cool picture Dave

and thanks for pointing out that President Obama did for gun rights what no President in the past 40 years has done, actually signed into law legislation increasing gun carry rights

yep, Bush would not do it and he had 8 years to do so, but President Obama did in in his first
three years

thanks to Obama, I can and DO now carry on Amtrak trains and I also can carry in National Parks
in my state with my CCL

again, thanks for pointing that out Dave

So you can't just go to a different state, buy a gun, and bring it back to California without being a felon.

You can't even move here from a different state, and bring with you any non-California compliant guns you may have legally owned before, without being a felon.

chaz, you certainly can go to a different state. You are certainly not a felon, EXCEPT if you are caught, and found guilty in a court of law. You are not automatically a felon for simply doing it.

. I lived in and drove a rig out of San Bernardino during the Rodney King riots. The racial tensions were sky-high in San Berdo for weeks surrounding the verdict. At one point I opened my door to go out to my car to get to work, and four black dudes were just hanging out on and around my car. I called over, "I need to get to work. Can I get to my car?" Nothing provocative at all. I was as low-key and even humble in my request as possible, not wanting to start any trouble.

They started yelling all sorts of vile crap and dared me to come on down.

You really don't play well with others do you !!

I guess I've had my share of confrontational situations I would rather not have been part of.

I guess, be it gun or drill, it's important to be packin' the appropriate caliber and be prepared to use it....

To anti-gun Nutjobs....
(for the record, I'm not speaking from purely theoretical standpoint of someone who never been shot at. Personally, had been shot at from AK, rifles, and heavier weapons. Had, for example, bored patrol of about 8-9 government soldiers shoot many rounds at me near my place,from AKs, just for entertainment, hitting the air and ground around me as I was running--they are bored to just shoot people directly sometimes and want to have more entertainment before they kill you, etc)

Tioga - I am sorry you had to live through that type of situation(s).

Eddie, you are an idiot. A gun dealer can't sell to a criminal or a mental patient. Hasn't been able to for years. Quit blathering.

Try some reading comprehension before you call someone an idiot. I never said they could, I never even mentioned gun dealers, but when a gun dealer sells a gun to a straw purchaser, the manufacturer, distributor and dealer not only make the same profit, but the resulting crime with that gun increases legitimate sales too, it's a twofer. How else do you explain gun manufacturers' and dealers' opposition to universal background checks, which would restrict the second-hand gun market, and stimulate purchases of new guns?

It's also illegal to sell a gun to a criminal or a mental patient, in all fifty states.

Can you really not google "federal gun ownership restrictions"?

It is completely legal in almost all states to sell a gun to a complete stranger, criminal, lunatic or otherwise. It is only illegal if you know or have reasonable reason to believe the buyer is prohibited from possessing firearms. That's a loophole big enough to drive a Mack truck full of straw-purchased guns through.

This lunatic in LAX was just exercising his constitutionally protected right to oppose the government by force that gun nuts maintain is the explicit purpose of the second amendment. They should be cheering him.
