    I posted an advert on Armslist for the last firearm I own. These are tough times for me, I am unemployed and had no reserve fund. Thankfully, I just consummated the sale so now I can rest easy financially. I got a message: "I live in TN but work on GA. .....Would you be willing to sell it to me? Also, can you take pictures and send them to me? Thanks." Well THAT would break the law! My response: "I'm afraid not. .....but the law in Georgia (and perhaps federally) is that in order to sell a firearm in a...

    In 1968 Congress passed the infamous Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968. The act banned the sale of guns through the mail except to federally licensed dealers. One purpose of the act was to weaken and defund the National Rifle Association. A great deal of advertisement funding for the NRA magazine, The American Rifleman, came from ads for the mail order of firearms.The mail order of pistols had been regulated since 1927. GCA 1968 banned mail order of rifles and shotguns, guns that were used in only a small percentage of crimes, and created a whole new class of...

There are many stories of mishaps that we don't normally hear about, but the folks from these forums (AR15, 1911forum) threads had this to say: TexHeim: "I've had a dealer forget to have me fill out the 4473, but they had pissed me off so badly I didn’t remind them of that step."

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) is expected to release a draft rule dealing with stolen firearms. The rule is under review by the White House, which has 90 days before it is required to release it to the public for comment. No one knows what the rule will do or what purpose it would serve, other than to make already burdened gun dealers subject to more bureaucratic snares and tripwires. Since this process started in 1992 in the Clinton era, the number of gun dealers has plunged from 248,000 in 1993 to a bit less...

    ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A federal search warrant affidavit outlines the massive raid that seized nearly 1,500 firearms from the home and business of an Albuquerque man and why the feds were after him. Last week rifles lined the lawn of a northeast Albuquerque home that belonged to Robert Adams. Homeland Security Investigations was also busy loading hundreds of handguns into boxes. It took federal agents days to log every weapon seized into evidence. Four search warrants filed Thursday show the HSI investigators seized nearly 900 firearms from Adams' home. There were 548 handguns and 317 rifles listed in the warrant...

    SPRING HILL -- County Commissioner Jim Adkins said he is a strong supporter of a person's right to keep and bear arms. But there is a limit, he said. And that limit may be reached when it comes to someone extending that constitutional right to selling firearms out of his home. "I'm a very strong Second Amendment person," Adkins said. "I just don't think residential areas are good for that type of business." But, he added, "I can be convinced either way" and awaits more information on Tuesday. That's when a contingent of neighbors who live in a quiet cul-de-sac...

Zoning rules and a small gun market have left the city without a licensed federal arms dealers since April, making it impossible for District residents to legally buy guns. Earlier this week, D.C. Councilman Phil Mendelson chose not to introduce a bill he wrote that would have created a city agency to play the role of gun dealer, because Mendelson said the Gray administration was close to finding a solution for the...

    The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the far left anti-gun group under investigation for voter fraud, could be eligible to receive millions, if not billions of dollars from the economic bailout bill that passed out of the House of Representatives. ACORN was an aggressive supporter of Barack Obama -- who had served as the group's legal counsel and even trained ACORN in "community organizing" -- in the presidential election. The Obama campaign even paid the group $800,000 for "voter turnout," the very activities that came under scrutiny by the FBI. In October 2008, ACORN's Las Vegas office...

But until a gun store opens in the city, anyone who wants to buy a gun is going to have a tough time. Since there are no gun stores in the District of Columbia, residents wishing to own a gun...

Also, given the ATFs recent crack down on FFLs, I wonder when the VPCs last inspection was? And how many transfers theyve done. If none, then that could mean theyre not a business and, per ATF, that is bad. If they have, theyre hypocrites. Said FFL exempts them from the DC handgun ban, as well.

There's no doubt, however, where his wife comes down on the hotbutton issue of abortion.
