    Maybe a few emails to Wally-World are in order?

    Interesting. Well I seem to be at the computer writing often anyway, letting Wal-Mart know how I feel about their involvement in any gun legislation won't take much time at all.

    Some of this stuff I support, its good to see they arent trying to push one big bill, but many smaller ones. Hopefully the extreme stuff will be filtered out (an AWB).

    I support improving the way in which information gets into NCIC. That information network should be broad and instantaneous. Just doing that in and of itself would have stopped VT or at least prevented the shooter from buying his handgun legally. Same with Aurora.

    Lets work within our current system.

    Wal-Mart would never dare interfere with the long standing tradition of the "walk." lol

    With that being said i'll surely send them something voicing my concerns. It's only right cause they send me, oh, about ten emails on a normal day...

    Wow. How easily and with so little care folks are willing to give up their rights amazes me. There should not be any background checks. It's just a feel good measure that infringes on the rights of the law abiding.

    How exactly is this better? One large bill would be shot down immediately, and if not, it would be easy to repeal later. Having a load of bills to fight is more work, less chance of success, and harder to fight if they pass.

    So youre ok with criminals and the mentally ill being able to buy guns without a background check? (NOT talking about private sales here)

    I think its better because with the current political climate, there may be enough momentum to push a big bill through. Registering semi automatics with NFA sounds crazy on its own, but tossed in with 20 other things, it could be accepted.

    I think "divide and conquer" is indeed the strategy of those pushing gun control. I'm sure we've all heard people who generally support the Second Amendment say things like "but people don't really need assault weapons for hunting." So, by identifying how many people support each incremental step they want to take, they can better estimate their chances for success. That's why I joined the NRA, in addition to some of my state-based firearms organizations.

    How could gun control legislation increase a retailer's business? Are retailers dumb enough to believe that?

    Their logic is that if less people went to gun shows, more would shop at retailers.

    Well if you are NOT talking about private party sales then what exactly are you talking about? EVERY FFL does NICS checks because by law they have to. So where exactly do you see some benefit? Criminals are already flagged in NICS. Mentally ill people that have some documented history that would disallow them from owning firearms are already flagged in NICS.

    Of course the mentally ill are a tricky group because plenty of them are not documented on any governmental level. Privacy rights interfere with little things like that.

    I have done this twice over the past few weeks. And mentioned places like CTD & Dick=s as being scape goats.

    Stop and think for a moment. These are the same doomass people that tried to prevent the new buzz-word "Fiscal Cliff" from taking place. But through all their effort we still went over it, and we are still about to hit the rocky bottom.
