    Oh, well. In that case, somebody tell the millitary and police to sell their guns. They are useless. No point in having them, right. Can't stop bullets.

    :lol:

    You actually have to have the same type of background check run for gate access at military posts. At Army posts like Fort Hood, an MP checks your ID, registration, and insurance and records it on a form and passes it to a civilian guard at a computer who initiates the background check. Usually in 5-10 minutes, it comes back approved and they issue you a gate pass.

    Well yeah ... They can check a database ... But I was talking about all the stuff on the ATF Form 4473.
    Section 11 of Form 4473 has 15 questions ... And not all of the answers for those 15 questions are in a verifiable database.

    Where some of the questions not covered by a database could be investigated ... Not in the 30 minutes required.

    I am pretty sure he was talking about the M1 Garand ... Probably not the M1 Abrams, nor the M1 grenade.

    Right . The pentagon uses the troops as figurative “human shields “ to protect them from criticism .

    “How dare you challenge the military ! You hate the troops you monster !”

    Meanwhile the pentagon can literally get away with murder .
