Sitting in a hotel designed by and for Morticia Adams, Brad hands me a full page ad in something called a newspaper (the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). It’s from a group of gun violence survivors called The Education Fund to Stop Gun Violence. They’re an off-shoot of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. “Whoever they are,” our man Kozak opines. “They’ve got some serious money.” And a message for NRA Prez Wayne LaPierre: let’s talk. About computer databases. “We want to make sure the instant gun background check system, which the NRA supported, is effective. Unfortunately, right now, it’s not.” Unfortunately, if you think about it, it never will be. It can’t be. It’s a database. A big mf’ing database. Databases are inherently, often profoundly inaccurate. Subject to political manipulation as well (e.g. the FBI Terrorist Watch List). The bigger the database, the worse it is. And even a gun check database it was 100 percent accurate, criminals would still use straw purchases. Or buy stolen. As they do now. On the behalf of Mr. LaPierre a simple question: what else you got?
