Second-ranking House Republican supports improving the federal background-checks

Quote:...he supports improving the federal background-check system for gun buyers but stopped short of endorsing universal checks on all weapon purchases.

...Two GOP lawmakers from suburban districts announced plans to co-sponsor legislation to make gun trafficking a federal crime for the first time. The moves signal potential openings for bipartisan compromise on gun control....

...lawmakers could consider adopting a plan implemented by Virginia after the 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech. Since the shootings, the state has linked mental-health information to law enforcement databases used to conduct background checks for gun purchases.

“I think that we can take a lot of lessons from what Virginia did and put it in place at the federal level,”...

...When asked, Cantor stopped short of saying he supported universal background checks, saying only that “I am for making sure that we increase the quality of information in the database that is in existence already.”

I see nothing wrong with improving the data, as long as there is a truly viable process by which people have the ability to refute invalid denials. Trafficking should have always been a federal crime, then maybe someone would have done time for it.
