For years, gun right advocates have said universal background checks are a failure. We've made it very clear that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) has failed time and time again because states fail to report 100 percent of their criminal convictions to the FBI. Expanding a failed system isn't going to suddenly make it work better. If anything, it's just going to expand its failure.
In a rather shocking turn of events, the super leftist news outlet Vox admitteduniversal background checks are a failure...and Democrats need to move on.
Vox even cited a study conducted by the Violence Prevention Research Program (VPRP) at UC Davis and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to determine the impact California's gun control laws have had on homicide and suicide rates over the last 10 years .The result? The Golden State's gun control laws had absolutely no impact. Nothing changed.
The ironic part is the outlet tried spinning the study to say it's the implementation – not the background check system itself – that's the problem.
