    I don't have a problem with buying an AR15, since it's not an assault rifle. It's the misuse of terms that irritates me, because it feeds a general ignorance about the subject of guns. Gun dealers are required to do background checks. Individuals are not (as it should be).

    Here is where we disagree. I believe that individuals selling guns should also be required to do a background check.

    Don't you just love the lie that gun shows are somehow different than everywhere else? I have to admit I laughed when I heard it after the shooting. Then I realized they were serious and it only got more funny. What idiots.

    I just think it's funny that you listen to kids about guns, but ignore them completely when they want privacy. How does that work exactly?

    They ARE different. You can buy a gun from an individual at a gun show without having to undergo a background check. I have done it here in Houston.

    You can do that outside of a gun show, too.

    I believe it varies from State to state. In Texas, I am capable of purchasing weapons at a gun show without a background check. I think it's different in Colorado.

    I've done it in San Antonio several times.
