I applaud them too. But I note that none of our Congressional "representatives" are included in the list.

Members of Congress who stand up to the bullying of the NRA need to be supported. Those who don't need to be removed.

I applaud them as well, but background checks alone are not enough. We need trafficing laws and limits on the kinds of weapons and magazines that can be put in general circulation.


The costs to implement background checks aren't worth the (possible) benefit.

I don't really think criminals will deal with them.

Background checks do nothing except penalize the law-abiding.

When this new set of laws, doesn't fix the problem
then the guns that remain will suddenly become
the new assault weapons and those will be gone

If we are to have bi-partisan agreement, let us agree
to let law abiding people alone, and go after
criminals. Let us agree on no more gun laws
until we enforce the ones we already have.

I suppose 1Con got his guns at a show so that he could stay off the database they will use to come after guns. Next he will demand that the law abiding not have to register their cars for the same reason. Cjb goes one further and says the list will be use to come after all guns are relabeled assault weapons. What channel are these folks watching? Don't anyone remind them the government fluoridates their water against their will.

Why have laws? Criminals will just disregard them.
