    You probably could have confirmed that at a gun show. You've got nothing to teach anyone here, as usual.

    Re: Gun Control

    I would think that person-to-person sales, which is as unregulated as unregulated can get, could be done much like transferring titles on a vehicle.

    I mean, if you sell a dude your car, you want him to transfer the title immediately so as to relieve you of the responsibility from that car. If Dude has a wreck or gets a buttload of parking tickets and the car is still in your name, they are going to come looking for you.

    Same should go for guns I suppose.

    I got no problem with that really. What do you guys think about that?

    no they don't. some of them look forward to massacres so they can use the deaths to justify their jihad against gun rights. some of them use the massacres to get more face time and get more donations to their disgusting organizations that try to rape the constitution

    well I always sell guns to people i know have CCWs and that I know don't have records (like lawyers and cops). If i don't have anyone interested in a gun I want to get rid of, I pay my dealer a 50 dollar commission he gets for selling it On his books for that reason

    but If I had a record and had some guns I would only be selling the guns on the down low to people buying on the down low and that is what happens most of the time with prohibited persons. there are plenty of ways to bust lots of the illegal acquisitions of guns

    did YOU know that if you buy more than ONE handgun in 5 business days or less from the same dealer, the dealer has to report that to the ATF. now I have bought 2 guns many times from the same dealer on the same day and I have NEVER had the ATF inquire. Probably because they know I am a well known competitive shooter etc. But I know where some clown bought 20 Jennings at one time (these are the guns that should come with a ski mask or half a pair of panty hose) and the ATF did not look into it UNTIL half the guns ended up in NYC a few months later

    Straw purchases-easy to bust. You buy a gun for your boyfriend who has a record a mile long and he gets busted, the gun will come back to you. some tough questions will follow

    there are plenty of ways to really put a dent in crooks getting guns

    If they truly believed eliminating guns would save the lives of our children, then perhaps their heart is in the right place as even the most ardent gun supporter loves his/her children more.

    But, even IF their heart is in the right place, their head is squarely up their ass because guns are here and guns are going to stay here. That's a simple fact. A minute spent fantasizing about their eradication is a minute wasted.

    The focus should be on the direction society is taking in terms of senseless violence and the causes that warp brains that has brought us here.


    Get rid of guns and evil will use a knife. Get rid of knives, evil will use his fist.

    I would venture to say that more people are killed in America using fists than semi-automatic assault weapons. Any takers?

    I think that makes a lot of sense.

    well in 1993, the police chief of trenton NJ said his officers had a greater chance of being mauled by escaped zoo tigers than being attacked by a criminal using one of the guns clinton wanted to ban
