The Truth About Background Checks from Wayne LaPierre [VIDEO]

Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the NRA, released the following video on February 5th, 2015 in response to the Executive Action Obama plans on making on gun control.

In the video he mentions that mainstream media won’t say that the NRA fights for records of adjudicated mentally incompetent to be added to the National Instant Check System and that the NICS wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the NRA. Some of the problems he states are that millions of violent felons, criminals and adjudicated mentally incompetent are missing from the background check system, that 38 states report less than 80% of their felony convictions to the background check system and that in 2010, 80,000 prohibited people committed a felony by trying to buy a gun while only 44 were prosecuted for it.
