Why aren't background checks done in private sales? They aren't allowed. But note that while he admits the gun may have been passed down from the felon's father, he makes no call for laws against fathers dying. A law against private sales would be no more effective.
"Why aren't background checks done in private sales? They aren't allowed."This is a great point, and one that MikeyBoy continues to dodge. Why isn't there a mechanism for those that want to sell their guns responsibly to do so? Why do organizations such as CSGV, CeaseFire, and the Brady Campaign oppose this?
Only you gun-rights fanatics oppose background checks on all transfers. It could easily be required that for every private sale, the two parties involved go to the nearby FFL dealer and pay him 10 bucks to do the honors.But, YOU don't what that.
I'm not talking about a requirement MikeyBoy. I'm talking about voluntary NICS checks. All of the above organizations oppose them.
Mikeb, the problem is that we can't trust your intentions. We won't give any ground because we know that your side will only demand more. We also refuse to help you create a list of who has what firearm.
This guy is a jackass, "this weapon was either passed down from his father or purchased at a Monroe gun show"well which is it jack ass, if it is a gun that his father purchased at a Monroe gun show, and he gave it to his son, try doing a little dectective work jackhole..... dad is looking at 10 in the federal pen if that is the case....
Hitler would be proud of you mike. 2nd Amendment. Get over it.
