Today the Senate ruled threw out the Assault Weapons Ban included in Diane Feinstein's gun control bill, a major victory for the American people. Other measures still remain, such as proposed universal background checks and restrictions on magazine size, but those will be struck down in good time. This, coupled with the defeat of other radical policies like the obsurd soda bans in New York, for instance, are the first is what I hope is a long line of victories over this administration's deplorable treason against the Constitution and the American way of life. I, for one, find reason to celebrate in this.

What is wrong with background checks? I thought the idea was to keep guns away from criminals?

This fight is FAR from over. If you listened carefully to Senator Reid, he said there will be room for an amendment when the rest of the legislation passes. This is a back door way to easily add Fienstien's assault weapons ban.

I am personaly cofident that the rest of he legislation will be defeated as well. Too many in the Senate, even a lot of Dems, are starting to see that the bill is completely unconstitutional. The ban was taken out as a precaution to avoid a total failure of the legislation because less than half of the senators would have voted for it. The legislation as a whole has little more chance of passing even without the ban, since support for it is still weakening.

Im for the background check how it is now. I recently purchased another ar15. Walked in did the paperwork, paid, walked out with it. But those in DC want to rewrite the background check. Someone who has been on a mood alternating drug, ie xanax, zoloft etc, at anytime in their life would be denied the right to purchase a firearm. Soldiers who are diagnosed with with PTSD would also be denied.
Some other clauses and "suggestions" in the bill include a mandatory psych evaluation on all prospective buyers, a limit on how much ammo you can buy in a certain time span, and there's even been talk of making it mandatory to get a background check to buy ammunition. I'm all for having background checks for gun purchases to keep them from the hands of criminals, but treating law-abiding people like criminals solves nothing.

My nephew who I love very much but am troubled by went to Springfield a few weeks ago to the fairground and bought a S&W 3913 9MM and 3 extra magazines from some guy he said was a" private dealer". He is ok now but he spent 5 years in a federal prison for making Meth some years ago. I don't know how he passed a check, when I asked him he said he did not have to have one. He said when he got out he had to get rid of his guns because he could not own any. I think something is wrong, if he can buy one any criminal can.

Good! Soldiers who have flipped out should be denied the right to carry a gun. Do you realize how many of these massacres have been by former soldiers? Just because a person is former military doesn't mean they are lucid.

You are so gullible. Why would he buy a gun if he knows he can't own one? Some one isn't telling the truth.

A private sell, me to you, no background check needed. You criminal get caught go to jail. That simple.
My brother said there were about a hundred other guns for sale, some new and in the box. I don't think he should have been able to sell to just anyone. He also said it was a show and lots of dealers were there selling and he did not think they had to do background checks on anyone.

I don't think my nephew will do anything crazy
with the gun if he stays away from drugs but who know for sure. What bothers me are the other guys that are not ok and can buy a firearm just as easy. Some of his old friends don't care if they can legally own a gun or not and if they know about places like this I am sure they will buy there.

I believe the words you're looking for are "gun show", and yes, they are not required to do background checks at gun shows because they are all private citizens selling their own guns. First off, your brother is a convicted felon and legally should not be in possession of a firearm and is therefore elligable for arrest right now. He bought his gun illegally, just like every other criminal in this country does. If it had been an actual dealer, a background check would have been required. It's people like that that are the very reason that the rest of us need our LEGALLY PURCHASED guns. Criminal scum have always found a way to get their guns and get away with it. That is no reason to treat the rest of us like the criminals and leave us defenseless.
PS - There is no such thing as a former methhead. I would advise you to do the right thing for all involved and report this guy immediately. If a druggie buys a gun, it's always for an illicit purpose. He knows he shouldn't have it and yet he got it anyway. That's an admission of guilt.

It is my nephew, my brother's son yes there is no such thing as a former Meth addict. I did not think this sounded like a private citizen selling his guns. He had several new guns still in boxes. I agree he knows that having a gun is not legal but I guess that is not as important to him. Any way he is well armed now and I am not sure why it was legal.

You do know that more people are shot and more people are killed with hand guns than with"assault rifles" right?
But gun nuts who attack children in school situations in a great majority of cases choose an assult type weapon.

Maybe so in mass shootings. Gabby givens shot with a glock. Aurora Co, bushmaster ar15, and tactical shotgun. The recent Herkimer NY, 4 killed by shotgun. 99% of shootings in say pick a city, semi auto pistol. Banning ar15 style weapons is not the answer.
And anyway get back on topic. We've been thru this discussion.
And yeah i own a couple of ar's. Not a right wing gun nut either. Just like guns!
I have always owned guns and hopefully always will but it's not us responsibile gun owners who need controls it's the gun nuts. With that said, I will agree with gun controls to save innocent children's lives.
yup

To the point of giving up my right to save one childs life. I realize some feel childrens lives mean little to some but not me.

Let me ask you a fair question, If you knew that your right to own a weapon would save your childs life would you reconsider that right?
