Nope, because unlike guns, the primary purpose of a box cutter isn't to kill.
More people are wounded than killed with a gun. Wouldn't that be the primary purpose?

So the gun restrictions obviously do work in some cases, otherwise the headline would have read 14 shot to death at Texas college, instead of 14 injured.
Texas doesnt have the gun Restrictions like Illinois.

Nope, it's just more proof why most of these morons shouldn't have guns.

So anyone can buy any gun anywhere at any time in Texas without background checks or showing ID or any other limits?

Having lived for years in both states, I'd say I have a better idea than you.

Illinois is not an anti-gun state; Chicago is definitetly an anti-gun city, but the whole state? No.

So EVERY TIME anyone buys a gun anywhere any time in Texas they go through a background check and have to show ID?

You ought to check Texas law at least once and get some help with someone who graduated from high school.

I see no valid reason to make people without a criminal record submit to a background check, and criminals are not supposed to have guns. There s a nationwide criminal record system. Use it to verify a record, and leave the law abiding Americans alone. In Illinois, in the last 5 years less then 1 tebth of 1% of those who violated the background check were prosecuted by the Attorney Generals office.

I have resided in both states too and you couldn't of or you would see & know there is a big difference between Texas & Illinois gun laws and yes the whole state of Illinois is anti-gun and restrictive statewide and especially with CCW's.

Illinois does not issue licenses for the concealed carry of firearms, nor does it recognize licenses issued by other states. Illinois is the only state that does not allow concealed carry in some form. Open carry is also prohibited in most areas. When a firearm is being transported, it must be unloaded and enclosed in a case. On December 11, 2012, these blanket restrictions were struck down as unconstitutional by a federal appeals court panel, which gave the state 180 days to change its laws. On February 22, 2013, a request by the Illinois attorney general for a rehearing by the full appeals court was denied.

To legally possess firearms or ammunition, Illinois residents must have a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card, issued by the state police. Non-residents who may legally possess firearms in their home state are exempt from this requirement. There is a waiting period to take possession after purchasing a firearm 72 hours for a handgun, or 24 hours for a rifle or shotgun. Private sales are allowed, and are subject to these same requirements. Possession of automatic firearms, short-barreled shotguns, or silencers is prohibited. Possession of short-barreled rifles is permitted only for those who have ATF Curios and Relics licenses or are members of a military reenactment group.

Illinois does not have state preemption for gun laws, and some local governments have enacted ordinances that are more restrictive than those of the state

There's no way of knowing a person doesn't have a criminal record unless you do a background check. That's kinda the whole point of doing a background check- to stop those who DO have a criminal record from buying a gun.

I'd suggest you address the failure to prosecute with the AGs offfice. Those are to separate issues.

There is a national data base that will identify a criminal almost immediately. You put in the name, and if they have no recors that should be the end of the check. Obama wants much more information then he has a right to.
