You know the old saying...

 
“I BELIEVE in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers,” Mahatma Gandhi once said. Journalist-haters, and people like me who hate everything there is about news in general, along with people who think like he did might not care about the problems of America’s news foutlets, but many Americans do. Nearly a third of all american adults now say they have abandoned a news source because they thought the quality of its information was declining.
I think it all sucks - it's that simple. It's talking heads with opinions I didn't ask for, or it's news of tragedies and mayhem that have little or nothing to do with me. And there's just entirely too much of it.

Now you tell me somebody ain't a fuckin' degenerate in there. 
That's just plain fuckin' funny.

Case in point? Even the lefties sorta agree with me about this. Go figure...

Do you know someone who'd like

I can't see what the problem with this is at all. 
They should have been doing it all along. This is just my opinion, but I see no problem with background checks being mandatory. Bad guys shouldn't have guns. Period. I'm sure you can come up with a coupla times when a background check denied a lawful citizen a weapon - there are no foolproof systems, that's fer certain, but we gotta start somewhere and this actually makes sense to me.

Wuddya think one of these'd go for nowadays?

I 'inherited' these from a job I was working on a while back. 
Anyone interested? I'll sell 'em for $ 150.00.

  2. Background checks are already required for gun shows and online firearm sales. It's a nonexistent problem.

  3. I've bought about a half dozen guns online and went through a background check everytime. Ditto with gunshows. This will not affect bad guys at all.

  4. Regarding Gun control legislation. The issue is that it also prohibits, if they wish, sales and gifts to relatives. It is a weapon that can be used indiscriminately, and, considering the political climate, WILL be used as a weapon. The majority of gun violence occurs in inner cities...how often do you see them addressing that problem? Not so much.

  5. Regarding gun control, if the counties, states and the fed government would just use the existing bazillion anti-gun laws, then the people who tend to use guns illegally would either be in jail, prison or fearful of being prosecuted.

    But, no.

    Far too often existing gun laws aren't enforced against criminals. They ARE, far too often, used against non-criminals as ways of forcing lawful gun owners to take a plea bargain to a lesser crime (and, of course, forfeit their right to keep and bear arms.)

    Background checks are stupid, inefficient and basically don't work. Like, oh, say, the question on the form that asks the submitter if they've used pot or other drugs. Answer this with a 'Yes' and it's an auto-denial. Falsely answer with a 'No' and the felony you just committed won't ever be charged, unless you're a right winger supporting anti-left wing politicians and policies.

  6. I don't think shall not and infringe are difficult concepts. Gun laws are basically illegal.

  7. What you own as your private property, which you have "the right to keep and bear," and that you sell to another American, who also has "the right to keep and bear," is none of the government's business.

  8. You really need to educate yourself on this topic before spouting off like that.

    Gun dealers and online sales and gun dealers at gunshows all need to do background checks. In some states, private citizens can sell to another private citizen. This is aimed at removing that avenue of sales. Further, this a restriction that they can implement at any time...simply say "no" to all transactions.

    This will not affect inner city gun violence at all, and is really backdoor registration. The Federal Government doesn't need to know who has what firearm. They did that in Germany in, I believe 1939. That went well, didn't it?
    You've been led down the primrose path by the media and the anti gun folks rather than educating yourself....

    1. You've got all that right. This is the government just trying to create a gunowner's list (which is not legal under current law) by getting a record of every sale. The only rationale for that is they intend some form of confiscation. And the only reason for that is that they intend to do things that we ought to shoot them for.

  9. "Shall not be infringed"?
    So now every gun handed down from grandfather to father to son will require a background check and give the government a record of where the gun is and who owns it And they will also have the opportunity to disallow the transfer if they disagree with your politics or don't like the color of your skin.
    Another issue is that the government by law is not supposed to keep the records of background checks that detail the subsequent gun purchases but everyone knows that they do.
    They obey this legal restriction on their action about as well as those against the illegal invasion, college loan buyouts and all the other Constitutional restrictions and protections that they violate every day.
    So when the next leftist tyrant in the White House decides to confiscate all guns they will have millions of records to start with.

  10. All “Gun Laws” are unconstitutional. It is no business of the government what I choose to buy, sell, or own.
