    We have seen our local crime become almost non existent since carry/conceal passed. No assault, robberies, just drug stuff now.

    Thank you for confirming that anybody in America can walk into a gun show and buy weapons without a background check.

    Thankfully for America and its people, that type of gross elitism is not part of our system.

    If you google long enough you might find it. Since I spend a fair amount of time every year (since I was about 16, ie 38 years) reading lots of information on this topic I have seen tons of information. I also, according to tests, have close to a photographic memory (though not controllable like say one of my grandmaster friends) so I recall stuff I may have read 25 years ago as if it was last week

    HOwever, anyone who understands guns knows that the anti gun extremists constantly lie about guns

    Example, the turd bloomberg on night line. he said "you don't need more than 3 shots to hunt"

    the interviewer said-if you use that standard all pistols are going to be banned

    then the Turd starts yelling that the proposed bans are about machine guns that shoot 30 bullets with ONE TRIGGER Pull. again the interviewer had to correct him

    that sort of lying is not being uttered by the pro gun leaders. Bloomberg is one of the leading anti gun extremist politicians in the USA and he constantly lies

    the Founders realized that many people are ignorant and easily swayed by emotion. that is why we have a constitutional republic not a pure democracy And i find it troubling that some people think mass hysteria should trump lower numbers who have facts and evidence on their side

    Re: Gun Control

    I only got 3 in my clip and one in the chamber of my 30.06 deer rifle. Fortunantly, to date, I have never had to fire twice using that gun. One shot. One kill.

    Oh yes....

    If it's brown, it's down.

    When I field dress the deer, I stick a stick upright right in the middle of the gut pile. The next day, I got a frozen gutcickle! Works sort of like a salt lick but for crows and coyotes.

    I never said that. In some shows private vendors are not allowed In the ones I attend, private vendors have to engage the services of an FFL to transfer the guns

    but congress-you know, the body you constantly claim represents the WILL OF THE PEOPLE did not impose upon private sellers a duty or a MEANS to conduct background check.

    the DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY IN CONGRESS AND THE SENATE IN 1993 refused to make the BGC apply to anyone BUT FEDERAL FIREARMS LICENSE HOLDERS

    and the reason why is obvious-it would not pass since private citizens, unlike dealers (who have been required to log in every firearm they receive in the course of business since 1968), have no duty to keep a record of what guns they own, its impossible to police private transactions.
