    Crap, y'all don't even recognize anyone whose on your side unless they live in a bunker, with an ammo dump in the backyard.

    I'm out of here.
    And DiAnna cops out again. Typical.

    I was wondering what that was referring to.

    Obama voiced broadly popular proposals; there is no controversy among mainstream Americans.

    Excerpted from “President Obama: We must seek agreement on gun reforms,” op-ed by President Barack Obama, Arizona Daily Star, Posted: Sunday, March 13, 2011 12:00 am
    … [O]ur focus right now should be on sound and effective steps that will actually keep those irresponsible, law-breaking few from getting their hands on a gun in the first place.
    • First, we should begin by enforcing laws that are already on the books. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System is the filter that's supposed to stop the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. Bipartisan legislation four years ago was supposed to strengthen this system, but it hasn't been properly implemented. It relies on data supplied by states - but that data is often incomplete and inadequate. We must do better.
    • Second, we should in fact reward the states that provide the best data - and therefore do the most to protect our citizens.
    • Third, we should make the system faster and nimbler. We should provide an instant, accurate, comprehensive and consistent system for background checks to sellers who want to do the right thing, and make sure that criminals can't escape it.
    Obama should be commended for seeking a broad public agreement on gun control measures but it is really disappointing for those of us who believe it is the height of irresponsibility to not seek broader ammunition and magazine size restrictions.

    I've got to admit, the seeming uproar here leaves me scratching my head.

    From what I read (indeed from what he said) he is advocating better and more efficient enforcement of laws that are already on the books. Namely just making background checks more effective.

    Unless there is some slippery slope that I'm missing, he isn't introducing any form of new regulation just stating better ways to go about enforcing one current regulation, one that isn't close to being that controversial.

    I have worked on the gun counter before, and I can tell you that there actually are people dumb enough that they get denied. Of course background checks won't do anything about the sheer number of guns in the US sold in secondary markets, i.e. craigslist, classifieds, friends, friends of friends, etc.

    Nor should it. It's private property.

    The deterrence for the misuse of firearms by criminals is not an obscure law in a dusty book which isn't going to be enforced anyway, but an armed population.
