I fill out a 4473 when I buy one, there's your registration.
No to gun registration. No to private sales. A gun is property, to be sold as desired. Slippery slope remember? So is a car, but I have to transfer that title when I sell it someone, don't I? then you say: 'But cars are not protected by the second amendment!' Then I say: I don't care.

Again, how useful was a background check to the last shooting? From what I understand, he didn't get the weapon form the place where he failed the background check. That likely means he went the private sale or gun show route where a background check is unnecessary. So you mandate background checks...Jump to post
Get over the crap with the NRA. The NRA doesn't go about killing anyone. Name one mas shooter that was an NRA member. You're not going to find it.

There you go with the assumptions again. But you are wrong, again. I think violence needs to be addressed.

There is no loophole. An Illinois resident cannot buy a gun in Indiana. Illegal. Against an existing law. And how are Illinois cops supposed to know? Laws can't deter if you can't get caught.

I'm sorry if you are uncomfortable with the information provided.

Fine and dandy in Spain, and wherever else irresponsible gun owners lurk, but in the US, it is in the Constitution. So as I said before, good luck. As for the NRA badge, I'm not an NRA member.

Great. So that would require action in congress. New rules and regulations and I think would have the overwhelming support of American's.

That's already illegal, though. The buddy in this case would be facing felony charges for supplying firearms to people who are not allowed to own them.

A handgun permit is issued by the county that you live in. If you live in Chicago and can't get a permit there, you can't just go to a gun store across the border and buy a handgun. They are legally prohibited from selling to you. But all you need is a buddy with a residence in Indiana. They can bu...Jump to post
Once again, if you can't buy a handgun in Chicago, you can't buy one in Wisconsin or Indiana. It is illegal to do so. Your argument is irrelevant. A person in Indiana can get a gun mush easier than a person in Chicago, no? For example, in Illinois, a background check is required for a private sale,...Jump to post
Saw on the news this morning that the Odessa shooter was not eligible to own a firearm. Once again, the gun laws aren't the problem. Enforcement is.

How is that working in Chicago, DC and Baltimore? They don't, so your argument just went into the honey bucket Chicago is 45 minutes from Indiana and an hour for Wisconsin.
