Christian Oberender, Convicted Killer, Gets Gun Permit And Buys Arsenal Of Weapons: via HuffPost http://huff.to/11LJN3V Why not have this permit driven rather than background check driven. Put the onus on buyers to get a permit which is tied to their driver’s license, photo, fingerprints and ssn, which is good in any state until revoked. It could be a card with photo and bar code. Then rather than a new background check for every purchase of guns or ammo, a simple scan can be done each time and the issue resolved in seconds. It can be set up to give full faith and credit to licensing in other states, so if you have concealed carry in one state you have it in all states with concealed carry. I really don’t like the idea of people getting criminally charged for failing to take some pro forma action with the bureaucracy. There is a lack of criminal intention. So it can be done in a way to improve fairness to gun owners and reduce administrative overhead while improving safety. The application for such a permit can have a requirement for a search of medical records for each prior state of residence for psychiatric issues, with appropriate one’s flagged. Where there are modern databases that should be easy to do quickly with minimum invasion. If the list of visits and prescriptions includes no psychiatrists or psychologists and no prescriptions for antipsychotics or anti-depressants there is no need to review the actual file.
