    Here's just one reason...

    When you die, how will you give your weapons to your sons and daughters?

    In Iowa, in order to purchase a handgun, (even from a private party, face to face) you must have a permit to do so, or a Permit To Carry Weapons... both assure that you have passed the NICS check. The permit to purchase costs $5. annually... Or you can go through the requirements of a PCW, and pay $50. for 5 years.

    It's a hassle, but it works... I suppose you could expand that to long guns as well... but, I generally don't believe it will do any good.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I have a simple rule that defines my beliefs on gun rights:

    If it's not something that a criminal would comply with, then we shouldn't be subjected to it.

    I agree with universal background checks. We already know that the checks that exist have kept more than one million firearms out of the hands of persons who should not have had them. It may be inconvenient, but I consider it a reasonable step to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.

    Not in favor at all.

    1) This will equate to a national registration with the ATF for all sales of all firearms.
    2) I'm worried that it will be a crime to posses a gun with a serial that was checked against someone else. IE: I can't borrow my fathers gun without it being a crime.
    3) I can't give my future children or grandchildren a gun because, at this rate, it may be illegal down the road.
    4) With the national registration, eventually comes confiscation. When every gun is known, and future guns are banned, the ATF will eventually come to collect.
    Edite: 5) Brought to my attention in another thread: What happens to someones guns when they die? Property of the government? A gun "death tax" if you will.

    See the part I bolded and my rule above. No background check of any type has ever prevented a criminal from getting a firearm. It may have momentarily inconvenienced them, but not prevented them.

    I am not required to pass a background check for the other lethal items that I purchase frequently...

    You know...

    Large cans of tomato soup, hammers, sports equipment, rope, etc...


    There are many other reasons but this one mainly.

    Keboostman think of it like this.........

    National emergency............Katrina, Riots, whatever............

    You or your family have no guns! Power is out, that means NO background checks! I'm a law abiding citizen I"m going to obey the law if you or your family member needs a gun, Sorry Keboostman no gun for you. Or how about your spouse, or your kids, need a gun to carry for protection, sory you cannot legally transfer that gun to her...

    On the other side, do you think criminals are going to play by these rules?

    Why, just look at how well background checks have worked in Chicago, Detroit, LA... Oh, and Mr. Laughner who shot the senator in AZ, went through a NICS check... Oh yeah, and that whack job in Sandy Hook elementary... he passed a NICS check, right? No, he just killed the person who did.

    And that feller at the THEEEATER in Colorado.. he passed an NICS check... or more'n one...

    Kept guns out of the hands of 1.5 million people... yes it did... probably some of them shouldn't have been barred, either.

    They do serve a purpose, but they are not 100% effective. It would bolster the economy of FFLs though... $25-50 for each NICS check for any private sale...
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose
