    The bad news is that it obviously works on a segment of the population.

    Why I think its stupid. Ask someone a question right after a tragic event, (lets say someone gets drunk and runs over a bunch of kids at a crosswalk) and they might say we should ban alcohol. Ask someone after a plane plows into a building and kills a thousand people if they think muslims should not be allowed on planes and they might say yes.

    What this lacks is perspective. Those little kids don't have guns, they see no reason to have them, so naturally they think it is an easy solution to just take them away.

    Kids don't know that if you banned all law abiding citizens from having guns that they would still pour across the borders ( like drugs) leaving the disarmed citizens at a major disadvantage.

    How are gun dealers being required to do a background check? What is the system used?

I did not get a background check when I purchased it. I bought the weapon, and then walked out the door with it.
    Then clearly it differs from state to state. And that supports the 10th. But to generally say anyone can go to any gun show and buy without a background check is to not state the truth.

    In CO, they do checks, there's a booth just for doing checks for any gun sold at the show, so that even covers private sales, which is most of the booths at the show.

    I listened to a good bit of left wing radio today. It seems the left is outraged by the NRA ad. How horrible they use the presidents CHILDREN to make a point. Yet they defend the president using other peoples kids to make a point, including kids that were murdered.

    Wow.

    The president didn't ask the kids to write to him asking for gun control. And I haven't heard anyone on right wing radio being outraged by the NRA ad.

    It's questionable that the kids actually wrote the letters, or wrote them of their own free will.

    Here's the text:

    Are the president's kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school.

    You will note it is not attacking the Presidents' kids, but rather the President's liberal elite hypocrisy in assuming that he has the right to ensure that his children be protected but you shouldn't have the right to protect yours.

    ...aaaaand once again, the hyperventilating overreactors break Godwins Law and only end up making themselves look stupid. Do you have any idea how your side looks like a bunch of idiot ninnies right now?






    this is the anti-gun side, right now.
