Honest people don't mind the background checks. I think they're ok. But criminals will always have whatever weapons they want. They don't buy guns where registration or background checks are required. So they don't buy from gun shows? They don't care. They probably don't buy from gun shows anyway.<quoted text>
Actually... it is.
What a shame 90 percent of Americans who insist common sense dictates there should be background checks have people like you insisting you'd rather risk selling firearms unchecked to felons because any day now- after 245 years- the government is going to swoop in and take guns and enslave the entire population.
Do you believe it's impossible for someone or a group of someones to work their way into positions of power? I don't believe anything is impossible, especially after the planes flew into towers and bombs exploded at a marathon. Those people all worked and lived among us, some as friends.
Background checks? For pressure cookers? How far do you go.
It doesn't matter. People who have evil in them will use whatever is available to them. Background checks won't stop that. Banning AK47s won't stop that either.
