    No background check needed to fire gun on range

    No background check needed to fire gun on range - JSOnline

    May 16, 2010

    Sean Eaton, owner of Fletcher Arms in Waukesha, says there’s only so much owners can do to keep felons from using store gun ranges.

    In a series of reports, the Journal Sentinel has revealed several special rules and laws passed by Congress that benefit gun stores:

    In January, the newspaper reported federal investigators recommended revoking the license of Badger Outdoors after a 2006 inspection - a rare move that could have closed the store. But there was no revocation and the store remains open, operating as Badger Guns.
    ...

    Another report detailed the history of a law quietly passed by Congress that hides information from the public about guns used in crimes and the stores that sell them. President Barack Obama promised to get rid of the measure but has embraced most of the law and added even more rules that could make it harder for law enforcement to crack down on stores selling guns to criminals.

    The Milwaukee district attorney's office charged him Friday with illegal gun possession stemming from his rental at Badger Guns.

    Cardona-Marquez is facing other criminal charges. In March, Greenfield police found a gun hidden in his car and he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, according to a criminal complaint.

    Cardona-Marquez later was charged with burglarizing six homes across Milwaukee County, stealing more than $90,000 in jewelry and cash, according to a complaint.

    Cardona-Marquez also was charged with robbing a jewelry store on Milwaukee's south side and making off with $50,000 in loot, according to the complaint. Police found a gun, apparently dropped by Cardona-Marquez or an accomplice, at the store.

    I have one simple question for the prosecutor and the judge: Why was the scumbag still on the street?

    Notice that they said "charged" with this and that. Nowhere do they say Convicted!

    There be the problem! The CJ system actually has to convict and lock up the scumbags . . . rather than the (police) catch and (courts) release system we have in place today.

    In the face of what this current administration his to contend with, like our economy, an on going war involvement, employment, and a few other things impacting roughly 300 million people... do you really think President Obama should really or is really concern with what you have sited. If there is such a grave concern wouldn't the state governments be quicker to in act laws to address this matter? After all, he's only been in office for 18 months.

    I think your logic is flawed.

    I believe that the majority of Democrats in office will NEVER pass up a chance to go AGAINST the 2nd Amendment.

    Obama, Pelosi, Boxer and other leading Democrats have consistently voted against the 2nd Amendment every time a vote was held on a bill that had anything to do with guns or gun ownership. The only law I can think of that was gun related that got Democrat votes was that Credit Card Law that made it possible to carry in National Parks. The Democrats voted for the bill because of the Credit Card aspect and were totally against making carry legal in National Parks - even Obama commented about this aspect of the bill.

    I don't understand how anyone can be pro-gun / pro-2nd Amendment and be a Democrat. This is not to say that the Republicans are wonderful. Most of the Republicans stink too!!! We should vote them ALL out of office and tell the next bunch: DO A BETTER JOB OR YOU WILL BE OUT OF OFFICE TOO!!!!

    I'm not enamored at all with the congressional Democrats; or the Republicans for that matter. If there were a voice vote on an "assault weapons" ban in the US house today it would fail. Almost any kind of gun control would pass the US senate-with 6-10 Republican votes.

    The US house is much more pro-gun than the house that passed the "assault weapons" ban by one vote in 1994. BTW: That vote was the Republican minority leader, Bob Michels. An extension of the AWB passed the US senate in 2004 with 10 Republican votes.

    We have not heard one serious gun control proposal from the current administration in many months. Reason: 65 pro-gun house Democrats wrote a letter to AG Holder and told him to lay off the gun control rhetoric.

    Yes, but Dems have lost many votes from being seen as the party of Gun Control in the past. This administration and its congressional leaders have initiated 0 major gun legislation - and they're not going to. Obama is not the type for suicidal stands on principle - or many absolute stands on anything. This is not the guy who's going to take what for most is a secondary issue - well behind the economy, the war and now the oil spill - and run with it because he believes in it. He would have already. Who knows what he strongly believes in.

    If they were, they would have initiated legislation for an assault weapons ban months ago when there was a lot of press about A. Weapons in some areas in the West, don't remember the details but it was an obvious event to trigger such an attempt. Nothing.

    When Pelosi was interviewed about Gun legislation initiatives early on, she was not interested in anything that way, answered briefly and changed the subject.

    Especially with the recent Supreme Court ruling they will do nothing, as they have done nothing, in this area.

    Just some quick comments. In many states the Dems or Repubs won't even attempt any action on the 2A. I know that we have to be diligent in keeping an eye on this matter, but I honestly don't see any way, at least in the near future, that any legislation against guns will be put up for a vote.
