Washington Post, Editorial, 30 January, 2009

"Licensed gun dealers in Virginia are required to conduct background checks on buyers, including those to whom they sell at gun shows. Yet, according to the Virginia State Police, up to 35 percent of vendors at the scores of gun shows throughout the state are unlicensed and thus are under no obligation to perform the checks. This makes no sense, and the public is put at risk because felons or the mentally ill are not screened out if they attempt to purchase guns."

Yeah, sure. Whatever you say.

NEWS FLASH!! Background checks have been required at gun shows for a very long time now. And BATF is at EVERY gun show, along with state, county, and other local law enforcement...

Time they stop estimating and put up or shut up. We want to see some arrests to prove what they are spewing.

Peter Hannaford, The American Spectator, 19 March, 2009

"The ATF estimates that more than 7,700 of the guns sold in the U.S. last year were traced to Mexico. Mexico's gun laws are stricter than ours. Drug cartels are said to pay U.S. citizens to buy assault and other weapons for them at gun shows, where background checks are not required nor sales easily traced. The recently passsed "stimulus" package includes $10 million Project Gunrunner, a federal crackdrown on U.S. gun-running networks."

Hannaford is a former confidant of Ronald Reagan. The Spectator is a conservative journal. This comes from the conservative side of the debate.

Gee, we already know how well Obama keeps his word... I would rather buy swamp land than trust a Chicago Con Man...;-)

"Obvious to whom? What proof do you have? NONE "

To who's advantage is it to help flair the paranoia of the gun control issue? Obviously, to those that benefit monitarily from it... Those that market and sell guns. They will continue to fuel the paranoia because that means more profits to them when clearly Obama has no plans to address gun control... more important matters regarding the economy, healthcare, education and Afganistan on his plate. The only thing being addressed with the Mexican border issue will be help in enforcement. Nada mas.

Clinton is doing her job looking like she is invested in the matter. Gun control is NOT on Obama's radar. Obama stated this morning his concentration is on enforcement. PERIOD. He has bigger fish to fry and doesn't want to get involved in an emotionally explosive issue right now. WAAAAAAAY too many other important matters to attend to.

" Obviously, gun vendors are going to continue trying to dupe you because they are lining their pockets all the way to the bank. "

Obvious to whom? What proof do you have? NONE

OK - that's right. But my leap of logic is no more absurd than your implication that if all 53% of the voters who supported Obama had known what you know, then they would all have voted differently.

Back to the point . . . as Simba says, Obama has much bigger fish to fry than taking on the emotional issue with intractable positions that gun control represents. Whatever one thinks of Obama, he's no dummy. Picking a fight on gun control while the fabric of our economic survival is at risk would be dumb. On the other hand, rampant drug crimes in northern Mexico threaten US national security. That's a legitimate and appropriate isuue that needs attention. Pretending that US procured firearms are not part of that problem is a fantasy.

Obama has slightly larger issues to deal with than gun control. That is so far below the radar of importance that is just silly to even think about it. However, keep up the spending will ya....

Yes, agreed. The election result would have been different if people didn't vote the way they did. Sheesh.
