Cite one comment from any NRA representative that states the NRA is against prosecuting criminals guilty of committing a violent CRIME with a gun. Ask any gun owner if they are against prosecuting gun violence criminals.

Again, just making crap up to strengthen your weak argument isn't good enough.

The fact is FAR more gun deaths, homicides, murders in the U.S. occur by so-called 'law abiding' folks pulling the trigger than by the 'criminal' element you want to blame. You're far more likely to be the victim of homicide by someone other than a criminal, i.e. friend, acquaintance, family member etc., particularly if there is a firearm in the home. Check it out, dare you. But here's a hint. You won't find any of these FACTS in your right wing gun nut or NRA sewer pipe propaganda you're so fond of.

Here is a couple things. If a person living in a rural area 30 miles from town wants to give or sell a gun to a family member he/she will be required to: Drive 60 miles to and from town. Pay a gun dealer to do the gun deal that he has nothing to do with. Go to the police station for the purposes of background check. The farmer could also be required to keep that transaction paperwork on file or face felony charges and jail time. Seems quite a bit much just to give your kid a gun. When only a very very very small amount of these guns ever get into any crimes.
Despite what anyone says, a listing is being kept of those gun owners. Wether it is the government or the gun dealer that is required by law for record keeping. The government only needs to audit him to get a list if they don't have it themselves. A list is a big concern for reasons of publishing and privacy as already seen. Also confiscation reasons as we have saw in the past. I believe those are some of the biggest concerns not to mention the 20,000 laws on the books restricting the law abiding citizen. A lot are just tired of adding laws that do nothing to the criminal and only hassle them. Some of these laws are making law abiding citizens into criminals by slightly crossing legal document or legal procedures. There is no need for more than 20,000 laws. Not to mention what is not being unforced anyway.

I would be in favor of very strict penalties such as life behind Bars or death sentance if all doubt was removed and it was fact that the crime consisted of shooting and wounding or killing a innocent victim. There are way to many variables to what you said to agree. It was very very unspecific all do respect. If you meant it the way I think you did I agree totally. It just can't be said so openly because people would butcher what you said.

Why could'nt it be done directly with local law enforcement...over the phone or internet? Instead of driving there?.....As far as any records on gun ownership, would'nt they already have been gathered, regardless of what new laws might be introduced?

C even I was not clear enough while trying to be very clear. In the process of a serious crime the criminal also beside the serious crime it's self, shoots wounds or kills a innocent victim with the intent of doing so.

You have not went through the seriousness of a real background check. There are no two ways about it, you can not do it any other way but face to face with the proper authorities.

No that paperwork would not be kept on file without new laws.

You might want to look in the mirror when you talk about dumb SOBs so you can see for yourself what one actually looks like. Hello, dumbazz...if you commit a crime, whether you use a weapon or not, you aren't a law abiding citizen, now are you?

It doesn't sound unreasonable to me. BUT, we already have background check's, and waiting periods in place.
I have no problem with that. If I want to go buy a gun (which I am thinking about doing) I don't have any problem with the background check, or waiting period.
I just don't think any more laws and restrictions are going to keep guns out of the hands of those that use them to commit crimes.
Just this morning, some kid robbed a gas station near where I work, he had a gun,....I doubt he bought it legally, and went through a background check.s
Like I've said,....I'm not against back ground checks.
I just don't see how more laws are going to keep those Saturday night specials out of the wrong hands.
Shuck's,..you can go to Mexico and buy a truckload of guns that Obama left down there with his Fast and Furious campaign for $100
no back ground check required!

You seem to have a lot of personal experience with that sort of thing. You might want to stop self-medicating and seek professional help at your local health department...it could be a sign you're infected with one or more STDs.
