2 things off the top ...
You realize background checks are just as much for mentally un fit people as they are criminals. What's wrong with that idea
1. define 'mentally unfit'
2. agents of the government have no authority to snoop in medical files, period.

Revolting against such legislation may be the right mindset, but why were there no such rallies/revolts for the signing of the NDAA indefinite detention provision? Which is about to be signed again, with an even worse provision....
People take their 2nd amendment rights very seriously, but the NDAA completely undermines the 5th & 14th amendment. The "Patriot" Act also undermines the validity of multiple amendments. Neither of these were barely contested on the level that these new gun bans are. & These gun bans aren't even blanket bans. The aforementioned laws completely circumvent 'guaranteed' Constitutional rights.edit on 17-1-2013 by Raelsatu because: (no reason given)
but these people are acting like the president just wrote an EO to take guns away!

Manditory background checks simply means that gun ownership is no longer a right, but a privilege granted by the government.
So to be clear, you are against background checks
those who want to protect their 2ND ammendment rights
