No Background Checks



I didn't realize that the Far Right was taking the position that there should be no background check for those who wish to buy firearms. At the very least that is their position on gun shows and most seem to advocate that position for all sales.

I first heard Texas Congressman Jeb Hensarling say it on The Mark Davis Show and then there was the noon time buzz about Texas Congressman Steve Toth with Wolf Blitzer this morning. (Video).

Someone was not impressed:

Can someone give me an example of a person that Piers Morgan considers smart? Every time I hear him say something, he's talking about how "stupid" someone is.

So mister far left . Have you ever even been to a gun show? It is true an individual who does not make his living off of gun sales may sale his personal collection if he desires. These transactions are far and few at gun shows. But mr. Odumbass says its 40 percent. BULLSH,,T.

There should be no background check in a private citizen to private citizen sale. Any dealer still has to comply with federal law and run a background check. If you are selling your car should you be required to run a background check? That person cold be an alcoholic and slaughter an innocent family (I know Green, that's your bread and butter), or commit suicide in it, or unintentionally harm someone with it, etc.

Piers Morgan is everything that's wrong with America re immigration. A stupid, pompous foreign man.
He's been here too long, taking jobs away from American tabloid hacks and second-rate talent evaluators

If you weren't born here, but want to live (and make a living) here and complain about it, get your green card the way Craig Ferguson did!

As a conservative, I have never called for a ban on background checks. I believe they are a good thing and everyone buying from a dealer should go through it. But, If I choose to sell a gun to a friend, I should not have to go through the added expense of a background check. I will probably know the person already.

Stop lumping all conservatives in the same group as the right wing nuts.

It is nice to see that we have a true balance of power is this country still. Great to know that one ruler cannot force his policies or agenda on the people at will.

I wonder what the libs would be saying if a Republican President used EO to limit abortions.

What makes Piers Morgan, hollywood celebs,and Washington idiotic city slickers, qualified to be be experts on guns? Every stink'n one of these idiots have body guards or security keeping them safe 24/7 and it really tics me off for them to be telling us what is best for us. Making quotes like "who needs a 30 round clip". How about that poor Texas rancher that just happen to live near the border? Do I need to explain? How about the 60% of Americans that have never been afraid of our government, that are seeing unbelieveable things going on in Washington now? Do I need to explain? Perfectly sane people are now concerned about which way America is headed, nervous yes, scared no. Huge numbers of us who are normally law abiding folks are very concerned about our country. Simply put, we no longer trust our own federal gov. and they are doing nothing to re-assure us. Think about it.

At last check: there are about 30,000 gun deaths in America each year. Only a third are due to crime. A third are due to suicide.

How many abortions are there each year in America? About 10 times that or 333,000.

Check the facts. Doctors kill more innocent lives each year in this country than criminals with guns.

Piers who?

Man, this is fun watching the Wingnuts come even more unhinged. Last year, they frothed at the mouth over voters showing ID cards before they could vote, and now their hair is on fire over NOT showing ID cards to buy a gun?! Let me get my popcorn and a cold beer so I can enjoy this freak show even more!

Top Notch, Danny!

guns and abortions cannot be addressed in the same comment, unless the aforementioned abortion is carried out with a deuce deuce mag

Uhhh, Reagan and both Bushes used EO to prohibit abortions being discussed as an option for people at clinics that received federal funding, even if federal funds wouldn't be used for the abortion.

Keep trying, dumbass.

We should all have cannons mounted on the roofs of our houses.

3:16...and there was outrage back then, albiet less frothy than today. That is pale in comparison to the amount of EO's being used on guns, and it really was symbolic in nature. It did nothing to prevent abortions in anyway. The political world has changed buddy, the majority of dems these days support abortion. This wasn't so back then.

Polarization....heard of it!

I am all for banninng EO in any circumstance, it really eats at the core of a democracy. I wouldn't support its use for any reason.

Let me know how you feel next time your psychiatrist asks about guns in your home. Back to your video games bud.

You can vote and drive and be a parent without any background checks...why not be able to own a pea shooter?

I knew many who did their own abortions before they were legal, being legal only means safer for the mother. Which means when a family already has too many children, the children have their mom longer.
Background checks for guns compared to abortions?

I fully support background checks for the sale of computers and Internet service contracts.

I fully support background checks for all the idiots who post thier rhetoric, hate-spewing trash on here.

Since I have a CHL, I have had one, thank you.
