Our local gun store even said that if I came in with my husband, who has a CCP (which, if you have a concealed carry permit, you don't need a new separate permit for new gun purchases), and he bought a gun and turned to me - in the store - handed me the gun and said, "Happy birthday, honey!", the store would have to cancel the sale. They are not allowed to let that happen. There's nothing they can do if he waits until we get in the car to give it to me, but they could be put out of business if they knowingly allowed someone to buy a gun for another person who doesn't have a permit.
What the dorks can't seem to understand is that criminals NEVER get a gun the legal way. Law-abiding, regular citizens are the ones who get prevented from being able to defend themselves, their families and homes. Now, it looks like people who take certain medications either currently or in the past are being denied the right to own a gun. If I were that guy, I would NOT have turned in my guns! Allowing the state to have that kind of power over the citizen is tantamount to tyranny! One day it's possible mental issues due to medication and the next day it's religious beliefs. It won't be long before NOBODY (legal, that is) will be allowed to have a gun. Is that what we really want?
To be fair (why?!!??) to criminals, I can’t think of a bank robber, or home invader are known to have done mass shootings of innocent people. The shooter in colorado was a university student. Columbine shooter was a high school student. Virginia Tech was another student. The most recent mass shooting at Sandy Hook was a 20 year old with mental problem. The person who shot the congresswoman did not have a criminal record using guns. Even the Jihadist Muslim who shot soldiers in a military base was not a bank robber type criminal.
It is obvious mental problem is what causes mass murders with guns. It will be impossible to weed out every mental candidate in country by background checks.
The only solution which will work is more people with CCP’s and trained guards/teachers at schools.
You need to understand that gun laws are not about and have never been about “keeping guns away from criminals”.
The career politicians and big Govt. types (in other words, our Government) wants to disarm YOU.
The gun grabber laws are about making the Government safer, not you. Not me. Not children.
The real reason is because they know they can’t get away with what they have in mind if we are armed.
It has nothing to do with safety, criminals, children, hunting, or any of the other distractions that people keep falling for.
