    That isn't how illegal gun possessions are taking place, as a rule. They are buying them off of other street gangs and thugs. The ones who are purchasing and selling large numbers of weapons, aren't going through legal channels either. Those guns can be traced back to them, and they aren't that stupid.

    sadly, you are once again confusing inconvenience, with actual HARM

    sorry to inconvenience you, but public safety is more important than your desperate need to buy two handguns at the same time.

    right, so when you get too tired to argue the merits, you go back to one of your many pathetic fall-back positions, that this is really about evil Liberals taking away yer freedom.

    faith based arguments don't support infringements. try again

    straw purchases are illegal and gain serious prison time

    we have enough laws.

    we need to enforce them

    like if someone lies on a 4473 we should charge them with perjury. when they are in jail for that they cannot buy guns from anyone

    tell me thunder-what sort of studies and information did you consult before becoming a self professed expert on what needs to be done given you have never owned a gun and really have no clue about their use (yet)

    it is taking away from my freedom and why should I suffer any infringement when you cannot prove it will have any benefit

    and once again, I can honestly argue that my freedom should not be infringed EVEN IF you can show it might cause some good

    and you really aren't in any position to tell me what causes me harm

    limiting your handgun purchases to one per month, doesn't mess with your freedom.

    it simply slows down you ability to stockpile your arsenal of deadly weapons. This is an inconvenience, that all adults would learn to deal with in a mature fashion.

    requiring background checks for ALL gunshow sales, would require all sales to go through a 2-minute background check.

    this would take two additional minutes out of the sellers time. This is an inconvenience, that all adults would learn to deal with in a mature fashion.

    limiting hangun mag. sizes to 10 rounds, would mean you would have to bring that extra magazine to the range. This is an inconvenience that all adults would learn to deal with in a mature fashion.


    ....meanwhile, while law-abiding citizens learn to deal with these inconveniences, criminals would be ****ting their pants, trying to figure out how they are gonna buy guns.

    this is a great thing, one worthy of the inconveniences it would cause.

    just like seatbelts, stop lights, stop signs, traffic lights, and speed limits.

    I think I have the ultimate say not you



    I think you should be inconvenienced by only making one post a month on guns. You see most of your posts are idiotic and the discourse on this board would improve.

    I think if you ever got into office and tried to impose all the crap you would want we'd all want to be better armed

    so rather than discussing the issue, you fallback to childish remarks. And you have the hypocrisy to accuse ME of diverting threads.
