    LaPierre: Crazy people shouldn’t be allowed to own guns… unless they buy them at gun shows…

    you’re more than a little off on that statment. Gun shows do not have any background checks or liability to the sellers…

    Iggy Pop is the real king of Motor City rock and roll. Nugent’s music sucks. And he’s a draft dodger.

    Thank you Mr. Anderson. I’ve been saying this since Mr. LaPierre called for a lunatic registry. Who gets to decide which lunatics go on the list?

    Anyone here want Mr. Nugent for a next-door neighbor? Mr. Ima, perhaps?

    ^Several people have replied to you explaining that situation.

    I’ve stated it before, and I’ll state it again: Ima is what results when the fetus is starved for oxygen.

    “I’m still waiting for any liberal to explain why Chicago has the Highest Gun Violence Rate of any City in the Nation (Chicago’s Mayor confirmed this fact) albeit they have the Strictest Gun Control Laws of any City in the Nation?”

    No need to wait. Many people have explained this one to you, more than once, myself included.

    It’s one thing to take a principaled stand. It’s another thing to continue to spout the same misconceptions/misrepresentations when you are shown the correct answer.

    Funny; I’m a liberal and I agree with most of what you say, although I think the details could be tweaked. Now, if these ideas are common-sense, which they are, and if liberals are lacking in common sense, does it follow that conservatives would be willing to accept these common-sense approaches?

    But they don’t. Please explain. Perhaps, as in almost all things political, the middle is better than either extreme?

    Dallas has a gun violence rate that is comparable to Chicago. Why? I thought loose gun laws and more people with open and conceal carry permits made everyone safer? Your argument is meaningless because the opposite is not the answer either.
    Also, as far as number of murders, New York and LA are higher. And as far as gun violence rate (number of deaths per 100,000), that city is New Orleans. Chicago does not enter the top ten.

    As a member of a Democratic Gun Owners caucus, I tire of “conservatives” constantly shouting “liberals” want to take away our guns, and the idiocy of saying Chicago leads in gun violence despite strict laws. Both positions are as false as believing Nugent isn’t nuts.

    BTW: went to a gun show, with instant check, bought a .38 Ruger and walked out in less than five minutes, from dealer. Other shows I’ve been to have been “private parties”, and no checks were happening, also, “after market” parts for semi-auto weapons have long been popular to convert them.

    It IS the insanity of such as Nugent that DOES enter into the “gun debate”, and shows that some folks most wanting loose controls, are the very psychotics who should not have access to firearms.

    WRONG or LIE however you want to put that. Background checks are not done at gun shows if the seller is not a licensed dealer. So are you lying or just ignornat of the facts concerning your statement?

    Is a background check required if you purchase a gun from your next door neighbor and neither of you are licensed dealers?

    I sold my weapons as I had a collection that I decided was overly large.
    I did not do any background checks on the buyers, I wouldn’t know how.
    If it is the law I was supposed to check then I am a lawbreaker just the same as the 30 to 40 people at most gunshows selling their guns.
    Spouting rules that can not be enforced if they did exist is not facing reality.

    “……..Background checks = Registration = Harassment* = Confiscation……….*”

    So, I can sue the state for harassment because I registered my car? When does it get confiscated? And the whole point of employers doing background checks on me (I’m a contractor, so I go through at least 2 a year) is so I can be confiscated? After I get harassed? I don’t see how any of these logically connect.
    The point is, anything POTENTIALLY dangerous in this country is regulated – cars, prescription drugs, exotic pets – why are guns different? Registering them only means that when something happens, a weak link in the system can be traced and repaired.
    How many conservatives on this site have been saying the problem was with our mental health system? Why prevent something that could potentially spot the mentally ill BEFORE they buy a gun?

    If you buy from a dealer at a Virginia Gun show you have to fill out the proper papers. If you buy from Jonny Come Lately and his private collection of guns you don’t have to do anything but give him money and walk away.
