    FAR more people die every year from the stuff in your liquor cabinets than guns.

    Guns are beautiful, and have done far less damage than Jack Daniels!

    "at will" doesn't mean we don't pay attention. If you buy too many handguns in too few days, we report it automatically to the ATF, as we are required to. And the purchaser never knows about it :)

    Anyone can buy them at gun shows. Anyone can buy them and give them as gifts without a background check.

    Well 40K Dead Americans each year has it's charms.
