Let's consider the NRA claim that expanded background checks — even the scaled-back checks the bill specified, far from the universal checks the president wanted — would infringe the right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to own guns. The only way this could happen is if those allegedly responsible citizens are mentally ill, or are hiding criminal records.

If that were true, are these the sorts of people the NRA leadership would want to make up their "well-regulated militia"? I certainly hope not.

this is justanother case of politicians maintaining the dumbass status quo. classic of senators to cockblock human advancement by catering to yokels clinging to bygone fears of government takeovers.
