Just read your story at http://www.gunguys.com/?p=1841
about the Kent Denny's shooting, and I found one thing you said to be quite objectionable:
"Or it could have come from a gun show, where paperwork on gun sales are not required."
That is absolutely not true. You write frequently on gun issues (duh!), so how can you be unaware of the _true_ situation regarding gun shows in Washington State, namely:
Laws regarding background checks at gun shows are EXACTLY the same as they are anywhere else--anyone in the business of selling firearms MUST perform a background check, just the same as if they were doing the sale in their regular place of business, whereas a private citizen does NOT need to do a background check NOR to carry out the transfer via a dealer, no differently than if they were conducting the sale at home or any other place.
If you want to advocate that state laws should be changed so that all private sales must go through a dealer, go ahead and do so, but please don't muddy the waters by claiming that gun shows are some kind of background-check-free zone! -Kirk
