Wayne LaPierre, NRA Leader, Opposes Expanded Background Checks: via HuffPost http://huff.to/YEDpe6 This is because 40% of gun sales occur at “gun shows”, i.e. venues for criminals, felons, paranoid schizophrenics etc. to get weapons. Slow the sale of guns there and it will probably reduce sales of new weapons. Most guns sold in Arizona are trafficked. Most guns used in crimes in New York are trafficked from places like Arizona. The bottom line for gun makers is that the sale of guns to criminals, while illegal, is essential to their bottom line. The reason their arguments and agenda don’t make any sense is that their highest priority, the sale of guns to criminals, cannot even be mentioned publically. Their margins aren’t great, if buyers can’t traffic to criminals easily and untraceably, the gun makers are probably in the red. As for the general republican approaches of making it difficult for citizens to vote while making it easy for even felons to have guns, which should be harder to do? The present republican position is that it should be easier to kill other human beings with guns than to vote. Somebody explain to me how there is any scenario where that position makes any sense.
