Neither are trivial. I think some sort of test say on the Constitution would be a better background check.

It's bad enough that politicians are bought by lobbyists, but buy votes from the people is just as criminal.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
