Local news reports

Investigators believe the gun used by Jody Hunt in his shooting spree that left four people dead before he killed himself last Monday was obtained online.
Monongalia County Sheriff Al Kisner told the Morgantown Dominion Post that the 9mm handgun was purchased from a licensed dealer four years ago.  The buyer kept it for three years then sold it online to Hunt.  Kisner says the gun transactions were traced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Hunt was a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing a firearm.  Kisner told the paper that the original owner will not face charges because he was unaware that Hunt was a felon. Hunt, 39, was once convicted and served prison time for holding an ex-girlfriend hostage at gunpoint in Winchester, Va.
Police have been researching Hunt’s past, which is littered with violent incidents including a standoff with police in Winchester, Va., in 1999.
This is the kind of guy the gun-rights fanatics want to have access to guns. Some of the whiny liars pretend the main impact of background check laws would be to unfairly infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens, you know, all those who share guns and store them in each other's safes.

The main impact of background check laws is guys like Jody Hunt would have one less option for guying guns. And that's a good thing.

Another impact is lawful gun owners would no longer be able to say with a shoulder shrug what the last lawful owner of this guns said - I didn't know he was a dangerous maniac.

    But you can have the "main impact" without the everyday impact on innocuous gun ownership that we keep "whining" about. But you guys would rather turn town Colburn's compromise that you could have had in place nationally by now in order to chase state by state i594 style infringements on gun rights. That gives me a pretty good idea what the main goal actually is.

    1. No it doesn't and your tireless repetition doesn't make it so.

    2. Why aren't you mad at Harry Reid for squashing Colburn's bill then? You could have had national universal background checks for a year now.

    3. Bullshit. It never would have passed anyways, which is why Reid didn't push it.
