you don't know what the hughes amendment is?
In 1986 the Firearms owner protection act was clearly going to pass and RWR was going to sign it
anti gun NJ congressman Bill Hughes was upset and he conspired with acting congressional leader Rangel to derail the bill with a poison bill amendment that would ban machine guns made after May 19, 1986 from being sold. Despite not passing a voice vote, Rangel claimed it did and it was attached with the help of George Mitchell the senate majority leader. RWR signed the complete bill based on the view that the overall bill was pro gun and the hughes amendment would be struck as unconstitutional and having been attached contrary to the rules of the house
in other words, the purpose of this amendment was not to prevent crime because there was no crime with legal machine guns but to harass gun owners and to derail a pro gun bill
Its not a loophole btw so that claim is just biased nonsense
if his father gave him a gun knowing he was under indictment his father is guilty of giving a weapon to a prohibited person and Roof was guilty of being a prohibited person in possession-another federal felony
if he bought it from a gun store and said he was not under indictment he is guilt of federal perjury even if he passed the background check because the court of someone screwed up
there are plenty of federal felony charges to punish him without "needing" new laws
you see, when a dealer is audited the ATF can check each 4473 and make sure it has a proceed number which is also kept by the data base doing the background check. if you have a 4473 and no proceed you, as a dealer are in deep doo-doo. and if a wholesaler has a record of you being shipped a gun and you have no evidence of it still being in your store you better have a disposition record-either a retail sale with a 4473 or a copy of the FFL of the other dealer you might have traded or sold it to
And if I didn't want anyone CCW, I'd say that. What I said is I'm 51 and haven't one time in my life regretted my decision to leave my firearms at home while going about my daily life. I'm lucky and live in a very safe area. Not everyone is that lucky. What they do is their business.so you are against people CCW i take it
What you can't do is make the rational case for carrying a weapon inside a church to prevent an attack with odds with 6 or 7 zeros following the decimal point.
and GOD help you if one day you leave your alleged gun at home and some guy comes walking in your church and decides to pull a Loughner on the congregation
