now that the culture rot that GOP ceded to Dems has led to mass killings Now dems want to use the problem they created to deny Us of Our God Given Rights. GOP must grow a backbone, and stand up for America, and America's Exceptional Constitution, crowned with the Worlds' only bill of rights.

Gun control legislation is a scapegoat for the moral decay of the nation. Fatherless homes, substance abuse, lack of community, polite society and common decency are the cause of these issues. Taking a gun away from someone who had too many parking tickets is not going to stop premeditated murder and may cause a victim of domestic assault to be unable to protect herself. The problem with gun statistics is they never show how many murders, assaults, robberies, etc were stopped by guns. This data is not compiled. Removing rights always has unexpected consequences. Have a look at UK knife crime.

    It’s a start that is long overdue. Ban assault rifles and automatic weapons.

    I guess it’s something. Push for more. Ban assault weapons, and extended clips. Fund a federal buy back program. Require that local police not resell firearms. Set up a federal licensing requirement that gun owners have to prove they can handle a gun safely at a firing range before they can own a gun. Fund scientific research into the gun violence so congress can make rational and effective science based laws. Keep up the momentum.

    Anything to save lives! Rabid gun enthusiasts need to realize that, if the Second Amendment were the most important part of our government, it would be the First Amendment.

    There’s no actual reason not to do this. If the data’s available, it should be put to use to prevent crime. It doesn’t infringe on anyone’s rights to have their background check be complete when someone is trying to access it. Just because the FBI is already planning on helping doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be codified into law to ensure that data is always usable for preventing gun violence. You really can’t get too redundant in trying to create a safer country, as long as no rights are being infringed, which they aren’t

    Background checks should be as thorough as possible, or they aren’t very useful.

    Every other country has video games, low church attendance, mentally ill, and white supremacists. We have a mass shooting a week. We don’t let people have free access to dynamite, cyanide, or nerve gas for the same reason we must limit access to weapons of war.

    I like this idea. Unfortunately CRIMINALS don’t buy guns through proper channels. Anti gun lobbyist either don’t think things through or they want to DISARM AMERICANS AND AMERICA itself. This is a DANGEROUS GAME our Government is playing. How do YOU DISARM THE CRIMINALS??? How will you disarm the people with mental problems. How will people be designated as mentally incompetent to own a gun? Quite a few questions have not been answered or thought through in my opinion.
