    NICS and Full background check?
    Why is one more expensive?

    With full compliance costs should go down per user. And, yes; Fund that mandate.

    As far as mental health data goes, there is no reason to have to tell the retailer why the prospective purchaser is on the list.
    The purchaser will generally know he's not allowed to buy a gun. The Stigma arises when he chooses to defy the law.

    Unlike the TSA the gun purchasing public is participating in a specific activity with a specific screening process.  All we are trying to do is prevent someone who has already demonstrated that she should own a gun from buying one.
    The TSA is hoping to identify someone who might do some unspecified thing at some time during travel.

    We can assume gun owners will still be allowed to carry bottles of water in volumes over 3 ounces.
