I Can't Disagree|
I think its actually more about creating a paper trail and slowing down the process enough that they might be caught before they are able to carry out their plan.
If I (in this scenario, I am hell-bent on shooting people) know that no matter what, I can't get a gun legally, I will stop trying legal means and start being a DIY internet type.
If I know I can get one legally, and at a reasonable price, but it will be less effective and I'll have to wait a month, I can work with that. During that month a more complete background check could be done or (if I get the gun) at least it won't be as effective for shooting people, and maybe one of the heroic people at the scene will have an easier time stopping me sooner.
