    Completely stupid stuff in firearms regulation.

    In about 2-3 weeks, I'll be able to receive some guns through the mail.
    Currently waiting on ATF paperwork.

    Even then though, it's moronic what I can and cannot receive in the mail.
    Not the ATF's fault, they are following the law as written, legislators on the other hand.

    I can get this in the mail.



    But not this.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What's the difference? The design are not identical, but it's hard to tell how they differ.

    The top one is older, that's it.

    Functionally they are the exact same, bullet caliber is nearly identical but that makes no difference as far as the law is concerned.

    Seems idiotically arbitrary to me.

    It is.
    In order to get the license you have to give them your SSN, all past addresses, as well as a load of other information.
    I have to give a copy of it to my Chief Law Enforcement Officer(city or county police/sheriff) as well.

    They run a background check and your clear.

    This regulation comes from the 1968(?) Gun Control Act, if I'm not mistaken.
    I think it shows how stupid legislators can be, regardless of party affiliation.

    Re: Justices extend gun owner rights nationwide

    I recently had to register a gun in Virginia where we are supposed to have easy gun laws. I had to go through all kinks of gestapo tactics issued by the state police in order to do so. Police record check, photos, forms, etc. The seller has to do even more.

    It would have been easier just to go to a gun show or on the street to buy one.

    I applaud the supreme court's decision.

    The supreme court will never accept a meaningful case about the 10th Amendment. That's just the way it is. The supremes are, after all, feds and they will never give up their own power to the states.

    agreed...
    its much harder to get a driving liscense than to legally purchase a gun.
    we should only need to sign our name, give the current address and wait a week before getting to legally drive.

    How in the world is it harder exactly?

    To get a liscenses one must show a proof if legal presense, identity, state residence, pass a safety course, and spend 9 months (if prior to 19) or 30 days (if older than 19) on a learning permit. The states themselves provide courses on safety, preperation, and that help fulfill requirements in public education in classes that count for school credit.

    What is more difficult about obtaining a gun than that?

    Not to mention only one of the two is actually a constitutional right.
