How is the background check, as it exists today, going to predict those "who are likely to misuse firearms"?
It is not a prediction tool and was never meant to be one. All it does is verify that you are legally able to own the firearm you wish to be purchasing, that you have not done anything that would disqualify you from legal ownership.

A fine upstanding citizen is often the person who "misused a firearm"..see the thread abut the dentist's husband who started a gun fight and got shot.
Everybody is legally a fine, upstanding citizen until they get caught and convicted of breaking the law.
