The database is meant to be used in conjunction with a method where if you're deemed ineligible to own a gun, you're not sold to. Just have a database wouldn't work obviously, it has to lead to something. The alternative would be to do nothing, and that's not working. Guns needs to be kept out of certain people's hands, i.e. those with mental illness. That's the point of the database. Of course, since most people are too ****ing stupid to understand why, they'd probably sell to them anyways, because hey, why should I do anything Obama says? Doesn't matter if he's right or not...
