Not requiring background checks makes this easier.
Imagine taxpayers paying the rent on buildings where guns are routinely sold to felons without a requirement of checking the background - a process that usually takes but (literally) a few minutes.
Those buildings are in Chicago, they also sell drugs and prostitutes. Yet I don't think background checks will deter them.

Why can't you grasp the fact that if you don't know who you are selling your guns to, you should be held responsible should the sale be illegal?
Ask Holder and Obama, I'm sure they got ID's and background checks from the drug lords.

Responsible people like cops and such are constantly monitored for psychosis. 1 in 4 in this county is mentally ill. 1 in 10 will need to be in a mental hospital at some point in their life. You want these people to have with ssupervision. Hek they could be as crazy and racist as you. What if they belong to the KKK or White Aryan Nation and go nuts. How could we tell? Of course, I would say they are nuts like you and deny them guns based on their illness and their cray beliefs.
Yep, they could even be in da Crips or da Bloods and pedal murder, drugs and prostitution. Thats about as mentally ill as you can get.

Which is why I also know I don't want every dumb azz running around with a gun playing Dirty Harry or BlackOps.
I have more faith in my fellow citizens. There are bad people in society, but there are more good. A majority of the US has ccw laws, and very few incidents. The problems are with criminals, not the average citizen.

I too served, 21 years, thru the good and the bad. Seen the best and worst of humanity, often within moments of each other.

I DON'T trust the teachers; that's the whole point. Too many are sex offenders or abusive to their students. Haven't you been watching the news?

Armed guards didn't stop them from targeting Columbine.

The day they let teachers carry guns in my local school is the day I start homeschooling my daughter.

Well at least the kids biggest worry wouldn't be being sent to the principle anymore.

I bet there are people in Indiana that have gone to school before, and been armed. No need to pull out the gun unless it is needed.
Everyone was armed in my school,that's how we carried our books. The only time I emptied my gun at school was at the urinal. If there were people carrying firearms in our school,they did it discreetly and were obviously careless in their regard for the law. That means people that carry firearms onto forbidden properties are reckless firearm owners. Period.

Guns have become a status for some people. Women have jewelry,some men are so scared of every shadow they feel compelled to carry everywhere. That's not freedom. That's walking around being a gutless coward and a slave to fear.

I am an average citizen, and hardly a criminal. Your definition of the average citizen must be far different from mine. Would you elaborate your definition?

All we ever hear from the wingers is how union people are dumb,lazy,thugs,selfish,worthl ess and just generally bad news. Especially the teachers union.

But when it comes to guns.....These very same wingers are enthusiastic for these public/union employees they consider to be lazy,thugs,etc to carry guns.

It's absolutely amazing.

To be a winger....is to be a walking mass of conflicting emotions and contradictions.

The Winger:

I hate public schools and do not want one more dollar of my tax money spent on them.

Unions are for the lazy,the inept and the corrupt.

Union people are thugs.

Teachers of today are godless liberals.

I want those very same unionized godless liberals to carry guns in public schools.

I am considered right wing to many, I have no beef with unions. I also support an armed citizenry. I could care less whether someone is union, as long as they are doing thier job with pride and quality. If a teacher wants the responsibility of being armed, by all means train them. You trust these teachers with your children, why not allow them to be a deferential to those who would do children harm?

you do make two good points and you are right about Columbine, but I do know people who home school their kids just for the reasons you posted and is how they feel which is their choice.

I don't think kids have to worry about that since the Teachers under state law that are trained are actually County Deputies if anything they would be allowed to place the kids under arrest since they are considered county deputies while on school property.

Most people with a brain in their head understand why laws are needed to require background checks.

People like you and others without conscience clearly would sell them firearms.

Certainly: that's the way it has been for the last fifty years.
