The problem are guns being stolen from these wannabes who watch the “Terminator” movie and have too small wee wees and run down and blow their wad on the cool blue steel of a handgun then take it home so they can stroke it and fantasize. Of course, not bothering to save any money for the gun safe or even a trigger lock. Then a year later when they are bored of it, they leave it on the dresser in plain sight and the bad guy spies it through the window and breaks in and takes it.
Then a year later the gun is used to kill someone.
What universal checks allow us to do is track the gun back to small wee wee guy who made it available to the criminal element by his irresponsible ownership of it.

Comment to Gun background check hearing: Does bill close loophole or create unenforceable law?
[It’s another Markley’s Law Monday!
One might also ask this bigot if he has a citation for the research backing up his claim that this scenario is “the problem” and how background checks would improve his imagined scenario.—Joe]
Aside from Dickless’s fetish with our genitalia, it appears that he wants the victim of a crime to be held responsible (read: punished) for that crime, and for future crimes committed with the stolen gun. This does, of course, requires registration of firearms.
You can’t expect him to blame the criminal.
“they leave it on the dresser in plain sight and the bad guy spies it through the window and breaks in and takes it.”
Does this explain why Trayvon Martin was looking in neighbor’s windows the night he died?
By this logic, if my car is stolen and used as the get away vehicle that plows into a school playground, I’m responsible for all the dead children?
After all, I parked it on the street and the criminal got a good look at it and HAD to steal it. Clearly it is my fault or maybe we can blame the car itself.
Never submit to registration. It will be perverted and used against you. When they come for your firearms, the laws they use will not justify the action. The Second Amendment trumps silly confiscation laws.
Braden Lynch: It’s illegal here to leave your keys in the ignition unattended, i.e., against the law to make it easy to steal your car. As an aside, an aquaintence left his car in long-term parking at O’Hare (Chicago, that mecca of criminality!) for a week or two, unlocked, with the keys in the ignition. On his return, he was disappointed to find it was unmolested. Criminals: don’t count on ’em to do what you want.
Maybe they thought it was a honeypot?
IF this argument had ANY truth in it then Americans would have been extinct decades ago.
Actually, this guy isn’t really blaming guns, is he? He’s blaming “the Terminator movie”. (Presumably only the first one.)
The obvious solution is to ban the Terminator movie.
