Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, don't appear to be listening - and those just the states I've read about today... the jury is still out on what the Fed will try!

Well, to New Mexico's limited credit, the bill that passed the house is a very watered down version of the original. The new version states that all firearms purchases at gun shows must have a background check.

The original version was such that it required background checks on all sales from private party to private party, including relatives.

While I'm against this bill on principal, it really is watered down and essentially treats all those selling guns at gun shows equally.

They heard us loud and clear on the original versions, but they seem to have gone deaf on the final. We may have to help their hearing come election time.

I do hope you do hold them accountable next election.
Everyone at a gun show are not equal - some are FFLs, and some are not.

A non-FFL should not have to jump through hoops just because the guy behind him says, "Hey, that's a nice rifle. What will you take for it?"
