although the article has a familiar ring . . .

Study finds vast online marketplace for guns without background checks

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/new-study-finds-vast-online-marketplace-for-guns-without-background-checks/2013/08/05/19809198-fd73-11e2-9711-3708310f6f4d_story.html

This is a NEWS piece but it is about a report prduced by an ardent ANTI-GUN group. That said, if you wonder if the issue has teeth, look no further than the panicked response from the NRA found in the article:

The NRA says in its statement that banning these sales is effectively prohibiting advertisements, “which is a direct attack on both the First and Second Amendments.”


That argument is almost hysterical . . .  it went from the NRA saying  "yeah, but dealers who sell online must conduct backgound checks" to  the response from Third Way that "most firearms sales facilitated at classified sites including Armslist.org do not go through dealers because they are person-to-person transactions" to .  .  the NRA responding with, essentially, "oh yeah, well you're trying to ban advertising, which is a violation of the First Amendment"

They should fire the person that came up with that . . .

Awesome logic there. You could basically make up any b.s. you want to, and if they respond that b.s.  becomes truth.

Brought to you by a mind made of cheez.
