Of course real criminals will skirt any measure brought out, but there are a whole slew of people out there who, while they may not have a criminal record, still have no business owning a firearm.

ITS NOT a cure all, and i never said that... on the other hand, its just a damn check, you have to have one at Cabelas, so why not the gun show?
Do you have any idea if a person is insane or not? Neither does the guy who is looking unload a weapon and sells to someone he doesn't know. Boom, crazy guy with a gun.

These checks prevent VERY VERY few people who shouldn't have access to a weapon from actually getting one. All they really do is aggravate the law abiding citizen and create a database that has no business being created.
