the author didn't mention traveling, legal, gun shows. they don't check backgrounds of the customers.
When you have the power to take a life in your hands that a gun represents, you, and you alone, have assumed the responsibility to handle it safely. Gun manufacturers and distributors bear no responsibility unless they have violated existing laws regarding the sale and distribution of firearms.
Every irresponsible twit who owns a gun and fails to assume the responsibility it demands, fuels the passions of, and support for, the anti-gun lobby. Every criminal who buys a gun illegally and uses it in the commission of a crime stoke the fires of the anti-gun lobby even higher. The responsibility for those actions lies with them and them alone...no one else.
I bought a shotgun Saturday at a gun show. Not only did I have to buy a membership in the gun club, who processed an instant background check before they would accept me as a member, but the dealer from whom I purchased the shotgun did another instant background check before he would sell the gun to me.
Dealers MUST conduct a check period..Collectors/individuals at gun shows do not. At least that's how it is here in Ga.
here in Iowa anyway there are two methods used. one you can to the dealer, fill out the proper background check paperwork, then wait like 3 days. or you can go to the court house, fill out an application for a permit to aquire, wait three days, then buy instantly for up to a year. the latter was my choice. cuts the waiting down when you buy multiple times a year.
but what these wackos fail to realize is i can kill someone jsut as fast with my hands, with a knife, with a bat, or crowbar...etc. why isnt there waiting periods or permits for those?
