    So...tell us again how many of those 1.9 million people that "committed a crime" have been arrested and prosecuted. Should be a simple thing to do. You have all those 'facts'. Or...didnt they give you THAT talking point?

    OH...and BTW...Im ON YOUR SIDE. Those 1.9 million...if they committed a crime and by your offering...they DID...then they should be arrested tried and with all that evidence, found guilty and given max sentences. So...help us all share in the glorious 'success' of the brady bill...tell us...HOW MANY were arrested, tried and convicted of illegally attempting to purchase firearms?

    No one expects to stop it, its all about making them more expensive/harder to get for criminals and crazies.

    I do find it curious that some feel they have a constitutional right to end life through abortion without limit but feel others have no or very limited constitutional rights to own a weapon because that weapon may end a life.
    Get yourself a compound bow or crossbow and do some target practice with it. At least you'll have some kind of weapon with which to defend your home.

    You made the claim, you provide the documentation. I am happy to support making it a little harder and more expensive for criminals and crazies to get guns.

    How does a Federal Gun Registry Database make it harder for criminals and crazies to get guns?!!!! Answer it doesn't!

    Do states have a Database on criminals? Do the states know which crimes are State Crimes as opposed to Federal?

    What need is there for a Federal Database on those who already own guns legally and have nothing to do with crime? Why would the Federal government need to know who already owns guns?

    Never, ever, felt the need - perhaps it's a function of the city I live in, which has very little crime that isn't focussed in particular areas and population segments of the city prone to gang violence, places and people I have zero interaction with and I have no intention of starting now.

    Canada just got rid of its "long gun" registry, a promise that was part of the campaign of the Conservative Party who won a majority government in the last federal election here. The registry basically made law abiding rural citizens feel like criminals while actual criminals were not affected at all.

    It was a billion dollar bureaucratic liberal wet dream and most sane people saw it for what it is/was.

    OMG Catawba...thats just funny as hell!

    No WONDER you cant respond...they didnt give you the talking points re how many of those 'criminals' were arrested. They DID however give you instructions on 'How to use it"

    How can I use it?

    Use this report to make the case that gun laws work by making it harder for dangerous people to get guns. Urge legislators to extend this successful law to cover all gun sales, including those at gun shows, and to fund the NICS Improvement Act to increase the number of relevant records in the NICS system.

    Your claim that it is illegal for someone to apply for gun purchase and be denied, remains undocumented.
