Let us put this in perspective - overall violent crimes are down since 1980; overall gun crimes are down since 1980; we have had some mentally unsafe people commit some high profile crimes, but media attention notwithstanding, those remain statistical outliers.

So, my opinion is that UBCs and non-adjudicated reporting to NICS are cures that are worse than the disease they would allegedly cure.

Edit: We gun owners often criticize the media for ardently supporting the First Amendment while trying to gut the Second. I find it quite hypocritical to support the Second, while trying to weaken the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth...
