    There is no "gun show loophole" but there is a concerted effort to make sure each and every legal gun is registered so a record can be referred to when it is time to confiscate the honest citizen's guns.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Bikenut,

    I think you are preaching to the choir here. You need to take the discussion to the Facebook site. They are the ones who need the help.

    There needs to be a facebook group called "Close the Brady Loophole".

    How is it that a hate group like the Bradies are tax exempt? I say we need to close their "tax exempt loophole".

    In North Carolina, I appreciate the fact that I can buy any gun in a private deal, at a Gunshow or else where. For handguns, all you need is a purchase permit or a CCW and long guns, well, it's like selling a baseball card. That's my my right and I don't want to let it go.

    You might want to consider the requirement of "purchase permit" as an infringement on your RKBA.

    How is this enforced at a private sale? What are the requirements to get one?
    A law-abiding citizen should be able to carry his personal protection firearm anywhere that an armed criminal might go.

    I do agree with you. I am just pointing out how it is done in NC.

    As far as how it is enforced:

    First off, in North Carolina, if you have a concealed carry permit, you do not need a handgun purchase permit for any handgun purchases in North Carolina, so as long you have your permit to present. Otherwise, you have to get the $5 purchase permits which involve a criminal background check (normally 5 days). Once received, any handgun you buy from a dealer or through a private means, must be presented to the seller. The seller must retain the purchase permit forever. Failure of a buyer to present a valid purchase permit OR the failure of the seller to take and retain a permit could mean being charged with a misdemeanor.


    Here is a link for my county Sheriff's Office information: http://www.guilfordsheriff.com/content/view/75/194/

    Or

    http://www.charmeck.org/Departments/...un+Permits.htm

    You'll also see that we can apply for permits to purchase crossbows and machine guns.

    All that is required for a private sale in Nv. is for the seller to have the gun, and for the buyer to be eligible to possess a firearm, be aNv. resident,and be able to reach a deal with the seller.

    You hand them the money, they hand you the gun. Easy.:celebrate

    How about about a1000 of us join and just do one post per week each, that would be fun. I do not think we would actually get anywhere with people that think along the lines of if we just pass one more law things will get better.
    Throw me to the wolves and I will come back leading the pack.

    If you have a pro-gun message, like there is not a loop hole, your post will get deleted. I was one of the folks that just joined that group. I also can no longer "post" comments there, lol.

    Just another fraud blog spreading their lies. 2200 members? Hardly major players.

    The politicians are getting broiled over this socialized medicine issue. I doubt if even the likes of chucky schumer are tuning in to this facebook blog.

    Has anyone heard of blog called "Gun Guys"? This clubhouse for stooges can't even be honest regarding their namesake. They hope to attract the firearm owners community then spread their anti-gun routine to the duped audience.

    If enough people report the group it can be delated for being politically incorrect.

    Each page has a report feature near the left bottom of the page. Should you exchange emails and one gets nasty you can report the email as well.

    You just can't report something for nothing.

    I tried to make a reasonable remark relating to the unintended consequences of allowing the gov't to affect private sales for the first time in the history of the U.S. I was too long and couldn't be posted, so I changed it to just "**** YOU"

    It took 2.5seconds to be removed.
