So, should a 14 YO be able to buy beer, too, with a parents permission?
OK, I will bite on this. Tell me more about this 14 year old who wants a beer.
Is he driving anything after, will he be doing anything dangerous, is he gonna drink till he gets wasted?
Is he responsible, has he been taught right and wrong and acted as he's been taught, has he proven to be trustworthy?
Is his parent responsible enough to watch the amount his kid drinks and limit it if judgement of the kid turns bad?
Do you think not giving a 14 year old a beer that wants one will stop him from getting that beer and having it and 6 others while not under the watchful eye of Mom and Dad? So I'm guessing you know my answer, all things being equal, they just arent. Each "Kid" and each "Parent" must be evaluated on their own merits, each situation is different.

That out of the way, now just tell me how a background check would of stopped these shootings?
The slime bag at the navy ship yard bought his shotgun legally and had a background check which he passed.
The school shooter's mother bought the guns he used legally that he used, She passed a background check.
The movie shooter passed a background check and walked away with his guns.
The VT shooter bought his guns and a BG was done on him and he passed.
Only one of the guns the VT shooter used was bought at a gun show and it is not clear if he had a BC or not on that one.
A BC is a feel good law that really has not stopped any shootings, because when laws are passed there and many who will go around laws or simply ignore them.
Would a BC of stopped the Boston bomber?
Would a BC of stopped Timothy McVeigh?
Would a BC of stopped the Time Squair Bomber?
Would a BC of stopped Eric Robert Rudolph
Would a BC of stopped Theodore "Ted" Kaczynski
Would a BC of stopped Wade Michael Page, (He had a BC and passed it)
Maybe if we pass a law requiring a BC for bombers we might stop some of the violence.
Background checks have been in place sense the brady bill passed and most people pass the BC. If nothing is recorded to flag someone they pass.
This deserves about 10 likes and a few high fives! That which they seek to remove from the choices will not prevent tragedies. They are called that for a reason.
: a very bad event that causes great sadness and often involves someone's death
: a very sad, unfortunate, or upsetting situation : something that causes strong feelings of sadness or regret
: a play, movie, etc., that is serious and has a sad ending (such as the death of the main character)
1,000 violent crimes happen in our nation every single day that include very few "Gun Crimes", Less than 1% if you include child and animal abuse, Assault, Rape and all forms of thuggery. They wish to limit "Violence committed with firearms"
but that is a pretty tiny target that will encumber literally a hundred million citizens that pose no deadly threat to nobody ever.
At the same moment they are wasting their time and spending hundreds of our $$$Billions$$$$ to limit "Tragedies that kill dozens"
Gangs bangers stabbed and beat 100
of their rivals with baseball bats,
Druglords and their missives killed hundreds
more with their unregulated and untaxed products,
Prostitutes living off the underbelly of society with the same tax and regulatory status as drug dealers gave 1000
clients aids and were beaten if they didnt hand over all the money after they did their job,
Terrorists killed hundreds more with items not covered in any gun laws proposed,
of our sons and daughters are being sold as sex slaves in foreign lands
A hundred thousand
minority and non babies will be tossed in recycling containers.
In the last 10 years, we willingly sent 100,000
of our young Men and Women to foreign lands to have thousands
of them sent back in boxes and 50,000
of them have injuries that will never heal!
So lets see if we can prevent crazy and evil people from committing crimes against 10's of people at the same damn time half a million citizens of this country are being violently attacked, injured and murdered that have nothing to do with guns!
