MeGrendel and Squrlz, right and right. I actually did a trade with my barber for my 9mm. I have known him for 6+ years and he is a good guy. I would not ever do a craig's list sale of a weapon. Those that do are usually shills for selling guns to the folks that shouldn`t have them in the first place. I have never had an issue with back round checks in the most general of terms. BUT then I am a law abiding person who has nothing to hide. My current work requires me to have a security screening every 2 years that would put a gun check to shame. I do worry that MY government would use the information acquired for other things. Squrlz, it was an honor to serve and save lives. Have to say though that 50% of our rescues could have been avoided if folks just had a little common sense. The ocean is a harsh mistress.

Petulant baby, throwing a fit because the bill he was sure his Senate would pass, let it fail. He was planning for the House to kill it, so he could blame Conservatives.

Squrlz4Sale-"I don't think you should be selling a gun to a felon or a mentally ill person"
Two points: I don`t plan on selling a gun to anyone I don`t know and trust.
But us Law Abiding citizens are not the problem. Criminals, on the other hand, are. Why, they`ve occasionally been know to break the law.
So, who exactly are these laws aimed at? The law abiding citizen. So the law will not do any good.
Second point: You CAN NOT POSSIBLY enforce a law controlling person-to-person sales. Hell, you can`t enforce a law controlling person-to-person sales of automobiles, which are much larger and much more traceable.
