How do you fail a background test? Being a felon I know is one way. Are there others?

Depends on which party is pushing the law.

Only if you have to present ID when purchasing your arms.

I guess it would depend on what they are checking your background for.

Felonies - Yes
Diagnosed Pyschotic - Yes
Use of Antidepressants - Yes
Bullied in School - yes
PMS - yes

Who will makes the rules?

It kind of seems like a background check is an infringement upon your right to bear arms. I mean the 2nd amendment seems pretty simple, "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed". It seems that any barrier put up by the federal government between me and a "arm" that I would like to purchase would be infringement.

By that logic, a sixteen year old should be able to purchase an ak47 unimpeded

I think that's the slippery slope argument.

That's true. However the state can step in and put stricter regs in place were the feds can't. But we are passed that point with the incorporation doctrine and supremacy clause.

We put regulations on the 1st Amendment such as child porn.

The child porn analogy is kind of like yelling fire in a theater example. Making yelling fire in a theater when there is no fire illegal is not an infringement on your first amendment rights, it's an act of fraud that potentially hurts people. I hate that example of limited first amendment rights just like the kiddie porn example too.
