This is a better compromise for both parties where they can keep guns from the right, and there are stricter gun laws to appease the left. More than that, it makes sense since America is the only first world country where this happens on such a pathetic, large scale. Once that happens, we can use 5-10 years and see if it has a positive effect.
this is my mindset however this initiative has been tried and failed - I know after SandyHook, the Obama admin pushed the vetting notion you mentioned about - and it died as it met congress and their ties to the NRA's influence. also note, earlier this year Trump also signed away a bill the revoked gun purchasing/ownership by the mentally ill
the excuse continually brought up is that enacting this requirement to purchasing a gun infringes on their 2nd amendment...uhh, where? you get to own one if you are fit to do so
