The writers who love Barack Obama, Pete Visclosky and Joe Donnelly for wanting government-mandated background checks trust the government more than I do -- or the NRA does.
There is no way this government needs information on everyone who owns a gun. Let the states deal with it.
This feel-good legislation would not have saved one person from the mentally disturbed people that have committed horrific mass murders. Better mental health care is needed instead.
It is no surprise that Visclosky and Donnelly voted for this and for the disastrous Obamacare. Thanks to their votes, either people's insurance rates go up, insurance is lost or soon you'll be taxed on insurance benefits provided by the employer, or full-time jobs cut to part-time so employers won't have to provide it. Oh, and the government will know every ailment you have.
A no vote was right for both federally mandated background checks and Obamacare.
