I agree lala. None of these bannings have ever cut down on crime and never will. The presidents two daughters have armed Secret Service with them at school(so I have read), imagine that. The citizens will fight if the attempt is made to disarm them. There is also many of the military that call themselves oath keepers that took their oath to defend the constitution seriously and will not obey command officers to take away guns from law abiding citizens.

I'm going to put this "Nope's firearm purchase/denial" issue to rest for a few hours..

I'm headed up to the gun shop right now. As I've sat here sipping my coffee, decaf mind you, and been called an outright liar by our most contentious and polite user of all time, I've gotten more perturbed by the comment. I want to know what the hell is going on and why I was sent away. I would assume that they will be able to tell me the exact reason behind it beings as they are the very people who get the "yea or nay" on these sales...

I'll update when I get back home.

I had one very dire thought: I pray that I don't discover through any offered explanation that someone has stolen my ID. If that WERE the case in question, I'm sure an officer have knocked on my door by this time to arrest me if a felony has occurred and there is a warrant or some such nonsense out for my arrest..

If my ID has been compromised, this could turn into a pure nightmare.. And a costly one.

Later, folks. Wish me luck.

Thank you, Lala. I will do just that. I only just saw your comment after I placed mine.

I appreciate your politeness. Seems to be awfully hard for 'some' to show any of that these days.

I'm off to check it out. Hopefully, there was a mistake made on my informational input into the 'system'.... This is beyond absurd.

Listen, Una. I DID ask what the problem was before I left the shop. If you want me to give you a blow by blow of every second I spent in the shop, I'll do my damnedest to oblige. However, that's ridiculous.
I'm telling you that I walked in, looked around, saw one I liked after I looked it over through the glass counter, finally got the attention of one of the workers there, filled out the required paperwork, waited forever for a result, got none, was told that the check line was backed up due to overload,(DUH as if I didn't expect that or a longer than normal wait), was told it could not be granted yesterday, was not given a reason, and the end result is that I walked out empty handed. And I was not told that I had to wait three days for my handgun. I've NEVER been told that I had to wait for three days for any of my gun purchases. NEVER.
I'll also insert that beings as, once again they saw a mere FEMALE walked in to look at the firearms, I was ignored while two people who walked up after I did, MALE customers mind you, were waited on first... That in itself is also something I've grown accustomed to around here. Bias against a woman in a gun shop seems to be the norm.
So yes, you can bet your sweet ass there is something wrong with this picture! And I dare say that had it been YOU this had happened to, you'd be a slight bit pissed off as well. We'd never hear the last of it either for that matter, had it been YOU.
I also dare say that no one would be so ignorant as to call YOU a liar. The rest of us aren't habitually that rude to others on here.
Actually, I could care less what went on in the shop, you brought it up, not I.

Call it rude if you like. You asked if I thought you lied. I gave you an answer, just one you didn't like. Had you rather I lied to you?

You are explaining yourself better as you go. You walked into that shop expecting them to turn flips to wait on you, they didn't. You got PO'd just like you are right now because they didn't kiss your butt. The best thing would have been to have walked out of that shop then and never went back if you didn't like the service. You do the very same thing on this thread. This thread has run smoothly all day until you showed up. You asked, if you don't want to know, don't ask. No Topix rule say's I have to like you, although most of the time I avoid you for that reason.

seriously you're right, but instead of a king, it's more or most-like a dictaitorship. but instead of one king,we have a several,and they live on wall street in a very fine castle. how ironic is that? this country is in debt deeply because we have spent money and lives, fighting dictaitors in other parts of the world whylst our GOV dictaits our every move.

This is the way I see it shaking down.The administration does now want a civil war. There will some bans on assault weapons, tighter control on registration, etc. There will be a compromise initially. Then they will wait....and wait...and wait...... until there is some kind of crisis. There will be another shooting, a natural disaster, something big. Then the President will say I have no choice...and I do think there will be an attempt to confiscate weapons.

When that day comes, I will not fight. I will tell officers who come to take my weapons that I do not chose to relinquish them, based on my second amendment rights. If they insist, I will tell them to arrest me and give me my day in court. If millions of gun owners used this tactic, the jails would be overflowing and the court system clogged. We will win the argument if we follow this strategy.
The people who fight will lose, and be demonized as crazy gun owners. A few might get killed, and then others will just roll over. If there is an uprising, there will be martial law, and under martial law, you must relinquish your weapons if told to. We can win any battle using passive-aggressive behavior.(That means being a pain in the azz, but offering no resistance). Look what happened at Waco, and Ruby Ridge. The government has no qualms to kill potentially "dangerous" people. Just watch and wait. This scenario may take years to unfold, but it will happen if you let it, or give in to active aggression, just to make a bold, but futile statement that you are right.

Wow, we turned political site again. Ugh. I am amazed that "Nope" was refused, not that she was treated like a second class citizen in a gun shop, that she left any paperwork there at all and left the store without demanding to know why her rights were being denied. Not that I want to discuss the political gun scare scenario so rampid right now, I seen an article that made me wonder, as I do not know a lot about the NRA, or am I a member. It was interesting if it is true.

Also, I wonder if people will remember President Reagan putting the ban on assault weapons and NO ONE came to take your guns then. All this debate has done is make the gun stores and makers smile. Maybe, in the end when people buy all the guns they can we will be asked to use them on the terrorist invading our country or something like that. You never know. I think there will be more people with guns than people trying to take them away. It is a way of life in American history. I think panic and paranoia is a bit much. I don't think anyone is going to come get my guns. They are legal handguns, a rifle, and a shotgun left to me, obtained legally, never used in a crime, target shooting only, and in no way shape or form would they be considered "assault weapons".

The Lost History of the NRA

In the 1920s and 1930s, the NRA’s leaders helped write and lobby for the first federal gun control laws—the very kinds of laws that the modern NRA labels as the height of tryanny. The 17th Amendment outlawing alchohol became law in 1920 and was soon followed by the emergence of big city gangsters who outgunned the police by killing rivals with sawed-off shotguns and machine guns—today called automatic weapons.

In the early 1920s, the National Revolver Association—the NRA’s handgun training counterpart—proposed model legislation for states that included requiring a permit to carry a concealed weapon, adding five years to a prison sentence if a gun was used in a crime, and banning non-citizens from buying a handgun. They also proposed that gun dealers turn over sales records to police and created a one-day waiting period between buying a gun and getting it—two provisions that the NRA opposes today.

The NRA's history has been lost, by the way, in much the same way that the history of the Republican party has been lost.

Conservative polemicists often recall that the 19th and early 20th century Democratic party was home to the racists populists of the South.(Here's Jeffrey Lord doing it again today. This is the same Jeffrey Lord, by the way, who once denied that lynching could ever be accomplished by any means other than hanging.)

What is omitted to mention, in this kind of party-centric history of America, is how many Republicans, in those days, espoused a politics of government action in the service of social reform. The early NRA was very much a Republican institution: founded by former Union officers, even. I've made this joke before, and now I'll make it again: if Ambrose Burnside, the most important NRA founder, were alive today to hear NRA members talk about turning guns on the federal government, he'd want to hang them. Literally. As commander of the Department of the Ohio, Burnside arrested newspaper editors and even a member of Congress for speech that he regarded as insufficiently loyal to the Union cause. His famous General Order 38 declared, " It must be understood that treason, expressed or implied, will not be tolerated in this department." Fortunately, President Lincoln over-ruled Burnside on the death sentences bit.

Talk later. It's time for a nap and a few more chores until I can return. It seems a strange thing to me to feel that I really know you folks. I have a mental image of all of you, just through the portrait you paint with your words. I do know what Abeliever and Ohio Jeep Girl look like from the pictures sent through private e-mail. And my imagination was right on target for both of them. Wonder what Sybil and Una look lie?...Nah, not so much LOL, as in the closing words of our long-lost Hempburn. Any of you heard from him, by the way. I'm getting a little worried because he started the day with his Hempburn Reportl
