If you want to give me a list of questions, I'd be happy to answer. I thought I gave an honest answer that I don't know the best way to enforce it. The first thing that would have to happen would be to get a law on the books. If you sell a gun to someone without a background check, you're arrested. Not sure if that's what you want to hear, but that's what happens if you sell a drug without a prescription. Doctors and Lawyers risk losing their licences for certain actions. Maybe the gun dealer loses his right to sell guns. I'm not claiming to be a constitutional expert by any means and I'm not trying to lay out what the law of the should be, I just think there are things that can be done to make my children a little bit safer.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
