    Have proof that those guns wound up in the hands of ordinary criminals ?

    Undercover LE officers aren't charged with possession of drugs when they themselves conspire to sell, with the hopes of scooping up some buyers.

    Maybe the government should be brought up on terrorism charges if they themselves infiltrate a terror network and install an agent, while trying to foil a terror plan.

    I suppose you would have LE officials arrested for conspiracy when they try and buy illegal drugs, in their effort to try and take down sellers.

    Has anyone ever accused you of being smart ?

    its illegal to transport guns across state lines, except for a few reasons.

    Unless specifically specified in the Constitution, such as citizenship restrictions on the right to vote, Constitutional rights apply to EVERYONE in the US, not just citizens.

    so illegal immigrants should be able to buy a gun in the USA?

    it should be a crime to refuse to sell a gun to an illegal immigrant?

    Here are the rules

    1) I live in Ohio

    2) if I go to Kentucky

    I can BUY a LONG GUN From a KY dealer

    I cannot buy ANY GUN from ANY Private seller

    I can sell a gun to a dealer

    I cannot sell a gun to anyone who is not a dealer

    I believe I can buy a gun from an OHIO dealer though I am not sure

    I believe I can sell a gun to someone who is a resident of OHIO but I am not sure

    nope, under the McClure Volker FAOPA if own a weapon legally in state A you can legally transport it to any other state where you can legally possess the gun

    that was passed when NYC assholes would arrest someone who was say traveling from florida to maine and they had a lay over in NYC and a gun in their bag

    when I was on the Yale Shooting team our big meet was in NEw HAMPSHIRE and prior to that law we had to get permission from the MASS STATE POLICE TO merely drive through their state to compete. (no other way there other than perhaps going 9 hours out of our way through NY

    Thanks for the clarification. I'm living in Idaho for the time being, but I'm from Nebraska and have a Nebraska license. I haven't updated my license because I intend to return to Nebraska. Plus, I really hate going to the DMV.

    you cannot legally buy a gun anyplace now because you are not living at the address on your license
