Background vs. backbone: You name it

Now that the defeated background check bill has become an NRA trophy despite 90 pct. public support  and a 54-46 majority in the Senate (without Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman's support) , shouldn't we now stop referring to it as a background check and instead call it a "backbone check" for the senators  who voted against it?

Roughly paraphrasing the celebrated political satirist-comedian, Mark Russell, what do you get when you grab senators by the ankles, and turn them upside down and shake them? Answer: NRA lobbyists falling out of their pockets.
