this is a well written and accurate article.

unfortunately it will go over anti's heads.
i believe gun control is just done by politicians to show they are doing something.
it really has nothing to do with peoples safety.
there are already more than enough laws to keep criminals from getting guns legally.
but explaining that to anti's is like spitting in the wind

Thank God they closed all those gun show "loop holes" that allowed guns to make it to the street.

Especially here in NY we're all so much SAFEr than in Chicago

I've started a new approach. I've been watching numbers and statistics thrown back and forth since the early 90's. Went through this crap with somebody last week bombarding me with "statistics". I told him,

"Look. It's settled by the US Supreme Court. It's and individual right protected by the Second Amendment. It's done. Let's move on.

You want to keep criminals and the insane from possessing firearms. I want to keep criminals and the insane from possessing firearms. I agree with you 100%.

Give me something beyond, 'We need reasonable, sensible, or common sense guns laws', 'Because those are meaningless empty words that make for good TV.

Here I am at the table, Tell me what laws you want in place that will keep criminals and the insane from possessing firearms and explain to me step-by-step how I'm going to exercise my right protected by the Second Amendment under these laws. Let's go from there."

Needless to say, he couldn't. Because he don't know a damn thing beyond "sensible", "reasonable", or "common sense".

"A kid can just buy an Uzi on eBay!" - direct quote from the wife of a guy I know during a discussion about the SAFE act.

So background checks are working to keep legal firearms out of the hands of criminals - good. So that means they will punish law abiding citizens fror the sins of the criminals since we are the only ones obeying the law - makes perfect sense.
