    ...this than the "gun show loophole," you're mistaken in saying that people who can't pass a background check don't try to. According to the FBI, since background checks were instituted, 108 million have been done and 1.9 million people have been rejected.That's not a negligible number.

    But I completely agree that we need to overhaul the background check system and require all gun transfers to be included in it.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
