Yeah, so many mass shootings back then. Just give me a minute or so to reload...

Of course we have similar policies in place in the UK.   A lot of our supermarkets will not sell eggs or flour to teenagers at Halloween!

Why, is it the only place that sells?   Good to see some social responsibility.

As for background checks, criminals apparently have no problem getting weapons without them.

You can be perfectly sane and have high morals and obtain a gun or a lot of guns.

Someday something happens and you snap and shoot some one,now you are a criminal.

You see how this works?

"he should have never bought a fast bike"

"she should never have gone out with him"

"we should never have elected him"

and so on.

The line that criminals always have access to guns is very old and worn out.

It is time people start behaving like civilized beings.

No, I don't see how this works. But I think I see how 'straw man arguments' [wiki link] work.

 

Do you want all people to 'start behaving like civilized beings'? Good Luck with that!

Should never let one's stocks get below a couple thousand rounds...never know when it will hit the fan and your country needs you. 

Serious gun owners load their own.

LOL. IN NZ loads of people have ( or had ) weapons and never use them on other people. Mass shootings in NZ are very rare.

I used to own several and never fired them in anger or threatened anyone with them.

As a trump supporter surely you regard running as a perfectly acceptable answer if your country should need you?

One doesn't have to imagine. Have you ever heard of Chicago, Il, USA?

 Is that anywhere near Buriram?

Ever heard of 'Google Maps' (I even stated Chicago's country, just in case)? BTW, be careful where you Buriram. I'd hate to hear of anything untoward happening to it. :stoner:

Then the problem seems to be how enforce the gun laws to prevent criminals from buying guns.

I think a lot of the gun transactions are from other criminals...but there must be a good number using stolen ID.  And of course criminals steal guns...in robberies and such.  When I was a kid...in Stralia, was not unusual to see guys with a rifle slung over their back bicycling out to hunt rabbits.  Dad had a gun rack in the old (not then!) FJ ute with a .22 Brno almost permanently in place.  Sometimes his .303.  For crow control in lambing season he had a .222 Winchester Model 70.  He would cycle out to the lambing paddock before sun-up with a hide...bit like the material used in a Ghillie suit but throw over like a blanket.  He would remain in the one place all day, some days, and on others until the crows departed!  Still lost some lambs.  The crows favourite meal was to pick out the young lambs eyes...if he wasn't there.

That's one way to do it...but sometimes it's not enough...like in 1776 and 1861. It's best to be ready for all contingencies. You know what one gun owner said to another:

 

"I'm down to a thousand rounds..."

 

"You're running low."
