@ LDS Lib- Background checks?Guys like this don't get their
guns like you and I do. Crooks steal them (often from cop cars) or trade drugs
for them, or get someone with a clean record ("straw purchaser") to get
one. Or, they just get a fake ID and get past the background check anyway.
Fake IDs are absurdly easy to get in a matter of hours.Background
checks are about as useless as demanding that heroin buyers get Doctors'
prescriptions before buying illegal drugs.Decades of experience
prove that the feds do NOT prosecute people who fail the background checks- More
than 2,000 failed in Utah last year, but the feds prosecuted less than FIVE!
The only real purpose of background checks is de facto registration of guns and
gun owners. That never helps solve crimes (ask the Canadians how that 2 billion
dollar long gun registry worked-- they canceled it). Registration is needed for
only one thing- eventual confiscation.
The other newspaper is reporting an immigration hold on him as well.All
the more reason to have enforced immigration laws when he was released from
prison before.When will we learn?
Tell me, How did he get a gun?Background checks anyone?c'mon - it only makes sense....
Please tell me that this animal will never get out of prison again. Why wait
until he actually kills somebody? He has proven to be a danger to the rest of us
time and again. Keep him in prison until he is deceased.
