Most astonishingly, the same NRA-inspired law forces the FBI to destroy Brady background checks for gun purchases within 24 hours, which makes it harder for law enforcement to identify dealers who falsify their records and makes it impossible to cross-check purchases made by gun traffickers from multiple dealers. Although federal law requires a dealer who sells more than one handgun to a single individual in a five-day period to file a special report with the BATF, the agency is unable to cross-check purchases from multiple dealers, so gun traffickers can simply hop from one gun store to the next, buying a single handgun at each until they accumulate the arsenals they want. Put another way, the NRA and its backers in Congress created a law that forces the FBI to destroy evidence of crimes, evidence of illegal multiple gun purchases.

Which is why we americans are so fond of our guns, if by some awful thing our military should fall and/or our country invaded, the invaders would still have to deal with a heavely armed civilian group. America may go down, but if it does, it will be one american at a time. We will fight, we will die, for what we believe, thats just the way it is.
You have a point there.

But somebody forgot to tell the 15 million Latinos who have already invaded!LOL!

Naw, you got to remember, according to anti gun freaks its not the criminal, its the gun that causes the crime. And it was an elderly man who was the victim, seems like the criminal is also a pussy. LOL Give it a few minutes, lets see how many blame the ole guy and not the crook. LOL
