Their records are . . . . shall we say slightly imperfect. I am a retired government attorney after 36 years of service. Also a Vietnam veteran. Got a couple of speeding tickets in my teens. When I applied for my Carry Permit it was initially denied because the background check said I had a domestic violence conviction in Alaska. Wow! On my way to Vietnam in 1969 our flight stopped in Anchorage. I was off the plane in the airport for several minutes. That was the only time I had ever been in Alaska. I arrived at Long Binh severa hours later. I was single and had been drafted while in law school. It turned out to be a data base error. No data base is perfect. Do criminals fill out 4473 forms? Gun control = law-abiding citizen control.
