    I note that if the average pro gun restrictionist knows as much as you do on the subject, than we are dealing with LIVs almost exclusively

    Hmm, and I bet most of those polled actually think the laws are different at gun shows than other venues in a given state

    and I bet less than one out of ten who supports "assault weapon" restrictions couldn't tell you what one is

    appealing to ignorance and emotion is the gun control movement's stock in trade
    While you are betting, what are the odds that I can buy a gun at a gun show without a background check?

    And that would be relevant if anyone was proposing to ban all handguns.

    years ago the association that represented librarians noted that the NRA's information was among the most trustworthy. HCI (The brady conspiracy against the second amendment) was rated as among the most bogus

    Americans do not need to know how the mechanics of an automobile operate to have an opinion about what the speed limit should be on their street.

    if you all thought you could accomplish that you would. You have demonstrated you have swallowed the faith based myth that banning some guns stops some crime. Its no great step for you to believe banning more guns will stop more crime

    and when your idiotic schemes fail to work, you will claim the only problem was that the scheme does not go far enough. There is nothing you can come up with that I haven't seen from the ARC

    when the Clinton Feinswine gun ban did nothing positive, DIFI pissed and moaned that the law was evaded-makers complied with the stupid law by removing folding stocks, etc that made the guns illegal

    just as you can from your friend at his house, your buddy at the gun club, or your "brother" at the Union Hall or another Knight at the Knights of Columbus meeting hall.
