This is an anti-criminal, pro-Second Amendment bill with bipartisan support that would require background checks for all commercial gun sales — including at gun shows and online — while ensuring that relevant criminal records are reported to the background check database.
While changes are needed to the nation’s background check system, this bill goes too far by requiring gun buyers to undergo background checks at gun shows, for internet purchases, or for transfers between friends. That is too great an infringement on their rights.
