Obviously there are some idiots that would never be able to figure it out.You said it was.I didn't consider that. Why should I bother though. You would just nit pick it, and claim it's not accurate. My point is that it's not that hard to do. I'm confident I have proven that.Ok. You let me know how that works out for you.I'm just waiting for you to admit you want ARs banned. I mean, it's not like nobody doesn't know it already.yet you keep coming back to whine.No, you haven't. You discarded it because it's not the answer YOU'VE dictated are correct.But I have read all that crap, and did consider it. multiple times. If that's all he's got, repetition won't make it any more true.Yeah, no point. It's not like you'd give any consideration to other points of view.Disagree all you want. Don't expect me to read pages of the same shit you posted yesterday, the day before that, and the day before that.Another little bitch-fit that people are allowed to disagree with you.That's exactly what I consider the reams of the same cut and past propaganda the previous poster constantly supplies to be. Chickenshit.Chickenshit.I will be happy to read your entire remark as soon as you post something other than your handful of memorized bumper sticker statements and your massive store of cut and paste crap.Yes, lots of new guns are being sold. Lots of used guns being sold too. No obligation for a used seller to even care if the purchaser is a felon, or otherwise not legal to even be near a gun. You got the money, you get the gun. Don't tell me bad guys only steal guns or have a straw buyer. No need to steal or have a straw buyer, when they can buy them themselves.A large majority of Americans want universal background checks,.
The ATF is currently approving upwards of 3 million Background Checks for new firearms purchases a month ...
And has been for quite some time ... They know what we have.
There are more firearms than people in the United States at this point.
It seems as though a lot of armed American Citizens also want to exercise their Constitutionally Protected Rights.
Bad guys use straw buyers.....they do not use private sellers because they are afraid they are ATF, or the police.....if you did some basic research you would know this.....they use friends and family with clean records to buy the guns.....prosecutors don't want to prosecute baby momma's and grandmothers, the typical gang straw buyer because juries don't like to convict these women because they often claim the gang threatens them if they don't buy the guns.....
America Should Be Prosecuting Straw Purchasers, Not Gun Dealers | National Review
Wisconsin isn’t alone in its nonchalance. California normally treats straw purchases as misdemeanors or minor infractions. Even as the people of Baltimore suffer horrific levels of violence, Maryland classifies the crime as a misdemeanor, too. Straw buying is a felony in progressive Connecticut, albeit one in the second-least-serious order of felonies. It is classified as a serious crime in Illinois (Class 2 felony), but police rarely (meaning “almost never”) go after the nephews and girlfriends with clean records who provide Chicago’s diverse and sundry gangsters with their weapons. In Delaware, it’s a Class F felony, like forging a check. In Oregon, it’s a misdemeanor.
I visited Chicago a few years back to write about the city’s gang-driven murder problem, and a retired police official told me that the nature of the people making straw purchases — young relatives, girlfriends who may or may not have been facing the threat of physical violence, grandmothers, etc. — made prosecuting those cases unattractive.
In most of those cases, the authorities emphatically should put the straw purchasers in prison for as long as possible. Throw a few gangsters’ grandmothers behind bars for 20 years and see if that gets anybody’s attention. In the case of the young women suborned into breaking the law, that should be just another charge to put on the main offender.

Convicted Murderers Admit: Gun Laws Are a Joke
To gain insight into why and how, one local news station decided to go right to the source of the problem.
To get our data, we sent surveys to every killer who used a gun to murder someone in Harris County since 2014. We wanted to know how they got their gun, what they paid, and how often, if ever, they went through a background check.
The information from the inmates tells a story most of us already know:
- 90 percent of those surveyed received their gun on the black market. They either traded goods for the firearm or a friend gave them the gun.
- 63 percent of the guns were stolen and the majority of them were given to the perpetrator for free.
- 90 percent of the surveyors weren’t eligible to legally buy a gun because of past criminal convictions.
- 100 percent of the surveyors concealed carry despite failing to have a CCW permit.
In Texas, a felon in possession of a firearm can serve 2 to 1- years in prison.
But in Harris County, the average jail sentence for the offense is 3-and-a-half months.
It should be no surprise that criminals are buying guns on the unregulated market.
But when asked, the convicted killers abc13 interviewed were all well aware of the gun laws.
Many were previously convicted and knew they wouldn’t pass federally mandated background checks.
Others suggested they would never put a family member in a position to buy a gun for them since the penalty for that so-called ‘straw purchase’ is severe.
Despite gun control laws that focus on expanded background checks and banning “assault weapons,” the survey results prove neither one of would have prevented these murderers from committing their crime.
When asked what can be done to keep guns off the streets, each criminal had different views.
“I feel guns is not the problem. People just need to respect each other, and stop been [sic] disrespectfully [sic]. Youngster in the hood need to listen when older people tellin them something. Guns WILL always be in the streets of H-town! Sorry to say that,” said 44-year-old Cedric Jones.

Still waiting for you to show your skills.
Hop to it boy! Make one of those things double sized. Show YOUR work.
You saying it is not proof. Except to gullible morons like yourself.
Still waiting. You said it was easy.
Show your work or admit that you can't do it, and it's not easy.
Just so you know your continued inability to make even an oversize piece proves you are wrong.
It's NOT an easy part to make.
Thank you for so eloquently proving our point.
