Why object to better background checks?

Maybe we should be asking ourselves why the NRA or any of its members are so upset with the government wanting to do more thorough background and physiological checks on prospective gun buyers. We all have to agree that if someone is unstable or has a criminal past they have given up any rights to the Second Amendment.

Now if the NRA objects to this it seems to me their only motive would either be loss of membership or their financial supporters, the arms manufacturers, will lose prospective gun buyers. If a member or a gun buyer objects to the government's proposal then we should be questioning that person's agenda. Could it be that they themselves are unstable or have a criminal past? No matter, in all reality neither is at all concerned about the Second Amendment or for our safety. They seem to be fighting this for all the wrong reasons.
