    So I am for this. As a Libertarian, I can assure you that the States have no duty to help the Feds prosecute you (well except for certain circumstances), but I think stuff that should go on the NICS should go on the NICS.

    Here's hoping they actually do something about the actual # of prosecutions.
    Bucky, guess I'm pretty much a "Libertarian". As far as I'm concerned, the Fed Gov't has its duties lined out in the Constitution.
    I DO, however, agree that we are a far cry from the antiquated, wilderness civilization we were in the 1770's and the Constitution may need a bit of "tweaking" here, there and yonder.

    The "Second Amendment" IS NOT one of those tweaks!

    I'm a firm believer that the NFA '38, GCA '68 and all following gun regulations and Form 4473 need to go the way of the "doo-doo" bird!
    But we all know THAT will never happen!

    Personally, I don't think there are enough honest, trustworthy and moral politicians left in D.C. that would/could address any changes to the Constitution in the same manner Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, Hamilton et al did in the 1770's!
    Most of today's politicians are the moral equivalent of Bill and Hillary Clinton!

      The U.S. Supreme Court has recently ruled that the Constitution permits the prohibition of firearms possession by criminals and the mentally ill.
      So there are "exceptions" to the Second Amendment, and the Fix NICS Act addresses those exceptions.

        The fourteenth amendment states:
        ______“All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

        So states can deprive a person of liberty through due process of law. Not an exception, a constitutional provision.

Gun registration is looming on the horizon,certification of compliance along with mental competency next.Future generations of gun advocates may not have enough voice to be heard or recognized to counter the dismantling of the 2nd amendment.
          I agree with most of your post above 6p with the exception of your remark about what appeared to be a slam against mental competency in regards to people being able to own guns. I know there will be some who will argue this point in regards to judging mental fitness, but there must be some benchmark to this issue. We can not possibly leave the door open to everyone being in ownership of guns, that being directly expressed regarding mentality. How that is going to be determined, I do not know, but let’s hope someone does.
