One thing I haven't heard discussed. As a juvenile your past is sealed up and all is forgiven when you are of age or have done your time. Do we think that a child with a previous problem just disappears at a given age? In this case the FBI may have dropped the ball because they didn't follow-up on many civilian tips. But let make sure that a troubled past / child isn't screen properly before allowing a gun purchased. Seems this part of the equation has been lost in an effort for sound procedure. Maturity is an issue. Only people that have sound faculties should own firearms. I'm a gun enthusiast myself but I sure don't want to go hunting with an immature gun operator that hasn't been properly train in safety and doesn't understand field gun etiquette. The point is a Felon adult is kept from buying a gun maybe limiting or delaying a firearm purchase from a troubled child should also come into play.
