@Absalom

I beg to differ!  IF you had said since Calvin Coolidge you would have been more correct.

Damn, I immediately thought of Coolidge when I was reading his post!!

Will be waiting to see how this is enforced in Oakland, Chicago, Boston, etc

I'm sure it will be on the news.

How will it be enforced everywhere?

Say I sell one of my rifles to my hunting buddy Henry with no background check. How will the authorities know?  And years later Henry sells the same rifle to Jim. Jim wants to follow the law and a background check is done on the purchase. Will Henry now be nailed as he is not in the "Data Base" as having purchased the firearm that he is now selling? Is this leading to total firearm registration?

Pastors pay taxes.  The church turns in W2 for them.  The tax exempt is only for the church, which is non-profit.

@thackney

And in many cases the pastor owns the church.

The Rev-Rund Al Sharpton didn't pay any taxes for years. Maybe even decades. I can't remember for sure. I do remember he was finally arrested for tax-dodging,and I THINK he beat the rap.

I’ll laugh, while they try to stuff everything of mine into that clown car, then shoot the tires out with an airgun.

@edpc

I confess. One of my dirty little secrets is I have always wanted to own a mini or a Fiat 600.

I feel so dirty.

Universal Background checks ONLY works with total registration of all guns. 

It does nothing to control stolen or illegal guns.

My father used to drive those little air cooled Fiats, at least until we got big enough we wouldn't all fit.

 About that time we were going down a mud road with dad at the wheel and three of us packed in there, on our way to some deer stands when dad slid off the road into the ditch. We all got out, picked up the car and put it back on the road, got in and proceeded...

THe next car was a '67 Rambler American, first I ever recall him buying new.

My father had a Renault Dauphine. By the end, it was held together with Scotch tape. Like the Fiat, it could have been picked up by a couple of people.

I’ve got a Mini Countryman All4 S.  It’s a turbo charged gokart. Fun as hell to drive and lots of room.

CNN: Stronger Background Checks Would Not Have Stopped Latest Mass Shootings

This has got to be killing them.


No, because they use that fact to buttress their argument for a ban of certain types, with the ultimate goal of repealing 2A.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Bans won't work, either.

In fact, they are likely to make things even worse (nothing for the mentally deranged seeking that rush of "power" like a wide open herd of potential and unarmed victims).

In the absence of effective citizen resistance (a factor in selecting targets and standard M.O. for mass shooters) I would expect an increase in such incidents, not for any of them to stop.

Here I agree with you, @Smokin Joe .  Bans on classes of semi-automatic firearms represent bad, feel-good policy and won't do a bit of good other than permit politicians to virtue-signal.

EXACTLY! It is the old "2 steps forward to communism,then one step back to look like we were reasonable and compromised" strategy the left uses so well.
