senate Bill S. 2492

Should State Law Enforcement Agencies be Notified When Someone Fails a Gun Background Check?

Argument in favor

State law enforcement agencies should be notified when a prohibited individual tries to buy a firearm and fails an FBI background check. The FBI should notify agencies it runs background checks for.

I’m a proud NRA member and this is absolutely a common sense measure. If you know you’re not supposed to be buying a firearm then the police should know that you are trying to. If you don’t know, then the police can either explain to you why you’re on the list or clear you off if there is in fact a mistake.

This is exactly the kind of gun control that we are asking for. We’re not trying to take away everyone’s guns; we are trying to keep them out of the wrong hands.

If you honestly want to keep criminals and potential mass shooters in check this could in theory work. I don’t see this violating any individual right.

Argument opposed

If states want to be notified when a prohibited individual fails a gun background checks, they should run their own background checks like 13 already do without relying on the FBI to flag failed checks.

To what reason? They fail, then they are denied the purchase

I would not be permitted to purchase a gun because I’m a registered NYS Medical Marijuana program Caregiver for my wife, a registered NYS Medical Marijuana Program Patient. Under draconian NYS law, a marijuana user is “addicted to drugs”. Out law machine guns, duh.

No, Our Country is broke and the agency created will be as financial wasteful as ALL the agencies created before them. No one should be disqualified from protecting themselves and family from the corruption in our Communities across America. Simpleminded people whom believe elected officials do no wrong are a threat to Our freedom and draining the swamp.

    If someone fails a background check then they are probably a danger to society. We need to stop ignoring the mentally ill they are too dangerous.

    We notify law enforcement when someone on probation tries to leave their designated area, we notify law enforcement when a person on the no fly list tries to fly, as a passionate second amendment advocate I see no problem with this.

    I'm the strongest pro 2A person I know. This, however, makes perfect sense. It gets law enforcement a step ahead when something is amiss. Every second counts.

    Makes total sense. Why shouldn’t authorities know when people that shouldn’t be in possession of guns are trying to get them?

    No if he/she fails. No gun sold, no harm done. If there is a warrant for arrest perhaps yes.

    Being no expert, it would seem logical to me that all the state would have to do is check the federal registry if a question arises concerning qualifications.

    Extensive background checks for gun purchasing is indispensable. Let’s ensure that this is the standard in Maryland.
