If, a big of, that ever happens, I will be long dead and forgotten.

If it prevents even one shooting don't you think that would be worth it?. Or will you stick with the selfish "thou shall not infringe" mentality that tells the world that you don't care that children continue to be slaughtered as long as the gun owner can get what he wants?

Could you please point out where I used any of those words in my post?

Thanks.

Dear Lord the gun nuts are out of control in this country. To assume tighter background checks is "just the start" that will result in the seizure of law abiding citizens' guns is completely idiotic. The 2nd Amendment is not going anywhere, and I'm a supporter of the 2nd Amendment. To believe there is any chance of this being repealed are the words of an idiot. Period.

Honestly what the Hell is wrong with you people? You can keep your guns, most all of us are fine with that. We simply want to make it harder for the next Adam Lanza to legally purchase a gun. Why is this so difficult?????

Tell us, smart guy, how you measure something in the future. Then after that, tell us how you block two people exchanging a firearm in their garage.


We have to pass it to see what's in it.....comes to mind. Let's pass a stupid law to see if it works and if it doesn't we rescind it....said no lefty ever.

"Smart guy"? Now that was a bit unnecessary. But I'll play your game.

I have no idea what your comment regarding exchanging firearms in a garage has to do with my position. I never pretended the black market won't exist, or that criminals will no longer be able to obtain firearms. I am simply pointing out that people with known mental health issues such as the Sandy Hook and Parkland shooters should NOT be able to simply walk into a gun store and purchase a weapon. This won't prevent you from making a purchase, assuming you aren't as crazy are your post history would indicate. But why not make it harder for the crazy idiots to kill people? Why are we even debating this? Oh right, because you are ignorant and selfish.

Letís see how this stupid background check has been working.

Of about 40,000 people who failed the background check each year, less than 70 were prosecuted.

I must remind you that failing background check often is a federal crime punishable up to 10 years.

Yeah, I am sure more background check would do wonder.

Adam Lanza got his weapon from his mother. Should we restrict the parents'/aunt's/uncle's/grandparent's/sibling's/neighbor's/friend's right to buy a firearm because somebody like Adam may exist in the friends and family circle?

You actually are arguing that it's OK for a guy like this to own a gun. I have no idea how anyone can feel this way but this is the country we live in. I was simply using Lanza as an example of the type of person who should not be allowed to purchase a gun.

This is not happening in other countries. I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

Lanza did not own a gun. He stole the one he used. As for the Parkland shooter, the police had been called on him over 30 times and they did nothing.
