Unless they are trying to boost gun sales, then make all the guns you just bought illegal and since you bought them at the gun store they have all ur info.. NOW then confiscate them from you and they get your guns plus they already got ur moneys
I always ALWAYS buy private, in texas if you buy private you have to do NOTHING but hand someone money and walk away with the gun.edit on 12-2-2013 by dc4lifeskater because: (no reason given)

This number should make anyone complaining about Obama taking away their guns pretty damn silly.
You should also feel like a sucker if you have gone out and bought guns just because you thought Obama was going to take them away, because you fell for some slick marketing that played on your fear and paranoia from the gun industry.
