house Bill H.R. 1324

Should the National Data Exchange Be Added to the Federal Database for Gun Purchase Background Checks?

Argument in favor

While the FBI is already planning to give background check examiners access to the National Data Exchange (N-DEx) when background checks are delayed, that isn’t enough. Instead, N-DEx should be integrated into the NICS system, just like the other three databases that comprise NICS, so it’s queried every time a background check is completed.

There is no reason why a background check shouldn’t be able to search through all relevant databases. A background check needs to be as complete as possible to ensure public safety when someone is purchasing a gun.

Why not. If someone has nothing to hide then they shouldn’t have a problem running through a combined database. Sounds like a really good idea actually.

👍🏻 HOUSE BILL H.R. 1324 AKA “the FAST NICS Act’’ 👍🏻 I’m in complete agreement with and recommend the passage of the HOUSE H.R. 1324 AKA “the FAST NICS Act”which would improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) system by having it also search the National Data Exchange (N-DEx) database when conducting criminal background checks for potential gun purchasers. While the FBI is already planning to give background check examiners access to the National Data Exchange (N-DEx) when background checks are delayed, that isn’t enough. Instead, N-DEx should be integrated into the NICS system, just like the other three databases that comprise NICS, so it’s queried every time a background check is completed. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻🇺🇸👍🏻🇺🇸👍🏻. 3*16*19.....

Argument opposed

This bill is unnecessary, as the FBI has already announced plans to integrate the National Data Exchange (N-DEx) into the national instant criminal background check for gun purchases. It’s already expected that this will happen by 2020. While the FBI isn’t planning on integrating N-DEx to every NICS check, it isn’t clear that that’s needed anyway.

Not to sound paranoid, but I feel there is a hidden agenda here.

Absolutely not. This is not a communist country and and the US government has already assumed to take power from the people it should have never taken. For example; The Patriot Act, laws that allow the US government to confiscate bank accounts without due process, hate speech laws that liberals get to define to silence their opposition. So absolutely not!

    Everyone is so worried that the government is going to "take our guns away". No. That's not what this is about. All of the knee jerk reactionist just need to calm down. This is not going to cure our gun issues. But it might help. If this bill can prevent even just one horrible incident, it is worthwhile

    When doing a background check for purchasing or receiving firearms by gift, transfer or whatever, ALL relevant databases should be checked before sale or transfer is allowed. If someone is fearful of a thorough background check maybe they have something to hide.

    Why would we want to allow gun sales without knowing issues of the people who are buying guns? Who thinks it’s a good idea to make life threatening judgments without information to make them? Yes, information should be cross referenced and fully accessible.

    There's nothing "communist" about keeping killing machines out of the hands of dangerous people. The same people who could be let out of jail early for "good behavior".

    While being what is typically considered “liberal” on many fronts, I believe in the privilege to bear arms. I say privilege because I do not believe it is a right for those who have shown they have not earned that privilege. Vetting who has the privilege should utilize the best data we have and that utilization should be required, not depended upon (I.e., the FBI has plans to do this anyway...), and we should ensure that whatever the plans of any law enforcement agency we are doing the best due diligence before we arm our citizens. Please vote yes to require this.

    There's so much to say about this idea. 1: guns are an inherent right from birth, just as swords as knives as our fist are tools of both good and evil. Self defense is a human right. Government, especially the U.S government of all, has no right to impede on these rights. The second amendment both in it's historical context and present are very clear that any gun laws are an infringement on our birth rights. If we followed the United States constitution though, we wouldn't be having any debates over who is allowed what rights. We wouldn't have the DoJ, the FBI, the NSA, the CIA etc etc etc... I dream of a constitutional America again, and I know my representatives do not represent my best interest but the interest of what will get them elected again. Liberty is dying in the land of the free, and I truly hope to see more laws repealed in the future than more rights taken away. Every unconstitutional law is an immoral act against the sovereign birth rights of every human being. We can do better, make freedom great again.

    Background checks? What good are they when police and school system don’t act when an overt obvious disturbed person is constantly raising red-flags and Nothing is done to help that person and protect those around him? Parkland o name just one example. All Americans should expect law enforcement agencies, which missed opportunities to stop not just the Parkland shooter, but also the shooters in the Charleston and Sutherland Springs churches and the Orlando nightclub, to be able to protect us. You can forgive us if we don’t believe that giving federal law enforcement officials more authority is the solution to shootings they bear some responsibility for. - The school resource officer who fired at and stopped the murderer at Great Mills High School in Baltimore. - The NRA instructor Stephen Willeford who shot at and pursued the gunman responsible for the Sutherland Springs church massacre. - The Spartanburg County SC man with a concealed carry permit who shot the gunman, Jody Thompson, responsible for wounding three people. Gun control disarms the law-abiding and only the law-abiding, by definition. Self-defense is a basic human right and, clearly, guns are the only reasonable means for the average citizen to exercise that right.

    The second amendment is rendered useless when gun sales are subject to government approval.

    There's no reason why this shouldn't be passed. It is "in the process" of being done. There's no reason why Congress shouldn't support this action with a vote.
