And it still won't work because the fed will run it. There was a push not long ago to fix NICS but I think people in congress came to their senses and it died. Number 1), the cost was too great, and 2), it wouldn't have fixed a system that relies on states giving their data to the FBI. The states that run their own checks use NICS but they also use their own databases. One problem I see on the horizon is medical records. In this state you now have to sign a medical history waiver to purchase a semi-auto rifle and the state can then access your medical history. Anyone who does that IMO is a fool. There's a reason your medical records can't be accessed by just anyone. HIPAA. Any federal background check will have to include accessing medical records or it won't mean a thing as a tool to restrict looneys from access to firearms. Everyone knows this, including LE. I just saw a post on another forum from a cop that addressed that. Once LE has to deal with a mental case with a firearm it's too late for a good outcome. Somebody dies.
