    Im looking at guns. I want one. BUT...after checking all over california, ya gotta jump thru so many hoops, its ridiculous! Being a criminal is easier to get a gun than a "law abiding" citizen.
    Gotta take a frigging test after studying a stupid book they loan ya, gotta prove you can handle a firearm, gotta load and unload just so or fergit it, gotta find a place that doesnt charge ya an extra 100 bucks to register it, gotta pay 25 bucks for a background check, gotta wait 10 days and even then TPTB may deny ya, gotta get an affidavit you have a California Approved lock box, and ya hafta have a safetly lock before you can fetch it out of the shop IF you are approved.

    WTF???? No wonder I hate California. Is it like that in other states or are we the only ones that stink?

    if it keeps someone who's nuts or who's a spouse abuser or has a criminal record from getting a gun, i'm ok with it.

    what's the problem with a background check?

    you have to jump through more hoops for a drivers' license. *shrug*

    That's what the federal background check does and in most states it's free. The rest of the shit CA piles on top is completely unnecessary bull shit that is simply politically motivated ant-gum measures as FBI studies have shown over and over those extra steps do absolutely nothing to lower the crime/murder rate and in fact prevent honest law abiding citizens the means to properly defend themselves against criminals.
