Sue the Washington Post for slander/libel. Pieces of filth. It is unfortunate that New York is trying to blame others for their problems. Michael Bloomberg is a piece of filth also. Apparently, you can make accusations with no consequences. So screw New York, liberal media and Bloomberg. Your actions have cost the lives of New York state citizens. Don't place blame here in VA.

You are far too polite. The newspaper was referred to as The Communist Post back in the 80s because 5 out of 7 days a week the lead article was about Communism.

As for Bloomers, even calling him a turd is a complement. He is a lying scum bag politician that should be prosecuted for authorizing his agents to attempt to make straw purchases.

Most of my guns come from there! They do all of the paperwork required by the government, and background checks are run. There is nothing else that a gun dealer can do, and nothing else that they should do.

60% from Bob Motes AND 39 OTHER GUN STORES.

Hmmm, just sounds to me like Bob's sells alot of guns and some (a percentage) fall into the hands of criminals. A trace of a gun does NOT mean there was a crime. Any gun store that has been in business for a while will end up having a number of traces done each year for guns that were sold, at times, many years before. THis is not an issue for the store. This is an issue for the Washington comPost twisting the data.

Just so all of the crazies know and you guys that agree with me on alot of issues. I put a gun in the trading post last year. I sold a rather large caliber revolver that I was tired of b/c of the cost of ammo.(not something you want to carry for protection or shoot for fun) You would not believe the number of calls that i recieved from New Jersey and New York. I even ignored one guy from Jersey and he kept calling. When I finally answered, he asked to buy it and I told him it was sold b/c I knew his little game. He was trying to take the gun up north and sell it, obviously.

So i wouldn't do it. After he told me that he wanted the gun, then He proceeded to ask me what kind of gun it was. LOL he didn't care, he just wanted it to sell on the streets. I then told him that I was sorry that I had a buyer on the way. I ran his area code the first time he called and determined it was Jersey.

Now this brings me to my point. I have bought from Bob's for years. they are 100% legit period. And the liberals are concerned about Bob's when there are guns for sale in the paper???? Seems absolutely ridiculous to me.

Like Real Change,I had a similar experience.I had an old military carbine I had bought years ago and no longer had any use for.It wasn't an assault rifle or anything,but as a military weapon it was obviously a dangerous thing if it got into the wrong hands.
To make a long story short,I called the Virginia State Police,Chesterfield and Henrico police to ask if there was any way I could run a background check on a potential buyer.The short answer..no.
I eventually did sell it,doing the best I could to check the guy out using the Virginia Courts website,and hoped for the best.
Also,my guess is that most criminals don't go to any gun store and pay retail price for their guns.They're usually stolen in break-in's.

Dare I say that those 40 dealers likely sell more than 60% of he total guns sold in the state?

Numbers can be made to say anything, especially out of context.

Bloomberg and others of his ilk should be more concerned with THEIR criminals - rather than our guns.

not true; most of those guns are purchased from trunk sales at all major gun shows. many are straw purchases, got stats. to prove it.

As usual, you "got" nothing nothead.

You have lied about this for quite some time now and claimed to have proof, yet you never show it.

Just more of your lies rolled into a spew!

You can do a background check. Just go to any dealer and have them to the FFL transfer. Much safer that way.
