Gee, I can hardly buy guns here in CA. And I have no criminal record, steady employment. And as a member of the Great White Hetero American Male
Conservative Conspiracy, shouldn't such purchases be a lot easier for me?
Damn, maybe I shouldn't have missed that last meeting. Pretty sure my dues are current though.
Seriously, though. If I have an investigation in my record, or a restraining order, or even civil cases with domestic violence (given or received) I
would not be allowed to purchase a firearm even after the two week waiting period.
many of these guys were known, active terrorists. Had been caught committing heinous acts. Why were they not arrested the second they entered American
territory? Why not simply apply the same rules applied to the rest of American citizenry, and deny them the purchase since there's a federal
investingation pending with their name on it?
Once again, proving security is not the Government's job, state or federal. It should be the people's individual right and responsibility. And
government should not be allowed to remove the tools and legal protections that allow us to exercise those rights.
