The Maryland House of Delegates is considering a bill that would "link" the state's gun registry and criminal registry, giving police the ability to determine which firearms owners are convicted felons and confiscate their guns. According to one estimation, about 10% of Maryland gun owners, amounting to about 110,000 people, would be affected. This begs the question: How did the background checks on all these people, presumably done to see if they have nothing disqualifying them from gun ownership, fail to uncover their felony convictions in the first place?
