    limiting gun-purchases to one-per-month, makes the criminal enterprise of a gun-runner...very very costly and unprofitable.

    no my friends, background checks, 1-month limits on gun purchases, 10-round limits on magazines, are not "tyranny".

    they are inconveniences.
    At this point, aside from background checks, they are also non-existent in most jurisdictions.

    I collect guns. A dealer is not going to "hold" for twelve months a purchase of 12 guns I want to buy. Did that occur to you?

    Background checks do nothing to stop criminals from getting guns.

    All they do is make the lawful citizen guilty until proven innocent.

    Imagine that, we must prove that we're worthy and pay for permission to exercise our rights.

    Perhaps a background check is in order to exercise free speech, or religion, etc.

    How many people would cry foul if a background check was necessary to vote?

    And I'll premptively call bovine feces on any apples and oranges fruit basket arguments. .. these are all inherent rights that all men are born with. They did not originate with government, politicians, constitutions, kings, popes, gods or devils. Therefore, they cannot be taken away by such characters. They can only be surrendered by a complacent, ignorant and selfish society.

    Except they just go steal guns, because they are criminals, and then sell them.

    Just because your city decided to create a lot of un-enforceable laws, and then deny law abiding citizens the right to defend themselves, doesn't mean they have a right to infringe on anyone else's rights.

    That prohibition of buying 0 a month on meth, crack, cocaine, heroine, and marijuana is going really well.

    Should I have to run a background check on someone before I sell them my car? It is my property, that I wish to sell, that someone with ill intent could use to kill other people.

    There were no such restrictions prior to 1968. Firearms, and ammo, and machine guns, and cannon, were easily mail ordered. I seem to have missed noticing the out of control violence of the era.

    In a lot of states it is actually already required that every firearm sale have a background check.

    Yes, in some states, private sales can go unchecked... however, the seller usually knows (or should know) that if the firearm is used in a crime or if he sells to a felon he is looking at some serious trouble down the line. The very few firearm we have sold privately have been to very trusted friends.

    Now, I've stood behind a gun counter for a couple of years and I can tell you with certainty that people who cannot legally purchase a firearm DO try to buy one legally.. and while they are waiting for their background check to go through the police roll up and come in with handcuffs and escort them out. They are those that are that stupid. And, yes, they are stopped from purchasing by laws. And it's fun to watch.

    But, it has done nothing to keep people from illegally getting their hands on firearms.

    um, they make it impossible for them to buy guns from legal gun-dealers.

    that forces them to steal guns or buy them from shady characters, who may rob or kill them.

    Flawed logic. You are assuming that gun runners follow the law. They don't. Adding more laws affects only those that choose to follow them and borders on insanity.

    Inconvenient?
    You bet. In the same way that some of our lawmakers consider the U.S. Constitution an inconvenience.

    I'm just curious here... is there any evidence of someone buying several legal handguns in one state, at one time, and transporting them to another for criminal purposes? Has this actually happened?

    Do you have links viable information back up this statement? I'm genuinely interested in reading it if you do.
