    I hope the pizza guys don’t get upset that he’s ripping off their name.

    They do exist.
    They sell you your gun after a thorough background check and an appropriate waiting time. They keep records in accordance to ATF wishes that can’t be enforced. They have a shooting range out back where they teach you how to use and handle your firearm, and even how to properly clean and store it to keep your family and yourself safe. They report suspected “straw purchasers” and hold monthly clinics on gun safety where they inspect guns even if they didn’t sell it to the purchaser to make sure it’s clean and in good working order.
    I love those guys.
    I just don’t know them personally…friends of mine have met the good guys tho.

    However, if you are mentally ill, or have a criminal record, or don’t have time to wait for your gun before you off that annoying g/f or b/f or coworker, the Hampton Gun Show is March 22-24. You can buy your gun from a person who is renting space, pick up some ammo, and get on the national news all in the same day.

    There’s a story about Mr. Boehner being being FOR universal background checks until his staff reminds him that he’s against them.

    I hope none of you are mentally ill or angry at someone. If someone actually does buy and use a gun to cause mayhem from the gun show now, I’m going to feel very bad. They often stock some great antique weapons though. I still want a Henry Rifle and an early edition Colt Peacemaker. Functional, fun, and funky. And I’m not afraid of background checks, registration forms or waiting periods.
    Respectfully,

    I am a gun owner and I have a CCW permit. I am for any gun laws that can be passed because I understand that there are 11,000 plus people killed by guns in America every year. I dont cling to my gun with reduciulous reasoning. The coarse I took to obtain my CCW could have been passed by a three year old, it was a joke. The portion of the class teaching you how to actually shoot lasted about 5 minutes and constituted you being able to hit a target about15 feet away with a .22 calibur hand gun thus I know for a fact there are people in my state walking around carrying a gun that are mostly clueless as to how to properly use it. There were people in my class that admitted they had not even fired a gun until the testing portion of the class yet not one person failed, what a joke. We also do not have a waiting period in my state. You can walk right into a gun shop and leave with a weapon. We know how dangerous guns are, should it really be that easy to get one? Making it tough to purchase a gun does not infringe on anyones rights so why are the NRA and gun nuts so against it? You got me on that one folks. I have my CCW basically because I purchased a gun for recreational use and figured I might as well have all the licesning that goes with it. The actual classes and process to purchase my weapon were absolutly rediculously easy and a joke.

    Trying to answer the question of how many people get killed with guns in the U.S., I would think that would be an easy question to answer.
    But the people who put out statistics come up with different ways to count. They separate suicides from homicides and accidents from intentional.
    You might have taken the 11,000 figure from the Center for Disease Control. Other sites come up with numbers as high as 30,000.
    It makes me wonder if the government is misleading us, again.

    @Rockngolfer

    I will have to go back and see where that figure came from, it may haave just been the number of murders and not just total deaths.

    The person who buys the gun legally then gives or sells it to someone who never would pass a background check. We need accountability.

    Keep in mind – laws passed at the NRA’s ‘behest’ make it legally impossible to maintain accurate records of ‘anything’ gun so blame congress for passing such restrictive laws, not the ‘ethereal’ government. Oh yeah – we are the government -at least those of us who vote. Sometimes one side prevails , sometimes the other.

    That’s strange. The class I took lasted YEARS. Frankly, I still attend. But that’s just me. My brother teaches those classes. Yes he fails those who don’t make the grade. The class offered at my shooting range requires 200 rounds for the gun you will own and carry. Still, that isn’t a lot. I practice at the LEAST once a month. Now that DHS has all the bullets it harder to keep up that slack schedule.

    But all in all you have an excellent point. Before you allow a person to walk around with the ability to kill, they should be trained in ways to avoid that eventuality and be able to hit their target consistently.

    side note my training began when I was 8, my first gun (shotgun) at 12 with the task of providing fowl for the family, my teacher’s were my father, the US Army and an expert marksman on a competition pistol team (I didn’t make the team to shoot in matches but did make the practice group with the chance to be an alternative).

    Well in MO you have the option to use your own gun or the .22 that the instructor supplies. Also these instructors are part of indepentdent buinesses, they are not goverment employees. I am sure if the word got out that Instructor X was failing people who took his class he would not have many others signing up so in my opinion that is why no one here in MO fails thier test. My basic point was the whole thing was just way too easy. I am all for everyone’s 2nd amendment rights but along with that right it should be harder to buy a gun than a loaf of bread and here in MO it is not. Guns kill people, that is what they are made to do. Owning something that can dispatch a human life in seconds should be difficult, period.
