I agree. I don't think it's an invasion of privacy, either. It's not like everyone is going to see it, just someone who is trusting me with a deadly weapon. I understand that people don't want others to know facts about their lives, but to be fair, if I was selling a weapon, I wouldn't want to see in the news that a gun I sold to someone was used in a murder or robbery.
I have lived in 5 different states, all which have different gun laws and standards for gun purchases. For example, in TN I had to have a background check done before purchasing a gun and take a test to receive a gun permit. I'm in PA now and there is no background check and no test. I am going to own a gun in which ever state I reside. I'm not sure if the federal government really needs to be involved in standardizing the gun purchase procedure. I think that's the big issue. State to State I'm used to but federally mandated background checks? Not sure what I think. In all actuality I don't think people who are committing violent crimes with guns are registered licensed gun owners so it may be just another way to get money from us because of them.
