    I can't believe some folks actually oppose such common-sense rules.
    what we oppose are your idiotic beliefs such laws can be imposed on private citizens

    btw if you do sell to someone who does not live in your state you are in violation of the law

    Of course they do. Yeah, illegals who possess firearms... not too much of a stretch to conceive of the idea that they may have obtained them illegally... Or for so many other criminals for that matter. Or maybe our government just them guns....

    I always find it amusing when some people complain about having to show id when it comes to legals/illegals. a U.S. citizen must prove their status when doing just about anything. cashing a check, driving a car, buying a travel ticket anywhere, checking into a hotel room.... I have no problem with people showing proof of identity to purchase firearms, since U.S. citizens have to do so as part of their daily lives. That non law abiding citizens have guns, pretty damn stupid to think they acquired them legally....

    providing proof of citizenship or Permanent Residency, is idiotic?

    how about making it a Federal requirement that Driver's Licenses have a "C" for citizens, "P" for permament residents, and "O" for others or those who chose not to provide such info.

    withhold federal highway funding from states that refuse.

    this can also apply to non-Driver ID cards.

    and we can use this so know who is a citizen or PR, and who isn't.

    and if you refuse to let the state know your immigration status....then u don't get to buy a gun.

    ....or work legally, register to vote, etc etc.

    What if you go to a gun show in another state? Are you not allowed to buy because you're not a resident of that state? Isn't American citizenship enough?
