Background checks don't work -- wait, what?


Foundation for Economic EducationA joint study conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of California at Davis Violence Prevention Research Program found that California’s much-touted mandated background checks had no impact on gun deaths, and researchers are puzzled as to why.

Note that this study was conducted in California, under their universal, mandatory background check laws, with a ton of other gun control laws already in place as well. California is gun control dreamland. But despite that, apparently those universal background checks had no impact on gun deaths.

Researchers are "puzzled" as to why. I'll tell them why. The people who follow a universal background check law are the people who don't commit crimes with their guns. The people who don't follow a universal background check law are either a) gun rights activists who don't commit crimes with their guns, or b) criminals.
