    Re: NYC Mayor Conducts Gun-Sale Sting in Arizona

    I've come to learn that when liberal progressives try and dismiss, downplay, and shrug off accusations, then that usually means that the accusations are right on....

    I guess that helps you dismiss, downplay, and shrug off the point being made.

    Thanks for the laugh j.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Still, the fear has never been appropriate to the actual threat. guns will never be banned in this country, and all sides of the political spectrum understand that. The same fretting has been around since long before I was born. And the actually banning? Zip! Nada! Nothing!
    I am sure that's what loons against the personal ownership of firearms in the UK and Australia said the same thing too.You have nothing to worry about.All we want is just some registrations, permit requirements, those bans on that type of firearm is reasonable and so on.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    When I first heard this reported it was reported that these were NYC police, and in fact the story states "task force", but they also say that they are private investigators....If these are NYC police, then AZ state troopers should be outraged at this.

    I can't tell you how this boils my blood.

    in many cases the mayor's investigators were in violation of federal and state gun laws. They had no authority to go to a state in which they weren't residents. that is a federal violation for them to buy guns.

    why? that is idiotic. the laws of a state are no different for a gun show than any other place in a state

    That's what libs want you to believe.You have to be a fool to believe that someone who enacted and or supported anti-2nd amendment laws in their state won't try to do the same thing when he or she is president.Before the Fast and Furious operation came to light they were trying to use Mexicans buying guns from American gun dealers as an excuse to try further infringe on 2nd amendment rights.

    You apparently are ignorant of the law. Gun dealers who have FFLs conduct background checks in their shops or at gunshows. Private citizens don't have to. If you engage in the business of selling firearms and you don't have a license that is a federal felony. The argument that gun show haters use is that since it concentrates lots of private sellers in one area, its easier for a felon to buy a gun from a private seller than saying calling up someone who has a classified ad in the paper.

    what they don't mention is that gun shows are full of cops. sometimes up to Half the dealers at gun shows have cops working their tables. Dealers I used to represent had off duty cops doing that job. and if you are a mope chances are you aren't going to go to a place where the guy who busted you might see you engaging in activity that is going to get you hard federal time

    In some instances the sellers are handing over guns to people who openly say they probably couldn't pass a background check which appears to be a violation of federal law.


    Buyer says "That's good about the background check because I probably couldn't pass one", seller: "I don't care...because I wouldn't pass either, bud"

    did you also know that in many cases Bloomberg's butt boys would call up someone who had an ad in a paper or gun listing site and ask the seller to meet him outside a gun show so Bloomberg could whine about the gun show?

    Its easy to buy Oxy without a prescription too.
