The only problem I have people that carry are the arguments and justification for doing so. One gun isn't enough for some people. If someone said I'm fearful for my life and family life but really never want to harm another rhuman being then fair play, you were honest about your insecurities and a gun helps alleviate that stress/fear.
But for me those who hide behind standardised responses such as" I have the right to" "constitutional right", "amendment", "history shows tyrants" "government will kill us otherwise" is what I have a problem with, a detachment from social reality, a desire to have a gun more than a need. They lack the same levels of empathy that I would like to associate with, often a black and white approach h and no in between.
Obviously just my opinion . Have to stop cos this isn't a gun debate. Soz.

How many crimes have you stopped or how many criminals have you killed recently? Resolved any hostage situations this week on your days off duty?
If the answer is no I request you defer from the delusional that by somehow carrying a gun it is protecting people like me. All you are doing is helping alleviate your own paranoia, nothing more.
This complex you have developed as a result of serving the public is incredibly dangerous, projecting your insecurities onto people that aren't as fearful (aware as you would say) as you.
You don't protect me. You may have done when a cop (on duty) but in no way shape or form does you desiring to carry a weapon make me any safer. I am not sure why anyone would feel that way.
And if the answer was yes you have, than you are taking the law into your own hands which is even more dangerous than your perception.

To add to what rossacus said, your avatar is absolutely assinine.
Why do gun owners say people are afraid of guns.where do you get off on that stance. Guns can't harm me without someone pulling the trigger so how can you ever come to that conclusion? I fear people that have guns like you, completely oblivious to the fact you are more of a threat to me with a gun than not. It's that simple.
You feel you are immune to human emotions and mistakes. To genuinely believe that I am afraid of guns when I state I fear the people with guns highlights to me you are a danger, regardless of you knowing yourself.

I absolutely love how a guy asks a legitimate question and the anti-gun trolls jump in and completely trash the thread.
Yes, OP, as long as both purchases were recorded on the same 4473 and you passed the check, you should be good to go. Then again, now that I think about it, if its not in stock, they probably don't have the serial number to record for the 4473, so...you may well have to fill out another one and submit another check.
Plus the OP has created a thread when he knows fine well the answer, when any sane person would ask the people he purchased it off before looking for validation on a conspiracy website. If he genuinely wanted to know rather than an announcement, you simply ask why from where u got it. Simple.
