    I suggest you do a bit of research. Every gun dealer must track every sale them make, including serial #'s, for all guns received into their possession and sold. So selling to someone illegally will come back on that dealer. When doing your research, stay away from left-wing sights... it will help you.

    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.
    Limiting purchases to one per month would have stopped NONE of the mass shootings that have happened so far. It would make ZERO difference in terms of stopping such things. Putting laws in place that do not have the desired end result or effect, is a waste of time and money, as well as cluttering up the system.

    requiring background checks for ALL gunshow sales, would require all sales to go through a 2-minute background check.
    You really have no idea at all what you are talking about on this one.

    I hope not.

    This brings up something I'd like to ask the anti-gun crowd though. If somehow they managed to ban all guns, how do they think this would be handled, and what sort of cost would be related to collecting all the guns and destroying them? Just wondering if any of the anti-gun people has any idea what their 'dream' would actually entail.

    you have a cavalier attitude in your posts towards the rights of others. I find that a bit more disturbing than "Childish"

    I take it you guys always fallback to this strawman, because you know that not only do we not discuss banning all guns, but we also know it would be impossible to do.

    how about you deal with the ACTUAL suggestions, and not the fear-mongering strawman boogeyman claims?

    yes, I want to add some convenience to your life and my life, in order to work towards a greater good.

    its the same with stop signs, stop lights, traffic signs, speed limits, seatbelt laws, etc etc.

    sorry for the inconvenience folks, but its for a greater good. We will all learn to deal with it like adults.

    If people run traffic lights others may be harmed from that VIOLATION alone

    If I buy a bunch of thirty round magazines that doesn't hurt anyone whatsoever.

    you need to start thinking things out rather than posting crap for the sole purpose of trying to stir stuff up so you can engage in contrarian posting

    Dude, you haven't supported anything you have claimed for almost 31K posts, so you might as well quit with that tactic. Secondly, I asked you to do your own research on that one. You will find what I told you to be accurate. Perhaps teachers from your past are to blame if you can't do your own research.

    I take it you guys always fallback to this strawman, because you know that not only do we not discuss banning all guns, but we also know it would be impossible to do.

    Oh BS. You want 10 round mags now. Then there will be another mass shooting, and you will require single shot only guns, then there will be another mass shooting, and .... the cycle repeats.

    Your 'actual' suggestions have been shown to be flawed and that they would not stop any future mass shooting. Repeatedly. For 500 posts.

    not wearing a seatbelt, not following traffic laws, may harm someone.

    and it may not.

    just as buying 10 handguns at a time may be the work of a criminal enterprise, and may not be.

    just as someone buying a handgun without a background check may be the work of a criminal, and may not be.

    sorry, but for the sake of the common good, or shall I say "the General Welfare", I'm willing to deal with a little inconvenience.

    more idiocy-running a traffic light alone can kill someone

    buying ten handguns alone will not-it requires some additional action )(and all of those are already illegal)

    when you can come up with some evidence come back. right now you are just posting nonsense for the sake of apparently engaging in mental masturbation

    Friends, family, the street, borrowed, stolen. Most of these guns aren't purchased through legal means, which is why it's futile to think we can control gun crime with gun control.
