Why should this process be a PITA?  IMO I should be able to pick up a Glock as an impulse buy, right next to the gum at checkout, at Wal-Mart.

I'm not saying it should be a PITA, just that it's super easy and fast and I don't believe that backround check is legit.  I mean the questions are multiple choice.

Should the questions be essay or something?  :sdeek:

It's against the law to lie on those things, FWIW.

I think essay questions would be an excellent place to start. Then the answers could be sent to a psychiatrist for evaluation, and if everything checks out, that person could come pick up his/her gun.

No, I like Emo's idea better where we just give a gun to whoever wants one and then find out later if there are responsible.

And just to make sure the system isn't abused and remains totally impartial, we should get the IRS involved somehow.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

I'm not for shooting someone but is he just supposed to throw rocks at them or something while they mess his crap up?

So they weren't guilty, it was just some phantom? Like I said, don't shoot them but just call the cops and deal with it?

I'd probably turn to my wife (in curlers and robe waiting pensively in the hallway) and say something like, "Well honey, at least they didn't take the newspaper" and then go to sleep.

I would ask 3 essay questions:

1. If you were a bullet, what type of bullet would you be, and why?

2. What is your favorite domestic light beer? What makes it stand apart from the rest?

3. What would you say is the coolest-looking gun on the market? If this is not the gun you are purchasing, why not?

What is the purpose for purchasing this firearm?

Do you like cats and/or dogs and why?

Are you having a good day?

Those are good questions, too. Especially the cats/dogs one. They would probably need to mix the questions up so people wouldn't be able to cheat as easily.

Getting my car sprayed by large caliber ammunition helped me stop vandalizing back in the day.  This guy is really just providing a community service.
