It would also be noteworthy to point out that most of these crazed shootings involved the mentally ill, but they are not added to the list that is used in background checks. The existing measures that we already have in place are not utilized or enforced, but Democrats want to create new laws that scoop up law abiding citizens. Talk of gun owners registering their guns has been discussed. I say there is never a reason for gun owners to ever register or be placed on any government list. There can be only one logical reason or purpose for doing so, gun confiscation.
