If it makes it more difficult for someone who wants to do harm to acquire a gun then it helps.
Since conservatives don't care about taking action after mass shootings... let's frame this in another area that they claim to care about... stopping terrorism.
What is to stop an Al Qaeda member from going to a gun show and purchasing guns to commit a mass shooting? They know they can go to a gun show, easily get as many guns as they want and not have to worry about a background check that would cross reference people on the Terrorist Watch List.
