For those that like to argue "You need a background check to buy a weapon" No... No you don't. You can legally obtain firearms throughout the united states without background checks.Feb 4, 2013

- One person buys bulk, sells "person to person". How do you think criminals get firearms?Feb 4, 2013
- I'm not a lawyer, nor an investigator, but I imagine many are stolen.
Firearm violence is not a priority for me because it is something I only hear about on the news; therefore, it does not pass the "sniff test". In other words, I will not get all excited because network news wants me to believe I could be gunned down at any moment. I know rape victims, strong arm robbery victims, assault victims, knife assault victims, etc., but I've never met one person yet who had a run in with a firearm.
The idea that Firearm violence is "epidemic" or "rampant" is a manufactured crisis in that I only hear about it on the news. On the flip side, I do know people who defended themselves against knives with a pistol, or scared away burglars with a long gun.
Seriously Michael, you sound like an intelligent guy. I have to mute this post now not because I don't like you but because I know the discussion will never achieve change. I'm continuously drawn into it because I always feel like what I tell you might make sense to you. Best of luck to you.Feb 4, 2013
- The really sad thing is that he still has the child.Feb 4, 2013
- And for all the bastards turning this into a gun control debate, lets all rememeber that murder and kidnapping is illegal in the state, and yet he continued in his crime. Wouldn't be the first time a criminal didn't obey the laws of the land.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.Feb 4, 2013
