After reading through this thread I thought I would clear up some misconceptions that Europeans and even some Americans have on how easy it is to buy
a gun in the states.
here's the procedure,
You need a valid photo ID
You fill out a BATF form which asks a bunch of questions about your legal status and criminal history. (lieing on the form is a felony)
The gun dealer calls the F.B.I. with your information and they run a instant background check. After which the F.B.I. will tell the dealer that he can
proceed with the sale or that you have been denied. They can also put a delay on the sale for 4 days if they want to investigate you further.
Reading some posts would lead one to believe that a 13 year old can walk into a hardware store and walk out with a machine gun.
The right to defend yourself and your family is the most basic of human rights. I truly feel sorry for the folks who have chosen to give up their
liberty in exchange for an imagined security. I hope you never see the day when it all breaks down and the government is not there to "protect" you.
The wolves will be out in packs and the sheep will be slaughtered.
Thank God I live in a nation that still has a few sheepdogs around to chase away the wolves.
