This is exactly why politicians are considered to be disingenuous no matter what the subject or political spin that they are selling. It would have been a great opportunity to emphasize the mental health and psychotropic drug dimensions of the problem and at least appear to be more balanced in his position instead of being the US chief gun grabber.

"..state should use the background check database to hunt down non-compliant owners.." To anonymous editorial scribe: It is illegal for such a data base to exist for just this reason. The data is retained at the FFL dealer and may be accessed on a specific Ser. # basis to track a specific weapon known to be used in a crime. Attempts by BATF to illegally copy these records en mass is being pursued in the courts. So much for trusting our federal government 'not to confiscate' registered guns.

A question occurred to me. Why does the UN care what happens re. guns in client countries? Is it for the day that they intend to occupy the US with their Blue Helmets?

Didn't seem to protect my relatives who were shot defenseless in their bed by intruders. Oh, I see it doesn't count since they survived.

I wish that I could believe that is the only reason that they are buying up large amounts of ammo (and arming all civilian agencies). Obama is making good on his 2008 campaign promise to develop a civilian force comparable to the US military. Did anyone not ask, 'Why'?

I believe that the FBI has complete access to data on all convicted felons. A bigger problem (especially in the case of school and other mass shootings) is lack of any reliable(not remotely possible) data on all mental cases who pose a threat. Even the psychiatric community does not claim any ability to predict the fraction of a percent of psychologically disturbed who will ultimately be dangerous to themselves or others.

We can always depend on Mr Sowell for a reasoned and sensible view on any subject he chooses to consider. I have read a considerable number of studies (including FBI and other government and government funded studies) which back up his statements. We can always count on political rhetoric to obfuscate the truth on any matter they address.
