“The idea that the FBI would have info in a database that would prohibit a gun transaction — but not make it available to the background check examiners — just doesn’t make sense,” said Frank Campbell, a Department of Justice lawyer who helped set up the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in the 1990s, during an interview with the Trace…

It won’t be long before such firearm background checks will be looking at our employment, income, credit history and more in determining if we are worthy of exercising our Second Amendment right to bear arms and protect ourselves. Yes, folks, socialism is alive and well in America.
