Went To The Gun Show Saturday

(1/25) > >>

Bucfucious:
Enough talk, I went to see for myself. Truth is, in the most liberal state in the union towards firearms, and with the highest rate of ownership, I could not purchase a weapon without a criminal background check. There is no "gun show loophole," only lack of enforcement.

With the choices being to enforce the existing laws or pass more laws that won't be enforced, it's an easy decision.

 ???

and another gun thread is off and running . . .  a poll cant be far behind . .  .

Biggs3535:
Thanks for the update, Mr. Mises.  Out of curiosity, when you swung by the 7-Eleven on the home from that gun show, did they also require background check when you purchased a case of beer?  I hear it's even tougher to get one of those nowadays.

Bucfucious:
Call me Illuminator all you want. Go whine to the mods like the little **CENSORED** you are.

In the meantime, maybe you could stick to the topic of the thread instead of trolling? Any licensed dealer is required by law to run a background check, even at a gun show. Those that don't are breaking the law. Passing more laws doesn't stop people who break the law, enforcement does. Passing more laws just makes it harder on the people that do follow the rules, while doing nothing to deter those that ignore them.

CalcuttaRain:
lol, you guys provide a bunch of entertainment. 

enjoy

"You can also watch videos from the 2009 Gun Show Undercover Investigation where 19 of 30 private sellers - 63% - broke the law by completing a sale to a buyer who they thought could not pass a background check:"

Bucfucious:
"Broke the law" being the relevant phrase there. How do you stop people with no regard for the law from breaking it? Passing more laws places a burden on those that follow the law while doing nothing to deter those who break it. Your desire to punish is focused on the wrong people. Unless, that is, your real agenda is to discourage the law-abiding from exercising their constitutional rights.

Now post another article about how people are breaking the law, and then claim that more laws would stop them.

As if there's ever been any doubt about that.

So how will passing new background check laws change this since they just ignored the existing ones?

It also looks to me like those "private" sellers were at the very least pushing the envelope of the definition and probably could have been arrested for that alone. That gun show is nothing like I have been to in Florida with "private" sellers with that many same/similar weapons. Maybe it's different in Arizona but I cannot comment.

Not sure what the whole magazine thing was about either. He bought a magazine, so what? What law/rule/regulation did he break? Um, none.
