    In Bowling for Columbine Michael Moore appears to get a free gun merely by walking in and opening up a bank account, that seems to contradict the 2-8 week waiting period.

    "So where was his illegal gun? He obviously would have tried to get one if he spent $1100 on a crossbow.
    He had the money and the motivation.

    This is where the 'criminals will get illegal guns' argument falls down. "

    I'm not sure i agree entirely with this, a random teenager will find it extremely difficult to get hold of a gun in a country with strict gun laws, but someone who has been in and around crime for years, i don't really think you are going to be able to stop them getting a gun if they set their heart on it. Even in countries like the UK and Autralia there is still 'some' gun crime (I know, i was held up at gun point). This doesn't validate their arguments of-course because it's patently obvious that the percentage of criminals carrying fire arms is vastly smaller in countries with stricter gun laws.

    >>that seems to contradict the 2-8 week waiting period.
    yeah, i dont know about this one, the only thing i can think of is maybe he owned a few guns already?

    >>You know it is a court don't you......so it does.
    keep reading that constitution, the supreme court interprets what the constitution means

    >> I checked for gun saftey under your link. Strange, all states gun safety laws were under construction -> no data. Obviously very important.

    thats interesting, i just pulled up gun laws in like 4 states(just to test) so um......yeah, if you need help navigating the page, give me a PM i'll point ya around

    he'res another one that isnt mysteriously broken....well, shouldnt be

    True. I was trying to point out that any person can't go out and get an illegal gun (which is a major argument for gun laws).

    In short it stops the 'crime of passion' not the recidivists.

    >>i just pulled up gun laws in like 4 states(just to test) so um

    No.......read my post

    >>states gun safety laws <<

    Try any states SAFETY laws link and you see this page.
    Want me to point you to an optometrists page?
    Or is it the semantics you are having trouble with?

    anyway how can you take a site seriously that hosts 'the Cartridge family'

    California -> 10 waiting period unless a gun dealer to purchase a concealable gun. No waiting period otherwise.

    $500 fine for possessing an unregistered assualt weapon.

    New York No waiting period.

    And this is why I sleep with a sword next to my bed. It is not illegal for me to carry and can be used to great effect in my capable hands. I've had cops drive by without a word while I'm out practicing in my front yard. And I live in a small town with very bored cops.

    So hell is a small town? Excellent, no room for me. I wonder where I'll end up.
