I'm OK with some good old-fashioned tar & feathering. As long as it's followed up with a running out of town on a rail.

I can tell you what its like to have a gun leveled at you with bad intent.


You go into a zone of sorts, breath stopping - heart beating like a drum roll and the blood in your ears sounding like niagra falls. Minutes/ seonds seem wayyyyy longer..You distinctly remember saying in your mind,, "ohwww sh#t.." An incident some 30 seconds long boiled down to the final three seconds.


Ive had a total of four guns pointed at me- two were irate or drunken ranchers on the carson river. I always knew when the situation could be talked down. Then you run into the one that you know wont be talked down. And when you realize it - you've got three seconds to react.

Glad you decided to return Doc. Albeit your difference in politics, your not a mamby pamby greasemonkey type to avoid the frey-- too many of "us" have left or been banned, and the place seems a little tame,,,for climbers..

Time to put up or shut up, a new Universal Background Check bill is being introduced in congress:

H.R.1217 - To protect Second Amendment rights, ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and provide a responsible and consistent background check process

If you actually care about reducing deaths and violence from guns, call your representative and tell them you support Universal Background Checks, and that they should too.

If not, please explain how being prohibited from selling guns to criminals or lunatics infringes on a right to self-defense, or even on any perceived right to amass an arsenal of firearms in preparation for the overthrow of a democratically elected government.

The problem isn't with the face-value of a "background check" to check for the behavior you've mentioned. The problem arises in the actual details and implementation of such a thing by our vile government... They don't care about you or me or anyone else. So such a well titled proposal is simply the wrapper on another sh1t sandwich being forced upon us.

Or maybe I'm wrong, maybe the government really is here to help this time. Cough... gag....

But in a perfect world I'd be all for the spirit of it.

TE what the heck do you think gun salesmen do NOW by calling in "background checks" to main frame offices? And why do so many get TURNED DOWN NOW for wanting to buy a weapon?


WE ALREADY HAVE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEMS THAT ARE WORKING.


Paper work on ANY GUN sold at any store has the info of the buyer, the serial number and type of gun listed.


What many bills are today is a back door attempt at a FED registry of guns- so that they may take them away easier if they ever get that chance.

Ron, it's not universal. You know private party sales are not required to pass NICS in NV.

No they are not. An one of the many reasons is you have to have a FED ID number assigned to you as a gun salesman or store that carries guns. That number must be given out when making the back ground check calls, or you get ZERO INFO. That number and permit cost $$$$ per year to support the background check facilities. Plus a per all fee...

It would take a LARGE army of people to handle every private sale by every citizen doing so. If you wanted to sell your good buddy that 22 single shot - you would have to fill out gawd knows how much paper work, apply for a number, pay for it, then wait to get some manner of permit then sell that gun at zero profit by then to your buddy.. I can see new "taxes" being levied against good honest gun owners across America all in an effort by the feds to catalogue us all. Sorry Johnny but the idea is absurd and wont help any crime rate statistics there are.


And of course I will mention that CRIME STATISTICS are going down in gun friendly zones across the USA. With the open borders and tremendous black markets out there, penalizing legal gun owners haven't yet, and will never help. The GOVT knows this as well as you or I.




Can you name ONE gun crime that was done with a gun purchased through a private party sale? Don't you think that info would be center point to any such legislation?






edit: In my times, I have sold, to private partys,, 10 guns. To 10 different guys. NONE have ever had any issues with gun crimes. None. They are all law abiding productive citizens of this country. Anecdotal yet repeatable by hundreds of thousands. All this current effort is simply baby steps to more taxes and govt control over you.

I see Ron's point in not expanding background checks beyond sales from dealers

but then why should there be even background checks for new sales through dealers ?

considering that

we all know that anyone can buy a gun easily and quickly right through their newspaper
with no background check, therefore background checks don't stop gun crime

also, criminal ignore laws, so having existing or new laws doesn't stop crime either

In America, people will get what they want. Just like pot smokers have for decades, or drinkers that started with hooch makin contraptions in the hills. THey flock to the bars and then drive their cars. If some one whos already planning a crime decides they need a gun, they will find one and 9.999 times out of 10, they will do so sans dealers or gun show sellers. They DONT LIKE receipts of Any KIND...


The true intent behind these new laws in the end, is Gun registration. There will always be those guns out there from the decades past that were never registered- purchased far before any gun background checks or laws about them. ANd those are in the multi millions. And when our borders are so open that children stroll over them, imagine how easy it is to smuggle in small arms from suppliers in 60 other countries..

The FULLY auto AKs that the sheriffs confiscated from gang members at the shooting range a while back were not bought at a gun show, nor a honest private party nor a gun store. They were smuggled from Mexico..
