Idk what hoops you jump thru during a background check but It only causes me a 5min wait to get a non nfa gun. Nothing will stop a determined individual from committing a crime. but supply criminals with guns legaly is just plain stupid. In your mind why have ANY laws at all hell making murder illegal never stopped anybody. Laws dont prevent anything they only deter the halfhearted. telling someone to go kill themselves is just ignorant, and its statements like that that make gun owners look and sound crazy and dont help the cause at all.
I never told
anyone to go kill themselves.. I said
if they had any honor.. I'll put it a different way.. If they (Marines) don't believe the things, they made an oath to uphold.. they should at least keep their mouth shut..on the subject.. and give up all their rights to vote, religion, and all the other rights under the Constitution.
If you take one away, they all will fall... a lot of good men died to gain us
these right, and it's very disrespectful to those dead hero's to piss away our hard earned freedoms, because of a few nut cases.. or to be A political compromises.. weapons don't kill people, it's a trigger pull and a person behind the weapon.. that kills people.. People killed People Long before the invention of Fire Arms..
As far as Hoops.. and stupid goes.. I'll outline the hoops some states require.. 1) a Finger print 2) a gun safe or gun Lock 3) a paper record and or electronic record 4) one gun a month 5) Magazine Capacity restrictions 6) A waiting period of many days...you may wait 5 min today, but tomorrow with a federal ban you may wait 10 or more days to pick up a gun soon...7) proof of residency, more paperwork 8) Safe handling Demo (more paperwork) 8) Registration in the states computer data base avail to any LEO on a traffic stop. 9) Safe gun roster (only tested and approved guns are allowed to be sold in that state) even the same model with a different finish is not allowed..unless tested separately ot manufacturers expense.. 10) Handgun Safety Certificate cards or permits $25 more paperwork and money 11) DROS paperwork fees to the state $25 more of your hard earned money.. 12) state taxes (more money)
The Criminal has none of those problems, it's open the trunk, hand over the cash and off to WORK they go.... you need to read a book. The truth about self protection by Massad Ayoob
(Author) it will lay down some the gun myths.. Making murder illegal is for prosecution not prevention.
There are a lot of people who need killing, I hate to say.. The Marines do it for a living..B2B
