    I could probably go with the people on probation idea, but if a criminal has paid his debt to society, I think he should regain his right to own firearms. If he is still a violent felon, then he should still be incarcerated.

    funny you bring that up, as Hitler did indeed loosen gun-control laws from where they were during the previous Weimar Republic.

    Re: Guns

    more crimes are committed with knives than rifles.

    therefore, buying a rifle/shotgun should only require a quick if not instant, background check, to make sure you ain't a felon and have the right to own a firearm.

    handguns? not unless you have a really good reason

    It's my right to carry. That's good enough reason.

    I think some Democrat was shot here in AZ. I guess that was justified. Maybe it was a gun free zone.

    Re: Guns

    Has anyone posting on this thread had a loaded handgun pointed at them by someone that had the intention to shoot you with it?
    If you have had this experience then I'll value your opinion much higher than most of the others.

    What is the point of these background checks? Under what circumstances is the state allowed to deny someone their rights under the second amendment? And what does the constitution say about this denial? If the constitution doesn't cover this, why is legislation allowed to trump constitutional rights?

    if you have committed a felony and a judge has not reinstituted your right to possess firearms, or if you have been institutionalized by a judge.

    the background check is to make sure you don't fall under one of these two categories.
