Posted on 11/01/2012 4:32:20 AM PDT by rellimpank
Lawmakers should craft legislation to close a loophole in guns laws through which unlicensed sellers can peddle weapons to buyers without background checks.
Had such a law been in place, it might have kept kept a gun out of the hands of Radcliffe Haughton and saved the lives of three women at the Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield.
Yes, it seems apparent now that Haughton was bent on killing his estranged wife. And he may well have found another way to get a gun. But that doesn't mean that such legislation would not keep guns out of the hands of others who buy them every year without undergoing a background check.
The proposal was resurrected by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and is supported by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, an advocacy group based in Washington, D.C.
About 40% of all legal gun sales in the nation require no background check, which is an open floodgate through which thousands of weapons flow to criminals, people with mental illness and domestic abusers. Radcliffe was subject of a restraining order and had been ordered to turn over his guns to authorities days before his shooting rampage. Radcliffe's wife, Zina, was granted a four-year restraining order against her husband because she said she feared for her life. She died along with two others; four were hurt in the mass shooting on Oct. 21.

Macbeth was a pain to read, but I’m sure the Bard would have approved of the 2nd Amendment, given the amount of righteous violence in his plays.
This will be a good thread.
It’s not a loophole, nitwits.
—my apologies to all the Shakespeare fans—already asked the moderator to fix it-—
Banning private individuals from selling their goods is unconstitutional.
But that has never stopped the Left from coming out with idiotic proposals like this one.
There is nothing that needs to be fixed and people who want to kill someone - they sure as heck aren’t going to allow another gun control law to stand in their way.
Disarming people doesn’t save lives.
Maybe should have been barf?
Frankly, I like singing minstrels. Especially in the frozen land of Nador, where they come in handy...
Milwaukee Mayor Barrett resurrects proposal to close “loophole” in gun law
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Statist goons hate private gun sales like the devil hates Holy Water.
First, it is a mistake not discovered until later inspection and properly "closing" it really demands you unravel the thing and re-do that loop.
If there is a political "loophole" it is because someone deems something was inproperly done before, even after inspection.
Using the word "loophole" is a devious thought pattern.
The Brady bunch is nothing more than an anti Civil Rights hate group. Anyone associating with them might at well associate with Nazi’s or the KKK.
No, keep the Bard Alert, the responses are bound to be both entertaining and educational. It could be Hugh and Series!!!
I can’t believe you’d say something like that. I’m stuned!
Agreed and Republicans are as bad as the rest in using the term.
Substitute ‘remaining freedom they haven’t stamped out’ and the picture changes quickly.
