    California's gun background-check system could be national model

    <img border=0 src="http://extras.mnginteractive.com/live/media/site568/2013/0130/20130130_052728_newbackgroundgraphic650.jpg">

    Every day for the past 22 years, California's background checks have stopped about a dozen felons, mentally ill people and others from buying guns.

    When prospective gun buyers stride into California gun stores such as Ron Kennedy's Canyon Sports in Martinez, they must swipe their driver's licenses or state IDs. That sets off a review process that runs their names not only through the same FBI criminal database other states use but also almost 20 other sources, from mental health records to DMV data. It's a check more rigorous than any other state's.

    California is also one of only two states -- Rhode Island is the other -- requiring such checks not only for purchases from licensed gun dealers, but also for all purchases at gun shows, or even if you're just buying a gun from a neighbor.

    For those reasons, California's universal background check system is being held up by gun control advocates as a model for the rest of the country. Yet in the emotionally charged national debate that has ensued since December's massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school, whether implementing such a system nationwide would prevent similar tragedies and gun crimes remains a bitter point of contention.

    --------cut----------------

    It's true that California does, unlike many states, retain information submitted for background checks for handgun purchases. And next year it will start retaining that information from long-gun purchases.

    Thanks for the topic. California is thorough when it comes to background checks...they are a good model for BC's.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    You are correct about them being the model.

    They are the model for how to run a system to infringe on the Second Amendment. California is a disaster, the very model of irresponsibility and lawlessness. In California, the people have truely learned how to vote themselves largess out of the treasury. The government there is unsustainable. They are on a race to the bottom, of what state can be the most irresponsible first.

    They are one of the few states that has no protection for the right to keep and bear arms in its state constitution. The reason for that is clear. They wanted to be able to disarm Hispanics and Chinese.

    Do you realize that California does not allow open carry?

    No argument at all with your first paragraph, but the reason that is clear to me is that the majority of the state is composed of left-wing, liberal-"progressives" who have benefited and legislated the state into bankruptcy. California is the state after which our current government is desperately attempting to model the entire country. Pax...

    I've been to that damn state, and hated it...which is why I CHOOSE not to live there. If you don't like California laws, move.
