And yes, you should explain why you are buying a billion guns.
You can't buy more than one at a time without getting in some serious trouble.

The current law states that you can't buy guns to trade without a dealer license which contrary to most dishonest reports is a major hassle to get and maintain. If you purchase two or more at a time, your purchase will be sent to ATF for analysis. If you buy 20, expect a major ATF visit.

This is how stupid people can be, did you know that this legislation also cover any gun that can "ACCEPT" a 10 round or larger magazine? That means (for people like you) anything that can accept a magazine, it can be banned...


Here, let me break it down kindergarten style for you:

The original rifle comes from the factory with a 6 round magazine.

A company (not the manufacture) makes a 11 round magazine (after market), my rifle is now banned.

Is that easy enough for you to understand?

You tell me. You are implying that lawful gun owners deliberately provide guns to criminals.

Things I wish would happen but never will anytime this lifetime.
Sorry for the confusion. I support a Universal Background Check, I made that known in my first post.

Why would gang members make their own guns when they can buy them?

I was responding to another member, your post should be directed towards them.

They can do both just like you or I. They WON'T be going through any background check.

How would that be enforced?

How is the 51st law going to stop me from killing you?

You are the one telling me that illegal guns magically fall into the hands of gang members. Tell me how the guns go from factory to gangs.
