Is the NRA's stance on background checks defensible?

Asked by SuperMouse (30723 points ) January 30th, 2013

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?
