Why the muck raking? You neither:
1 - comment on the actual topic
2 - express a divergent opinion on the topic
3 - refrain from attacking a previous post or poster
You demonstrate precisely the problem you seem to think you are commenting about.
Now, do you have an opinion on the poll or the second ammendment to share? Or an opinion on the role of elected politicians on the practice of constitutionally protected rights, and how that could be abused potentially?
I believe background checks are reasonable - used to enforce the firearm ownership restrictions. More $$ should be put into getting more state receords into the system faster.
In contrast, I don't believe waiting periods do anything. They do nothing to to keep firearms away from those who should not have them. I'd prefer the BG not get a gun at all, rather than get the gun after a wait. For you, the couple week wait might have seemed longer if you required the firearms for anything urgent. However, if "a period" is actually, really, honestly needed to complete the background check......
I believe the Forum poll was sparked by the MN CCW bill passing their house yesterday. It is a "shall issue" bill where the sheriff must have a reason to oppose signing the CCW application. ND and many other states has these shall issue rules. But imagine if a sheriff were given discretion on whether to permit a handgun purchase or not - the potential for abuse is huge! The abuse of California's discretionary CCW approval is one example.
