Hmmm, . . . untrue. I've had my background checked for various reasons at least 5 times in the past 10 years. I'm neither a "criminal who do[es] not wish to be found," nor one who wishes to abuse such a database. Nonetheless, I object. This proposeal is one short step to being asked for "papers" on the street.
