Sad that the law enforcement people are being killed, but the bad guys will be able to get guns and proving that gun dealers have sold guns to bad guys will drag on. The US attorney general has not been able to do anything ATF’s Fast and Furious scandal
A federal operation dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

What difference will new legislation make in the efforts to control arms traffic, of course yesterday they passed a United Nations treaty on arms control. This kind of legislation will certainly help arms control right?

I don't see how background checks when guns are sold infringes on any rights and should help some.

Something needs to change. To do nothing is unconscionable.

Since people have the right to bear arms they also have the right to use them.
Of course someone is going to get shot here and there. That is what guns are for.

Default Guns

A friend of mine ,a retired Chief of Police in NJ believes as I do that the ONLY people that should be allowed to own guns are the military and law enforcement .


Everyone else with a weapon should be jailed . Yes there is the thought that jails are too full as is but they can find a way to accomodate .

In honor of this thread I think I'll buy another gun tomorrow, just because I can. I might even carry a concealed weapon (I'm licensed) when making the purchase.

Buy two or three and plenty of ammunition. Make sure it's all made in the USA.

And in typical fashion, the GOP will do NOTHING but pass gas.

It will take leadership from the democrats to actually accomplish anything.

Great. Buy a really expensive one and put it on your credit card. Then pay it off over months or years at exorbitant interest rates just to make a point.

I always pay cash for my firearms, although I do use my AMEX Platinum card for online ammunition purchases. Being a charge card, I have to pay it off in full each month.

But thanks for worrying about my possible misuse of credit cards!

I do like Ruger weapons, and they are all made in the USA. I avoid buying ammo made in other countries. I just don't trust it. I used to load my own ammo and may start doing it again.

Of course more background checks will help prevent more gun crimes. All criminals get their gun's legitimately you know. NOT!
