    One of the funniest post I've seen recently. Most of the country couldn't define statistics, and many are now more concerned about American Idol than even recall Newtown...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    1) you put the ad online.

    2)Someone responds. Pays through pay pal or whatever.

    Only 2 ways to get that gun.

    3a) private transfer between 2 people.

    3b) mail it.

    3b requires an FFL by law.

    A law is in place. If it isn't working...we don't need more laws. We need enforcement of the law on the book.

    Nope, as the New York stink documented, investigators contacted the numbers listed for guns being advertised for sale online, arranged to meet with the seller and exchanged cash for the guns, no background check, no questions.

    That is a private sale. Do you not understand what a private sale is?

    Yep, that is what the bipartisan background check law being proposed is to address, private sales, including gun shows, flea markets, and private sellers advertising online.

    Then you clearly don't understand private sales.

    Nope, just the far right:
