    Now don't get me wrong, hooray for the trigger happy customer. However, lets say he missed and shot the innocent bystander behind the robber. I know its a serious stretch here, but he WAS in a grocery opening fire. I just don't get the whole argument that "the more guns the better" (hocks a loogey ina spitoon)
    Let's say you stop calling this guy a "trigger happy" customer, because you don't know that.

    the background check is to make sure you don't fall under one of these two categories.
    If you served your time behind bars you should not be denied your constitutional rights. If you are institutionalized by a judge then wouldn't that mean you are in a institution?As far as I know they don't allow you to freely roam.

    Re: Guns

    I hate when the right answer is not there.

    It's a state issue.

    But when Guns cross state lines, it's a federal issue.

    Waiting period. Background checks.

    Carry laws should be stricter. But that is a local issue.

    many folks in this country believe that if you have a history of criminal activity, your right to own a firearm should be suspended..until you can prove that you are no longer a danger to society.

    I agree with this stand.

    Its a constitutional right.So the state has absolutely no business messing with the second amendment, just like states have no business messing with all your other constitutional rights too.
