the risk is when lawmakers legislate based on a faith in magical tech. a national database that could meet this vision of quick and compromise background checks is just incredibly difficult to execute.

re: Federal Gun Control Requires IT Overhaul
It is much easier to just repeal the 2nd Amendment and replace it with a law that allows for gun licenses on a strictly as needed basis. Nobody in suburbia needs rifles, especially when the excessive amounts of guns out there are drastically reduced. But for some shootings like in Newtown or the killing of a school bus driver in broad daylight are just collateral damage. How many more innocent people have to die? Why throw technology at a problem that requires much different solutions? Do away with guns and the need for an expensive background check system doesn't even present itself while keeping many many people alive and well.
