    Many of the points made about background registration is important., I have a feeling, if there was studies allowed, that we would find the free availability leads many with poor impulse control to grab a weapon when they get angry or depressed and use it to kill.

    Even being scared of someone, leads to impulse kills.

    Looking at all the murder suicides that we have now, I have to believe many of these would never happen if guns weren't right there or a a few minutes away in a gun store or a gun show.

    But that's just me. I have no data to prove this theory. Neither does anyone else. As MB suggested, it seems it will be far easier to plan for a passing laws that help us reach an end point sometime down the road.

    All the AWB2 threat is doing is causing gun sales to skyrocket just as they did in 1994, except this time there is the internet and the economy is much weaker even after the 90-91 recession. Sales are through the roof.

    It's pretty bad when just talking about the issue allows GOPer leaders to send out emails saying "they are coming for your guns - if you send $25.00 today, I'll make certain they won't get it". The threat of AWB2 is making people more money than one could imagine. Just the remote possibility. This is a wet dream for those who profit off of insanity.

    This issue really calls for small bills. Many of them.
