Oh, I read that differently. I took it as him saying if we required universal background checks to everyone before transferring possession, he wouldn't be able to loan it out to anyone because it would be a costly and time-consuming process, regardless of the person's record.Yeah, this. If he has reason to believe these people wouldn't pass a background check, he has reason to believe they'd misuse the weapon.
This one bugs me a lot, because it's not that hard a read. I mean, I'm all for gun control (although I've given up arguing with gun nuts on the internet), but this one was a stretch, and the constant outrage over everything on both sides is just so goddamned exhausting.Are we all just going to ignore that Dan Crenshaw looks like a Bond villain?
And while I don't like the guy, I don't believe he is being interpreted correctly. He's saying that universal background checks would mean he can't lend someone a handgun, because he would be required to do a background check first, not that he thinks they would fail it. I don't specifically know if universal background checks would actually require that because I have not looked into it, but that's what Dr Gun here is saying
Must be a MI thing. MI law states that if youActually, yes it is. I don't really know why you two think this is a crime.
Well, it does certainly vary from state to state. I didn't look up Michigan law, only Texas law.Must be a MI thing. MI law states that if you possess a handgun, you must also be the registered owner of that handgun.
Note I'm not saying "firearm," I'm saying "handgun."

Cool I guess. I mean, who doesn't like paying more for shipping on everything for no reason whatsoever.

Holy mackerel, California just banned private prisons? Fucking standing ovation for this.
I don't know if you guys knew, but I don't care for the practice of privatizing prisons.
So many things shouldn't be privatized. The thought of privatizing *profit* THEM should be anathema to any reasonable being with a soul. And when you look at the shitshows that Privatization has produced, and some folks keep pushing for it, they really don't have one * a soul*.You ain't the only one.
Just a reminder, this happened.So many things shouldn't be privatized. The thought of privatizing *profit* THEM should be anathema to any reasonable being with a soul.
