<quoted text> Yes and you are saying the articles are lying including a quote by the spokesperson for the ATF. The truth is background checks don't cover people who will commit a crime, only those who have.
Comprehensive, universal background checks is gun registration and unconstitutional and unenforceable. We already have comprehensive background checks. But who says that what 90% want you?
The same person who denies that the ATF said Ferguson passed the background check? Pffft Liberals
Gun registration is not unConstitutional.

Hawaii and DC require registration of ALL firearms.

California, CT, HI, MD require registration of 50 cal and pre-ban "assault" rifles.

Louisiana requires some gun registration.

See DC vs Heller to see how ridiculously wrong you are, Batman.

Bullshit. I said that Christianity gains 2.5 million new adherants each year and you fired back with only American Christians.
Your games ain't workin...
Actually, I answered both in America and the world, but you are still misrepresenting the numbers. Worldwide, the percentage has stayed steady at 32%, but not if you delete Catholics. Of course the numbers are higher, the world population grows exponentially. But, as a percentage, there has been no change. In First World countries, Christianity is dying.

Why must you continually lie and river dance?

<quoted text>It's not the gun laws so much that is the issue; the issue is how very much the background checks are lacking.
Not having a CRIMINAL history does NOT necessarily mean one will be a responsible gun owner or will never wrongly use their gun.
Without an IN-DEPTH psychological and emotional evaluation and background check, guns will continue to be handed out like gum drops.
So do you think that all gun laws we have now are pretty much useless?

You'd seriously condone a government controlled psych check to purchase a gun?

Would you condone the same to have a child or buy a home?

You maybe right but it doesn't matter because background checks will never work anyway. Most of the spree shooters lately have obtained them legally anyway.
Well, yes, but why have any laws on any books, at all then?

Why must you clowns always lie about another's position, Batman?
February 1992, Ferguson was arrested and charged with harassing a woman on a subway.

That isn't enough to disqualify him , nor is anything else he did prior to the shooting.

The country was great for blacks? For women's. for the poor? You have a twisted view of reality. Things are actually getting better. They would even be better if our elected officials weren't fapping corporations to our detriment, if clowns like Reagan didn't aid and abet WalMart to take most manufacturing to China.

Off topic a lil, but you know what I find really f_cked up about Ferguson? The fact that he was a mooch immigrant that was so focused on racism, it drove him insane. He bought that gun with welfare money. Pisses me off.
You didn't read his history that well, did you. He was raised a child of priveledge until the death of his father. Yeah, he was a nut. He should not have been able to get a gun. Like that gun, he obtained residency status legally. He was mentally ill, but we stopped treating the mentally ill in the early 1980s.

Ask me your moronic last question when children and houses can be used as lethal weapons and when children and houses come to be for that main purpose.

What I do is CONDEMN a government that allows guns to be purchased like gum drops at the corner candy store.

Do I think the gun laws we have now are pretty much useless?

YES. Nothing more than smoke and mirrors for the most part- just a stupid and silly dog and pony act.

Now you have gone stupid.

"District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), was a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home and within federal enclaves."

Registration within a state is constitutional.
A national registration violates the second amendment.

BTW I'm not going to argue about this anymore , we will never see it the same. Nor will we ever agree your ideas will work at doing anything besides further destroying this country.

But I will leave you with some of my satire.

In the Church of the Mighty Gun.

For it is written , every man tremble before a Priest of the Mighty Gun.

We put our god high on the wall and praise it , In the Church of The Mighty Gun.

Have you hugged your Tank today?

Let no man say the Gun hold malice , for the Gun hath no evil in it's heart.

The Gun brings Liberty and Justice Let it's sound awaken thee , to the tears over another mans corpse.

I am Ripper... Tearer... Slasher... Gouger. I am the Teeth in the Darkness, the Talons in the Night. Mine is Strength... and Lust... and Power! I AM GUN!

You said the Gun killed thee ,but surely you mistook what was the aim of a marksman Priest, in the Church of the Mighty Gun.

Remember the sabbath day, to make all targets holey.

Blessed is the man who hath bullets to spare.

Surely the Lord deliever you unto me, not unlike swiss cheese.

Christianity in America is slowly going down, yes. But thoughout the world, Christianity is, and has always been, steadily rising.
• At slightly less than 2 billion, Christianity makes up about a third of the world population and approximately the same as the two next largest religions combined; Islam and Hinduism. Christianity is also the only religion represented in all 238 surveyed countries.
• The largest religion (Christianity) is aprox. 68% larger than the second largest religion (Islam) and 246% larger than the third largest religion (Hinduism).
• The nine smallest religions combined have fewer adherents than the third largest (Hinduism).
• And the eight smallest religions combined have fewer adherents than the fourth largest (Buddhism).
• The combined adherents of the three primary Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, makes up approximately 52.8%(3,202,240,666 persons) of the total population - more than half. Some times also Sikhism and the Bahá'í faith are counted as Abrahamic religions, in which case that number will be slightly higher.
• Non-religious people and people belonging to religions not part of the 12 world religions makes up slightly less than 27%. A smaller number than the largest religion, Christianity, but larger than the second largest religion, Islam.

Christians have been steadily about 33% of the world's population for the last 100 years.

And have you ANY idea that many job requirements call for those same psych checks that you obviously think are wrong?

"Three Different Types of Psychological Testing Used in the Workplace
by Chirantan Basu, Demand Media

Private and public sector companies often conduct psychological tests for candidates, usually for full-time employment. Jobs that require high-level security clearances from government agencies may require psychological assessments by trained professionals. Employees have certain rights with respect to psychological tests, such as the right to know the purpose of the tests and the results. Psychological tests may assess an employee's general aptitude, intelligence and personality."

And there is NO obsession with the VA (NOT VT) shooter- I was simply pointing out that he went through the prerequisite background check when he sought to legally purchase his guns.
What's up with you today, Huh?
And If, if, if.....the POINT is Ferguson was able to purchase his guns under the laws as they stood at the time.
And he would still be able to if it was TODAY instead of 1993.
That is because the background checks STILL suck.
So for the LAST time- because it is YOU who is getting obsessive here- the question is not whether Ferguson, the VA shooter or the Aurora shooter went through background checks; the POINT is that even if they did, the checks are a JOKE.
Pedantic? VA, VT, who gives a rat's ass? But, silly you, wrong again. It was on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic University, more commonly known as VT. Sheez, people, get a grip.
