No, there are laws in place today preventing that! You have what you want. It's against the law. How well is that government regulation working?

Enforce the laws in place first! More laws are not going to solve anything. If the laws are not enforced, the only people affected are the law abiding!!!!!!

You think THAT is contrary to the second amendment???

You guys are so far out there on your own planet...
Wake up! There are already laws in place to do that. They are not enforced.
The recent CO movie theater shooting is a perfect example. The shooter had seen psychiatrists. The University psychiatrist had notified authorities that the guy was a threat!!! He purchased firearms, ammo, and has canisters after the fact. He went to a movie theater were the law abiding were restricted from carrying a firearm. They were sitting ducks.
What law do you want enacted that would prevent such atrocities?

<quoted text>And it is an infringement on the second. Having to wait a period of time is denying that right for that time period. So if obama was any champion of gun rights he would have called for the repeal of the brady bill. Instead he issues orders for the atf to harass gun dealers. He stopped the sale of surplus ammo and components. His admin bought billions of rounds of ammo, driving up the cost and causing shortages. His admin participates in the un treaty on small arms.

I notice you don't get any replies from the liberal,socialist, left on that.

I wonder why that is?

I have seen the lunatic left pull that repeatedly. They think if they ignore facts they will go away.
Or if they repeat a lie long enough, it will eventually be seen as the truth.

So why not a waiting period before someone can go buy a baseball bat for their kid, for a mechanic to go buy tools, or for a lumberjack to go buy a new chainsaw????

Compare the income of those elitist liberals to Mitt Romney. For that matter, compare them to the average income in the US.
Obama got reelected based on jealousy of the rich! Is America blind or what?
I won't call it jealousy. It's more like pissed off that the Repubs told Americans 30 years ago if you just give the breaks to the rich you'll get Trickled Down on. Well 80% of America got Trickled Down on. More like pissed on. In those 30 years since it has been the goal of the Repubs to give to the Top, the Top has gained 387% income. The middle class has gained 18%. The Top 20% receive 80% of ALL the income each year. The Top have closed 27,000 American factories to open them in places where they pay workers less than $1.00/hour. The Richest 400 people in America have more wealth than the first 150 million Americas. Most of the very Top now pay a 15% income tax rate.
.
The left isn't jealous, just mad about being lied too.

I would really like to see your source for the statistics you used.

How hard is it to see that the rich provide the jobs, either directly or indirectly. How hard is it to see that Republicans are not the only rich people? You act like Democrats are all poor and Republicans are all rich.

Are there vehicle purchasing "waiting period" laws for people who have been arrested for DUI/DWI?

Maybe we could extend that to anyone who's been arrested for two or more serious traffic violations like reckless driving and driving under suspension?

Take it a step further and include people who've been treated for medical issues related to alcohol abuse.

Heck, look at the potential government programs and billions in fines and fees!

Where were YOUR clothes and shoes made? Let me guess...you only buy American made, right?

Right...and all because "The Top" wants to screw Americans. Funny how all those rich people and corporations just popped up out of nowhere when Reagan was elected. Guy must have been a magician.

BTW, your last "15%" claim is an outright lie.
