My opinion is that Kentucky has the best gun laws in the country. Not only that, but the federal government now has no ability to enforce any of their new fun laws in this state. I love being a Kentuckian.

Murder is against the law in all 50 states. If you committ murder, it is punishable by life inprisionment or the death penality depending on the state you live in. So, which one of the gun laws is going to be stronger than that? None. Gun laws are not about protecting us. Gun laws are wanted by liberals because they would feel safer and since they do not wish to own a firearm, no one should have them. Facts get in the way.

So do you guys think that anybody should be able to get any kind of gun under any circumstance whatsoever? Convicted felons and illegal immigrants should be able to buy fully automatic weapons from each other with no oversight or tracking required?

No, I do not. And, there are laws already on the books making those purchases illegal already. Enforce the laws we have. A very small percent of people that break those laws are ever convicted. And yes, if I want a fully automatic gun, I should be able to purchase one, just because I can.

Should you be able to buy a car that goes over 100 miles an hour? The speed limit is 75 or less. But in the hands of a responsible citizen, no one even gives it a thought. People are killed by cars everyday. Some through accidents and some by people who chose to use them in a way that can kill or injure. JUST LIKE A GUN. There is not a constituional law allowing for a right to own cars. Using liberal logic. We must get rid of spoons, knives, and forks. These deadly instruments are being used by millions of Americans to kill them selves by eating themselves into obesity, heart disease, cancer, and diabieies. We must register all forks, kives and spoons and get these instruments of death regulated and banned!

How are you going to prevent a felon from getting a gun if you don't conduct background checks at gun shows or on straw purchase private transactions? How do you enforce the laws other than just telling the felons that they aren't allowed to have a gun? You think a felon meth head cares if those laws are on the books already? Doesn't it make sense to close those loopholes so that meth heads don't get guns as soon as they get out? And, since an illegal immigrant doesn't have second amendment rights, why should they be able to obtain and own a firearm like us? How are you going to make sure they don't if you don't conduct a check?

Now that we have a Religious Freedom Act, can you now say it's against your religion to have a background check done? Can I refuse to sell you a gun based on my religious beliefs?
oops, wrong forum.

No need to go overboard with the hyperbole, because no one is proposing to take away guns. You have to be licensed to buy a car, you have to register that car, and if you do something illegal with that car, you lose that license. Any person you transfer that car to also has to license and register the car and can't have done anything stupid if they want it. Why are guns different? Should my 12 year old be able to go buy a car and take off driving this afternoon? Should she be able to go buy a gun at a flea market this afternoon? She is an American...does the 2nd amendment give her the right to carry?

Read the 2A. That says it all. If you believe in gun control in any way, you do not understand the Bill of Rights.

Really, the second amendment says my 12 year old daughter can buy a handgun at a pawn shop, no questions asked? Is that what the "militia" part means? No, the Heller decision is the only thing that matters at this point, and Scalia specifically said that, as a personal right, the second amendment comes with government limits on the types of weapons a person can own and the conditions under which they can be owned. That part of the debate is over. Now it is a matter of defining what are appropriate personal weapons and ownership conditions. The only people still saying your right is unlimited are the gun manufacturers and the three f*ck stains (Rand, Cruz, Lee) they paid to tell you that.

I have a license to carry and a background check to go with it at all times in my wallet. I never said I am against a background check. I complied with it without being forced to do so. I just get tired of being told about how this will make us safer. The criminal who will not get a background check or follow any other law. One who is willing to come to your house and rob from you and maybe even kill you will never submit to the gun laws that are being proposed. The only person who will do is is the people who obey the law already and have no intention of harming you or your family. Drugs are illegal. How much compliance do we have with that?

Exactly! No one law abiding should have any problem getting a background check or making sure we don't give our guns to criminals. So why is Rand screaming about a Senate bill that requires that? Could it be that he's paid to put more guns on the street, legal or otherwise, regardless of the consequences? So my response to his allowing meth heads to have guns is supposed to be to now go out and buy more and bigger guns than the meth heads have? No thanks...I'm not paying to be in an arms race with people who shouldn't have a gun to begin with. Do pill heads get Oxy illegally? Yes. But who the Hell ever said that making Oxy over the counter was a solution to that problem? Nobody ever. Where's the common sense?

Oh, so you are so pompous to think that your low brow spew relative to the second amendment is above the level of discussion of other? I don't engage in debate with others that have closed minds. I learned 70 years ago that, everyone has an opinion, and opinions are like as$holes, and some are much larger than others. Out.

another progressive that thinks all criminals go to gun shows to arm themselves. you do understand that criminals will obtain any firearm they want,regardless of what law you pass.(hell go south of the border and eric holder may hand you one).
second,will you get off your damn gun lobby bs. gun manufactures sell guns because we,the american people buy them.
you do realize that a bushmaster is simply a rifle that has a menacing look to it.

im sorry,but have you read some of the direct qoutes from some of your progressive friends in washington? furthermore, cities in america with the strictest gun laws have the highest murder rates.......so whats your point? if it doesnt reduce violent crime what are you accomplishing? i will answer that lol, you are denying the average citizen the right to arm himself.
