    There are no laws preventing private sellers from selling guns without a background check in 40 states.

    Brilliant comment.

    If you have no military training, then you have no business being considered part of the nation's armed forces.

    The 2nd Amendment refers to the militia (today's armed forces/reserves).

    If you are in the armed forces/reserves (plus cops and the like) then you should be able to buy a gun without a background check.

    If not, you should not.




    A falsehood is a lie. Are you accusing me of lying?

    Yes or no?


    If the answer is 'yes' - you better provide proof that I lied or this discussion is over.

    I don't waste my time with juvenile morons who throw baseless accusations around without cause.

    If you want to call me names - let's head to the Dungeon and have at it properly.



    Have a nice day.
    this is complete silliness. what part of the constitution gave the federal government the power to restrict citizens owning firearms?

    Nor should there be. Buying, selling, trading, manufacturing, or otherwise exchanging arms must be included in keeping and bearing arms. What good is the right to keep and bear arms without the right to acquire them?
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    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.

    Tens of millions of guns have been bought by law abiding citizens after completing a background check.

    So background checks do not prevent law abiding people from purchasing guns, as some in the far right claim.
