Sure, I've heard it. And it makes good sense...as far as it goes. How many of the recent mass killing weapons were obtained at gun shows (etc.) in other states???? The answer is NONE.<quoted text>
As long as there are states where gang -bangers can buy guns and then drive across state lines where it's illegal for them to own those guns it'll happen.
Ever hear the saying "a chain is only as strong as its weakest link"?
And guess what.....If I were a husband and father living in an urban ghetto (as millions and millions do in all of our largest cities) and if I had a cousin (or whatever) visiting from Mississippi who had an extra handgun I would purchase it to be able to defend myself and my family.
We ALL know about the levels of crime in these areas; and we all know these same huge cities do everything they can to make it impossible for these poor people to own guns, while at the same time being unable to provide for their safety. So the way I see it THEY force people to break the law to provide for their own and their family's safety.
I've yet to see verifiable figures from the gov that convince me more guns were obtained at gun shows than those given freely to the criminals by our own government.
How come Obama doesn't shed a little tear once-in-a-while for the kids he's killed with his drones? Too much effort? Two faced sob!
