I deal with criminality in my job, we used to ask for police reports from each of the 50 states and the FBI, was kind of secondary. For a person from the NE that lived in Trenton, NY, I'd ask for New York State as well. Co-workers asked why, I said even thought they didn't live in the City they were most likely there a lot. Sure as sh*t I was right. Clean NJ, dirty NY. Eventually it got too difficult to manage, our customers had all kinds of excuses (read Red Flags) and didn't want to provide one. So we just went to FBI. They are supposed to have all the info for the 50 different countries, right? When you look at USA legally it really is 50 different States. Florida actually screws people over a bounced cheque. After a person pays the fines it should go away, right? Not a chance. Anyway, our system is allowing people out into the community to self heal too. We just don't have as many instruments of death floating around. They'd have to take a course to get a Firearms Acquisition Certificate, a medical and then apply for a permit. The process for the permit involves criminality checks. Sure it's a pain, but we all have the same rules to live by. Your permit requires safe storage of weapons, sure bad guys don't follow the rules, but as we know a lot of the bad guys follow traffic and gun laws to a T, so that they don't get caught on them.
