My question involves criminal records for the state of: Mississippi and Illinois. Why don't felony records show background checks for Firearm owner ID cards? The Illinois shooter was allowed to buy a gun and a bunch of ammo. I read that the background check for that doesn't show his previous felony in Mississippi. This is insane!! Isn't that the whole point of background checks?.... to see if there is something bad there that should give reason for not letting wackos have weapons??!!!!
