Cabelas in Nevada can't / won't sell you any guns if you're a California resident, Mr Milktosat. You can only legally buy a gun in your state of residence.

You would have wasted your gas DMT. You cannot receive a gun over the counter in Nevada as a California Resident from Cabelas. If you want it now you would have to go to a private sale. If your going to comment on the law, best to know what it is.

You're right, Mr Anderson.

You can buy the gun in Nevada, but you won't be able to take it home with you. You'll have to take delivery of it at your local gun shop, after being shipped from Nevada to California. Subject to all California waiting periods, background checks, legal specs, etc.

When I joined the NRA over fifty years ago their magazine might have as a cover a beautiful Parker shotgun on a nest of autumn leaves. Fast forward to current times, with a nasty AR-15 on that same bed of autumn leaves. Look inside. Ads showing hunters wearing camo and boonie caps, even occasionally dark smudges on faces, carrying assault-type flashlights and weapons (not firearms). We live in an increasingly militarized nation, with many Special Ops wanna-be's, including lots of law enforcement. And then Bill O'reilly has as a special guest the SEAL sniper who wrote a best seller and became a national hero. I'm not criticizing the late gentleman - he saved many American lives and we should be thankful for his bravery and skills. But it's all part of an emerging picture of America that makes me uneasy.


.....interesting.

Close all schools. That will fix the problem.

The problem can't be with the guns, as guns don't shoot people by themselves (Usually!!! LOL!)...

;-)



EDITED:

Nature is on to something with the idea of closing schools...

But I think it would be better to just eliminate stupid people...

Global cleansing...




NEXT EDIT:

Start with the Republican Politicians (Not the Republicn public in general as they are all just totally misinformed and super ignorant)...

And am I racist to point out that there seems to be a trend of BLACK YOUTHS killing white people?

Yeah, and the meth problem can't be blamed on the drug, as meth doesn't smoke itself.


But now, we take on other countries low life

ah yes, NOW we take them on... a convenient answer designed to fit into the mental void possessed by all right leaning uneducated wannabe tea bag sniffers.

"and the meth problem can't be blamed on the drug, as meth doesn't smoke itself."...

Believe it or not, you're 100% correct!!!...

People start out with issues that take them into the world of drugs...

It's NOT the drug itself that makes a person CHOOSE that path...

;-)



EDITED:

My son and Daughter have been exposed to Meth MANY times...

Neither CHOOSES to use them...

and yet METH is still prevalent...

hmmm...

Not true. If meth had undesirable effects on people they would not choose that path. The drug absolutely influences the choice. Obviously it also requires the participant.

Guns have the property of making violent impulses easier to express. They absolutely influence certain people's choices to commit heinous crimes.

BEFORE you even take that first hit, SOMETHING has lead you to that path...



EDITED:

For many, many, many, MANY people, METH does in FACT have UNDESIREABLE effects...

Jesus.

And if meth didn't have the properties so many find appealing, nobody would choose to continue down that path.

And if guns didn't make it infinitely easier to kill people, nobody would choose guns as their tool of destruction.


Sure, people will get addicted to substances... or snap and have violent episodes. Would you rather they have easy access to coffee and weed, or meth and heroin? Would you rather they swing their fists or a baseball bat or a pipe, or spray bullets into a crowd with an AR-15?


Saying guns aren't the problem because there will always be people who choose to commit violent crimes is ridiculous. Easy access to guns is precisely why there are so many firearm deaths in this country. It ain't rocket science.

Gun control is desperately needed. Only the NRA lobby and the bought and paid for politicians keep it from happening when the vast majority of American support it.

My wife is a teacher, so these stories hit close to home.

I really don't care about your right to carry a gun when my family is endangered by it in my opinion.

Ron, your fantasy world(s) are obnoxious to say the least. Guns aren't going to be made illegal overnight. How about you try reality for a change?

Currently background checks take about 30 seconds. Don't you think we could do a bit better? Maybe check mental health records? Local LEO reports? The technology exists. I KNOW we can do better.

Currently you can buy 1 new gun a month. The vast majority of guns used in crimes come from straw purchases, likely from folks who buy 1 gun a month. Honestly, who the fuk needs to buy 1 gun a month? I don't know anyone who buys more than 1 gun about every 5 years.

Stop playing your fantasy game of slippery slope strawman tea bagger and start finding some middle ground. Learn to make compromises for other members of society... god knows we all make compromises for you and your kind.

ah yes, because growing up in the 60's is just like growing up today. So there isn't a gun problem... the problem is with the Rx drugs? Right! How many people are murdered with Ritalin each year?

I've known plenty of crazy fukers in my life. I guarantee easy access to guns makes them far more dangerous, regardless of guns.



It may take you and your fellow geniuses 45 min to fill out the paper work, but it only takes 30 sec to do the actual background check.

The FFLs will provide the descriptive information requested on the ATF Form 4473, which is required by law to be completed and signed by every prospective firearm transferee. The FFL will receive a response that the transfer may proceed or is delayed. This response is typically provided within 30 seconds.
