That is a slippery slope. There are already laws that prohibit felons from owning guns, and a background check IS required from any licensed dealer who sells guns. If my neighbor wanted to sell me a gun, no paperwork is required as neither of us are dealers.

The Jews in Germany didn't think they'd ever end up on concentration camps when their guns were taken either. You trust too much in mankind.

My main problem with the govt calling for background checks is EVERY YEAR there are thousands of prohibited people who try to buy guns, and when the background check flags them, NOTHING IS DONE.

If it were REALLY about keeping the guns away from bad guys, don't you think we should be approaching these people and charging them for attempting to buy a gun when it is illegal for them to own one?

Eric Holder is trying to make it legal for felons to vote again. Wonder if he feels the same way about felons owning firearms?

Let's face it, criminals, BY DEFINITION, break the law. If you think ANY additional laws will deter a criminal, look back at the definition of a criminal, and get back to me. Drugs have been illegal in this country for how long? Boy that's really stopped the criminal element, hasn't it?

May be time to bring this thread to life again if it's not too controversial, looks like some questionable comments have already been made. Don't know why some things can't be discussed without being obnoxious as if I haven't ever been guilty of that.

the problem with any subject is you will folks that like it and others that don't
and that tends to grow things into arguments,a s one side try's to make the other side look BAD or WRONG or??
thus heated debates get out of control fast
Logic, is something most folks don't agree on or HAVE any of?

and then add in how many take things personal, when there is NO reason for them to take it that way at all
words on a screen folks, really have NO harm to anyone, unless you let them!

but this simple fact seems to miss most folks that read things on a screen today!


guns are just a tool, nothing evil about them ! and without them, America would NOT be what it is today!

like em or not there here, and will never get rid of all that are out there

so, if you like em, fine,
if you don't
stay away from them
NO one makes you buy any or own any!

law enforcement will always have them and they are just HUMANS , as are the nuts that use them for bad reasons
and in case anyone doesn';t know this, MANY law enforcement folks break the law too,
SO
till there is some magical way to stop humans from doing harm to each other

banning a TOOL like a gun is useless!
proof of this simple logic is, the FACT there are NO guns in prisons around the world(for prisoners I am talking)
and there is tons of crime, violence and deaths!(drugs and sexual assaults too)

100% ZERO guns,
yet all the problems folks TRY and blame on guns are still there

so, HOW Does banning guns again STOP crime?? murder, death, violence??

FACT, it doesn't!

the problem isn't the TOOL , of a GUN,
the problem is , HUMANS just cannot get along and or don't know hope to cope with things without MANY needing to turn to violence!

human nature
fix this, stop wasting time trying to ban a tool!
Just MY 2 cents on this subject LOL

Once, just for the sake of argument, I stated that if one could uninvent the gun (you can't), take all the guns out there now out of circulation (you can't), and keep people from making new ones (you can't) THEN AND ONLY THEN would I feel like I wouldn't need a firearm for self defense.


Let's face it. The leftist idea of "no guns, no crime" and "everyone chips in and everyone is comfortable and cared for" sound great in theory. The problem is, as Mrbb put it, simply put, humans and human nature. The leftist ideas are simply not realistic.


My wife quickly pointed out that a much larger assailant could still harm her without a gun, and that her gun is the only way she could protect herself from such, even if the assailant was unarmed.


Can't argue with that.

Illinois has legislation in the works to include a check of your social media with background checks. Last I heard was in Feb., haven't heard anything new on it.


It's a slippery slope.

there going to IMO< come up with new ways to screw with you before you can buy a gun
they pass silly laws and likes, to make the DUMB folks that THINK these things will SOLVE problems
there like shiny objects, to distract the morons!

there are already so many laws now that they don't enforce making more doesn't change the problem with anyone using a gun illegal, or doing harm with it!
I could care less if they wish to look into MY social media background too by the way!

I doubt anything I have ever sad is a worry or reason to deny me a firearm .
and if you are talking things that should reflect on one NOT having a gun, maybe all the better

let the idiots that want to put there foot in there mouth so to speak online or?? maybe learn to have better self control!

this need to be famous anymore is a scary thing
as sure seems to me that if someone isn;t smart enough or talented above average
all they do is DUMB and DUMBER things to get noticed and get the attention they seem to CRAVE or need!

and this is a slippery slope, and maybe what is part of the problem today

why everyone now a days seem to need so much attention and fame
I have NO clue why!
but there is no shortage of folks being rewarded for NOTHING these days, and that should be alarming
as what message is that sending anyone
that they need to keep doing bigger and more shocking(dumber ) things to get that ATTENTION??
