I am loath to admit that at this point neither I nor anyone else knows the specifics of the proposed legislation, however, I can only imagine that this law when enacted will create a tremendous traffic in black-market gun sales. I can see the background check for concealed carry, which should be open carry, but for recreation shotguns and rifles, it makes no sense. Enforcement of laws we have now would solve the problem. The use of a gun in the commission of a felony should carry an automatic 25 year prison sentence, no exceptions.

Are people that stupid whereby they believe that expanding background checks and registration of firearms by law-abiding citizens is going to prevent further gun violence??? Really???

If Manchin continues down this path of aligning himself with the likes of Chucky Schumer and supporting issues that are NOT popular back home in WV, he could have himself a real challenge in his next re-election campaign... assuming the Repubs can find a serious candidate to challenge him.

In answer to your first question DisplacedWVian, yes it should be obvious from the various postings by those trained to forget common sense and let he liberals in Washington and the media think for them; THEY ARE THAT STUPID.

!"Congratulations, Senator on being made a KEY senator in your first term."

It didn't take Joe long to be converted by the Beltway Bunch,

Joe, ask yourself, how will this play in Marion County, WV?

This country doesn't have the manpower or the prison space to enforce a feel-good background check law, if it passes.

After yesterday's school tragedy with the slasher, will we now be required to do a background check on mom before we give her a set of steak knives for Mother's Day?

Gun control for law abiding citizens is just like cutting the horns off of a Gazelle so that it doesn't injure the Lion that is attacking it.

1.8 Million violent crimes PER YEAR are PREVENTED by GUNS!!1

More GUNS---Less Crime! Fact!

More Thugs with Guns, fewer law abiding citizens with GUNS: MORE CRIME!

If this is a cure-all for crazies shooting up the area, can't we enact similar legislation to require background checks before hiring illegals, medical background check to receive disability payments from the government, financial background checks before receiving a loan to purchase a home.

But wait, don't we have those checks already; therefore no illegals, no disability fraud, no home foreclosures, and now no more crazies or criminals with guns.

LOL

coughy, I do get the point, background checks are nothing but feel-good legislation for dim-wits that think criminals will obey this "better" law.

Your song reference is most telling; you don't understand that every tool can be used for multiple purposes, depending upon the user's wishes.

I might claim that a blog site has no use other that to plump up one's feathers.

Neither statement is truly honest.

Coughy, "name another purpose for a 38 special than to shoot someone."

Oh maybe for a 110 pound woman to defend herself from her 280 pound abusive boyfriend.

Police take 20 minutes. 357 Magnum takes 1 second to travel 1400 feet!

Or maybe you find yourself the only white boi in downtown Detroit and the Hombboyz want to jack your new Benz. They aren't interested in a discussion on race relations. They ARE gonna pop a cap yo a&& in about 10 seconds if you DON'T get out of your car.

Or you wake up at night with Thug in ski mask with a 40 cal to your wife's head. He is GLAD you do not believe in self protection, Coughy.

We aren't talking Cond*ms here, goofass.
