    I'm a long time member of the NRA. Altho there are several things they do that I do not agree upon. There is one thing for certain. Once the NRA lightens up, and allows the government to start regulating this or that, we'll all lose our gun rights, freedoms,etc. I do not trust 98% of our so called politicians. They are all out to make a name for themselves, see their names in light, and pat themselves on the back. Give em an inch and they'll take a mile. Long live the NRA, the GOA, etc.

    What do Gun Owners Really Want?

    While I do not mind the instant background check. I also don't want to limit private sales. Personally I will only sell to a ccw holder (letting the govt take care of the background check) and will only buy from people I know. But that does not mean everyone follows those guidelines.

    More guns, free ammo, and a government that understands what "shall not be infringed" means!

Also, for those in a pinch or simply just do not like the gun they have bought and want to sell it, I'd imagine they get more of their money back as opposed to a pawn shop or trade-in value.

    What do you guys think about those percentages/p2p sales?
    I prefer person to person also, when possible. Its always fun to meet other gun owners and hear the history of the firearm, but I really like the idea of not putting my name on some list somewhere also. I can often find better deals online than I can by buying from a private sale, so the only real advantage to the private sale for me is to not have the paperwork hassle. Restrictions are against the whole idea of the 2nd A.

    Re: What do Gun Owners Really Want?

    I just want to be left alone. I'll respect the liberties of anyone as in my opinion each person should make their own decisions about what's right or wrong, but I would also like to have my own liberties left alone. It is comical right now how I'm expected to tolerate gay rights, tolerate welfare drawers, tolerate global climate change nuts, etc, but with all the preaching of tolerance that comes from those groups, me and my guns cannot receive any reciprocated "tolerance".

    I'm sure my hangups result from my lack of education and understanding. Should've gone for my phd instead of my master's degree, then I might "get it". (Sarcasm intended)

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    WHAT DO I WANT? As a gun owner!

    I want a place where I can walk around in condition white! I want a place were my family is safe from harm to inculde Drug Dealers, Car Jackers, Home Invasions, Road Rage (Myself Included, working on it ), and Child Molesters!

    Until I find that place, I'll carry a gun in condition yellow!

    NOTE to the Bimbo* on CNN - I've gone thru 3 FBI background check to get my CCW for FL, UT, and NV, so why do I need another background check to buy my next firearm?

    *Since Hostest is dead, we'll now have to buy Bimbo Bread! It's fortfied with mind numbing supplements from Mexico!

    I was having a discussion with some friends about guns and their need. They bring up England as one example for gun control and its direct effect on reducing murder. England has 1/4 the homicide rate per capita vs. the US. What are some thoughts on why the same thing wouldn't work here?

    Murder yes, but other violent crimes GB leads the way (assault, rape, robbery). Also, look at all the European countries with gun control, many have higher murder rates and violent crime rates.
