I posted this about a year ago, but I thought I would bring it up again. Some liked the idea, others were venomously opposed. My take is that if we get non-gun owners involved in the check process, the government can't single out gun owners and will be less likely to gradually increase restrictions. Feel free to steal this idea if you like it. Have background checks performed on everyone at driver's license renewal. Those with a shady past would have a restriction put on their license (just like a "C" for corrective lenses). This does not identify gun owners, and ALL sales to non-restricted people should no longer require any paperwork (4473). Gun owners and non-gun owners would both get screened; if the government tried to gradually expand their definition of a restricted person, those that got flagged would be a huge population of angry people. If implemented right this would be less expensive than any current universal background check proposal. Those without a drivers license or a punched license would have to go through NICs at an FFL.
