Is the NRA's stance on background checks defensible?
During upcoming hearings on gun control legislation the head of the NRA is expected to argue that performing background checks on gun buyers is a waste of time because criminals won’t purchase guns legally anyway. The NRA will also be pushing for a loosening on privacy guidelines so a potential buyer’s mental health can be reviewed prior to a gun purchase. In your opinion are these positions defensible?
