    You may as well take a crayon and just scribble over the 2nd and 4th amendments.

    WRONG. As is often said about marriage; why buy a cow if you can always get milk under the fence? Many "infringements" exist now with no objections being honored by the courts; CCW permit fees, CHL fees, AWB laws, MCL laws and BG checks at all FFL dealers, CA now mandates BG checks at FFL dealers for all in state sales/transfers for about $35 for one gun.

    Re: Universal background checks

    Sure, as long as:

    1. No registry whatsoever (state/national) is formed
    2. Private sellers have no LEGAL burden to maintain sales records
    3. Public abuse of NICS prevented
    4. It does not require some exorbitant expense to the seller/buyer (currently $2 is ok)
    5. Family ‘transfers’ are exempted
    6. CC’s are exempted



    Unfortunately the poll referenced in the OP asks such a generically broad question it renders it useless. UNTIL there is a bill written for review by the poll respondents any current test of support is merely weak supposition.

    Having at least a background check before purchase is an absolute minimum to me. So yes.

    All he needed was a driver's license.

    Less than a week ago, one reader sent us photos of the assault weapons he had purchased at a gun show without a background check. He then taunted the government to "come take his guns." Today another reader, who spent his Saturday morning fighting the crowds at a Florida gun show, sent us this picture of his purchase.

    The 9mm Uzi sold for $1,400. Because the gun was used, and sold by an individual, there was no background check; the only item required for purchase was a local driver's license.

    To commenters: Full auto conversion bolts for this weapon are available online. Yes, it's an NFA regulated Class 3 Item and will transfer to your Class 3 dealer on a Form 4 with buyer responsible for paying the $200.00 transfer tax.

    The automatic conversion is simple, though. Once it's converted, the Uzi 9mm can shoot up to 600 rounds per minute — in theory.

    "This gun is only meant for killing people," the reader said. "It's just a wall of lead. It's so f--king cool!"

    Re: Universal background checks

    I do not support them, because 'universal background checks' is much more than what it says, sort of like 'fair share', 'fair wage', 'balanced approach' and so many other terms the left uses to disguise what they actually want.

    In the event of UBC's, they want registration. Not just NO, HELL NO.

    I bet your poll never gets that advertised 90% result.

    In fact, as of this moment, it's running about 70% the other way.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
