Yes, it's the FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

Is that free for any individual?

Does it require a dealer to be licensed before accessing the System? Are there bulletin board police at local grocery stores who inspect the notices with the little tear-off phone numbers to make sure they are licensed dealers?


So - is that going to stop Bubba on route 5 from selling his old gun to Jimbob on country road 14523 - at a garage sale? To Jimbob who doesn't even go to school because he's mentally challenged? Who has a history of truancy, body odor, animal cruelty, and arson?

Or to Slash who just got paroled on Monday?

Or to Grandma who thinks people are watching her all the time???

............need I continue?..............

*facepalm*

It could happen! Actually, I'm thinking of switching from a right-leaning independent to becoming a Demo. That way I could help ensure a personal crusade that I'm mounting: "Anybody but Hillary."

So, yes, I would bite the bullet and vote for Sanders.

Sanders will be like Ron Paul, the establishment status quo in his party will do everything in their power to defeat him. If he were to win, mainstream Dems would probably not like his Administration, just like Ron Paul.


I disagree with that, the main money supporters of the Democrats are also supporting Sander's, I'm not including the banks that support both parties. Ron and Rand have never had the financial supporter of the Republican party, this is a huge difference.

There seems to be many different styles of Bernie Sanders presidential campaigns bumper stickers.


If you're going to get a bumper sticker, be sure to get one from the official site so the campaign gets the money;

Bernie Store

While your post smacks of stereotyping and ignorance, it is perfectly legal for a person to sell their gun to another person.

You can facepalm as much as you want but requiring background checks for every single purchase wouldn't matter if criminals don't obey that law. It also won't matter if mental cases aren't reported to the system.

You won't believe this but: guns are not the problem.

There is no loophole. There never was. There is the possibility that a citizen might conduct a private sale during a gun show. Any vendor at the show follows applicable law.

The Wikipedia article you quoted me says that itself. "A PERCEIVED gap in the law." Perceived meaning it doesn't exist.

And no, I don't believe in common ground reform. I believe in "shall not be infringed."

Ah, Memories...
www.businessinsider.com...
www.businessinsider.com...

Suddenly, my opinion on Bernie is being spread by the pundits as well...
thehill.com...

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the Ron Paul of the 2016 election — with his enormous crowds, a network of hardcore supporters and an iconoclasm that seems to transcend the politics-as-usual establishment.

But none of that will be enough to carry him to victory. The fringe candidate drawing huge crowds and surging in the polls because he appeals to the party base is nothing new. He'll strut and fret his hour upon the stage and then be heard no more — just like then-Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in 2012.


theweek.com...

www.slate.com...




Their politics may be 180-degrees from each other, but Bernie is certainly running parallel to Ron at this point. It's actually sort of fun to have these political equivalents to a pop cap pistol in the races. We've gone from H. Ross Perot in 1992, to Pat Buchanon in 96, to Howard Dean in 2000, to Dennis Kucinich in 2004, to Ron Paul in the last 2 elections. It adds some much needed spice...

Do you honestly believe that he is going to do anything that will make a difference?

He has already been making a difference as senator, so why wouldn’t make a difference as president?




What? What will he change? What will he do or undo to fix this mess our country is in?

He has a different list of priorities that pertain to the citizens of the US of A, rather than bowing to the oligarchs profits.





He is just like everyone of the other career politicians that make Capitol Hill their bread and butter.

That is a long way from the truth, he has been an independent who has been funded through grass roots donations. Simply put he is not indentured to the lobbyists, that makes him different.




Sorry. He is not going to save us.

Go to church if you want to be saved; as for Bernie he would improve the quality of life for millions of Americans.

Because he's REAL.

Because he discusses REAL issues.

Because people are sick of the FAKES and their FAKE promises and FAKE concern and their transparent pandering.

I say he has a really good shot at it.


Weird they said the same thing about Obama

I say Rand Paul could prove a pretty worthy obstacle to Sanders

Well Rand needs to get the same treatment.

That he is just saying the right things to get elected.

That isn't exclusive to one side.

I live in the great state of Vermont. Bernie Sanders has been bringing the same message for 40 years, beating both Democrats and Republicans in State elections.

Running for President will be a major test of his convictions for sure. But I believe he will hang tough and not be compromised in his convictions by the political wranglings of the present party enforcers.

Peace;
Andy

Bernie like any politician who is not in the pocket of the big money corporations will never win. He is a neat story much like Ron Paul, Donald trump, even someone like Ross Perot back in the day. All these " mavericks" are an interesting story and can actually dictate the outcome of an election depending on whom and how many votes they siphon from thosed deemed worthy to serve by power brokers. I am not trying to be the downer here and it's great someone not acting like the rest inspires people. In the end your choice will be Bush or Clinton. Only two corrupt and backed enough to have the position to benefit those who run and finance politics. Choice is an illusion. Even if Bernie or Donald or someone else did win, the electronic voting machines would never say that.

He just might beat Hilary as she has a lot of image and legal problems, besides that the youth identify her as being part of Corporate America, the culture of Wall Street.


He made “a direct appeal to black voters” at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference gala in Baton Rouge on Saturday according to MSNBC, and “whipped up a thunderous crowd” of 4,500 in Kenner’s Pontchartrain Center according to the Times Picayune. (When I mentioned to Reed that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal only managed to draw 1,000 people to the same venue for his presidential announcement, she quipped “and he probably had to pay them to get them there.”)



“The media pundits are worried and they’re wondering—how does it happen, why are four, five thousand people out here in Louisiana? You’re not supposed to be here. Why were 11,000 people out a week ago in Arizona, in Phoenix?” he said. “And the answer, I think, it that people are catching on, that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way we do economics, and politics, in America today.”

He would only win against a establishment Republican. I believe he would lose to say Rand or Trump who are non establishment. Most Americans don't support socialism which would lead us into a crisis like Greece.


Bernie would only win against candidates people dislike like Bush or Hilary. But if the GOP rigs it for Bush, he might as well win because people prefer a well intention socialists with a flawed ideology that would prolong our demise over a corrupt candidate that would put us straight into the sh17 hole.

If it's a Trump-Palin ticket, think he'd get a chance to fire her before she quit?

Good one! LOL

I wish he would, but no he won't.

Here's how I think things will go... He will beat Hillary and it will be Bush and Rubio on the other side. Bernie will be taking the lead, until Bush Sr. dies of old age or some health complications. This will create enormous sympathy for Jeb and he will take his intended place in charge.

Shortly after, a scandal will follow suit, where the Saudi involvement with 9/11 will be implicated and through them Bush Sr. as well. Jeb will feel compelled to clear his family's name by starting a war with the Saudis.

This will have been the plan all along.

Why Bernie Sanders will not become the democratic nominee: he isn't corporately funded. Check and mate.

No way in hell we start a war with Saudi.

Name any other country, well besides Israel and you got a good prediction.

Thank you! Sanders has a proven track record, he isn't the new kid on the block like Obama, the comparison is ridiculous.

and some believe in a "Well organized militia" , there is no easy answer to this question, but if you are a one-issue voter go for it, the fringe only occupy 15% of each end of the spectrum
