    If a Background Check would clear me of Liability, Then how is that a bad thing???Even if I sell a gun to a good friend and something happens then I am possibly accountable in some way or it is "percieved" that I am accountable in some way? I guess I would not have a problem with a Background check. What if I am the buyer? If I am legal to own a Gun, Do I care about a Background check??

    Just my 2 cents...

    We're pulling ahead with 54% of the vote.

    I don't have to have a background check to buy anything else. Why should a firearm be any different. Frankly I don't think background checks should be done at all.
