    Hack. Anyways it might have been straw-man purchases. That is a problem, and I hope they fix it. Of course, they only seem to be worried with the shit that does not even matter..

    That's why they are questioning where he obtained them...like did he get them through the gun show loophole.

    Well, we have laws on the books now that prevent him from owning that stuff, and from anyone giving/selling him that stuff. So, the only trick is finding him and that stuff. But so much of that "stuff" exists in America, that banning it would never make it go away, so he'd end up with it anyway.

    Enforce the laws we have now, harshly.

    But yeah, that dude does look like the poster boy for the Tea Party. Im sure he rants about "guberming speeeendin" all the time, and points out how every government employee in his city are living off his tax dollars, no, not the collective pool of all taxpayers (including those govt employees paying their own taxes), no no no, in his mind, they live and eat off HIS personal tax dollars alone.

    The "gun show loophole" is a bullshit straw man argument, tossed around to make the ignorant sound like they know anything.

    So few weapons are bought and sold by private sellers at gun shows (believe me, I've been to my share of them), as to make that particular boogerman laughable.

    You would quite literally have to go to dozens of gun shows at untold locations, in order to find the right private seller(s) to sell you exactly the weaponry you're looking for.

    And yet the only statistics you can find points to 40+% of gun sales as being made through "private" sales.

    Universal background checks on ALL sales. It's what the American people want.
