The only way "universal" background checks would go anywhere is if there was a guarantee written into the bill that the records would not be kept. i.e. No Registration.

HIPPA type laws would also have to be changed in order for these checks to be worth a hoot anyway.

The Hilstrom bill is cosponsored by over half the members of the House. It's got bipartisan support. It would pass in a heartbeat if it hit the floor. Why would the committee chair want to hold it up?
