The mentally ill are banned from owning a firearm under current laws. Its people ignoring warning signs, or families not wanting to acknowledge a mental illness that are more the problem.

As for the background checks, statistically the number of guns purchased at gun shows is insignificant. How you prevent illegal sales is the issue, and since the current laws are ignored, why would stricter laws be followed?
