You need to familiarize yourself with The Real ID Act...here's a thread I did on it, chock full of some eye opening information. Maybe it will temper your attitude on background checks. BTW, is your State one that has implemented The Real ID Act....better hope not....
I like the system the way it is.
Well I suppose I am not as libertarian on this detail as you are.
Though I believe class 3 weapons should be handled the same way as semi-autos. I believe we should be able to own destructive devices such as grenades
Class 3 is just a method to continue to enrich the Feds.

Well the difference is the NICS check has a direct, fast effect. Whereas the Class 3 process is long, difficult, and extremely expensive.
I would feel better about NICS if it were voluntary(and I bet the industry would use it).
I would also feel better about it if individuals making sales privately could have access to it. I personally would feel better if I could check a guy/gal I'm trying to sell a personal weapon to.
With respect, why on earth should American citizens need to legitimately possess hand grenades ?
What are you going to do with them ?
Why stop at hand grenades ? Perhaps you should be allowed RPG's too ?
it's an American thing.
