Here is the link to a story about online gun sales being allowed without background checks. This is a very misleading story. What I would like to see is the intelligent people of THR to comment on this story. Please no anger/rage comments. Be wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove. I appreciate in advance all of your help on this. http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/ASSIGNMENT_13_Armed_and_dangerous_the_world_of_internet_gun_sales__139323983.html?storySection=story

Sounds like some editor at an NBC station thought the recent piece by NBC was cool and he should copy it...

Sigh....

The logic I see is we also need to ban newspapers that run classified ads too. Sensationalism on a slow news day is all I see. :barf:

Just another attempt to scare people. Felons are going to get a gun if they want it. Private sales of firearms shouldn't be to blame. It's not actually buying a weapon online either. The Internet only acts as a means of finding a seller and setting up a face to face.

I had an FFL for over 12 years. I sold not a lot of firearms but all the paperwork and record keeping was impecable right down to the back ground checks on everyone to whom I sold guns. I went out of business in 1982, paid sales taxes and income taxes on my profits. I turned my records in to the ATF and later found out about the illegial sales of guns that went to the Cartels in Mexico sponsered by the ATF. I felt sold out and stupid. A Bill of Sale with statement that the person buying the gun is not a felon or of abususive behavior is perfectly fine by me at this point. I will not sell a firearm to someone I don't know but thats jusi me. Be Safe

Why does this seem like a really good idea right now? Why not boycott the newspaper? Heck why not boycott the anti gun media to begin with? They need viewers to survive you know...
