It can all be told in one word...mandate!If these jack-offs who want to require NICS checks at gun shows are willing to pay for providing the switchboard and pay for the extra phone lines compliance would require - or alternatively, reimburse the cost of the cellphone calls to the sellers compliance would require, that might be fair. Either that, or they need to pay to install a bank of 1-800 number lines to NICS for gun show use. But if the morons want this put into law, make the legislators pay for their stupidity by making each legislator pay for it out of their own pockets, not out of the public purse!
I agree 100%,however,if you put them all in a bag and shake it up and pour them out you will not be able to tell one from the other.These ididos are F$#@!&* amazing. Even where guns are banned or heavily regulated (Chicago, DC, NY, Etc.) the mayors blame the guns, and lament "if only" we made more rules to stop the guns coming into our cities things would get better. Registration and banning is the goal of these clowns.
So, if guns could come into your cities from another state, what would keep them from coming into our country through our very leaky borders ? Oh, sorry, that's applying logic. If criminals commit crimes with guns they acquire illegally, how are more laws for honest citizens going to work (other than making our citizens have more trouble defending themselves). Sorry, logic again. Oh, we'll really have to prosecute criminals ? Don't want to do that...... Have citizens exercise their god-given right of self defense ? Perish the thought.
Just remember come election time that these folks are supposed to be working for us. If they support stupid things, vote 'em out.
