I think Zer0 should show good faith and go into Mexico himself to recover all the firearms H0lder “lost”. He needs to clean up his own mess first.

I think, anyone too dangerous to own a gun is too dangerous to walk the street. Aside from that, I don’t care if someone has a criminal record, they still have a right to defend themselves.

I think we need to expand the law to reduce fraud on the voter rolls and forget about gun control

I’m not one to watch O’Reilly, Hannity, etc all night, every night. I listen to Boortz in the morning more because he makes me laugh than anything else.

This gun control thing is out of control. If you listen to the Left, then every 2nd Amendment supporter has a Dillon Mini Gun on their roof and their 13 year old in the turret. If you listen to some on the right(IE O’Reilly), so many of them have their facts wrong on laws, weapons, etc etc.

Here’s one for Obama and his increased background checks...the F**King FBI does them. Instead of telling some folks at a rally or making a PSA, go to the director of the FBI and ask him how you can REALLY REALLY REALLY do a background check on a gun purchaser, that isn’t already being done.

Why can’t there, for once, be someone with some common F**king sense on one of these shows that can lay it all out there?

It doesn’t matter. Street gangs use stolen guns. You think they’re going to submit to a background check? Only law abiding citizens who want to protect themselves when the cops cannot or will not have to submit to those checks. They can pass all the restrictive gun laws they can think of but street gangs will always be armed.

One of the best ideas I’ve seen so far is to extradite or send withHolder and O’Bunghole to Mexico to stand trial for 300 murders under Mexico’s justice system.

WTH do the Feds need to know if one is Hispanic/Latino (whatever the heck THAT definition is) when purchasing a gun?

What do they do with that info?

If 0bama were given a background check for a security clearance, I believe he would fail. Methinks dear leader would fail a background check for a weapon also.

I believe it was noted during the ‘08 campaign, by some former Fed agent - now private eye, that obama would not be eligible to receive any type of security clearance. This, if I remember correctly, was b/c of his seemingly non-existent history, travels, addresses, publicly acknowledged associates, etc etc etc.

So what happens, he’s elected President by mindless sheep, gets a Yankee Clearance, can read anyone he pleases in(ie Axelrod) even if they have absolutely no reason to know anything other than results of opinion polls and has slowly taken this country down the path to ruin.

I am pretty sure you are right. I doubt Obama could pas background check.

As for me I don’t have a problem with a background check. I don’t have a criminal record.

I would just like to be able to carry in Maryland.

"As for me I don’t have a problem with a background check. I don’t have a criminal record."

I have no criminal record either (not even a speeding ticket), but thats not the point. The point is that the government has no constitutional and legal right to ask you these questions. You are a sovereign citizen, not a serf who has to answer to the overlords to exercise your God-given rights.

I had a top secret clearance with secret access when I was with Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children in the 70s. They even talked to my friends from High School.

O’Bunghole won’t even provide proof of when or where he was born.

As far as I’m concerned we need to be handing weapons back to people when they get out of prison just like we used to do.

If they’re too dangerous to have a gun, they shouldn’t be released in the first place.

Anyone holding any federal office, including “unvetted czars” should be given the same scrutiny as those considered for access to NATO Secret NOFORN.

Zero would not pass a real background check if he wanted to buy a gun.

Me too. I was PRP qualified. Freaked me out when I was contacted by my high school math teacher about her visit from the FBI. [Freaked her out too]

I believe the 2amd should be taken at its word and the RTBKA dhoulf not br hsmpered. Period. That means everyone has the RTBKA, felons, everyone. Only t the insane under care and incarcerated persons should not be permitted access to arms. The crime for all should be criminal use of arms. It would have no practical effect on felons. They will get and use arms regardless of "legality."

They can't be serious.

The Aurora shooter had no criminal record. What would they have found with an "expanded criminal background check?"

FR has done a pretty good job with the background check. Problem is none of the major media outlets, including talk radio, have paid any real attention to the results.

I agree! What they’re probably looking to do is some sort of psychological screening, forming a national database that can easily be manipulated to identify candidates for “re-education”.

Among the progressive set, “common sense” always equates to a loss of freedom.

BO is slightly off target: the background checks should be for him, moochie, and every stinking gun-control politicain in DC. Bo’s cabinet and all their bodyguards should be stripped of guns and the schumers, piglosis, fishsteins, and all their guards should be stripped of their weapons. Let these tyrants taste their own brand of tyranny.
