[QUOTE=c3shooter;1211064]Jim- what I have seen happening with firearms since 1968 should not be called a compromise.

The dictionary definition of "compromise": A settlement of differences in which each side makes concessions.

Sorry- but I damn sure do not see the other side making any concessions. It is a bite here, a nibble there, a little more there, ad infinitum.

But what the hell- it's just a little chain. I'm sure we'll hardly feel it.

Thank you for the correction!!!
I have been telling people not to get caught up in 'their' terminology and I did it myself!!!

to me a compromise is when a mutual agreement is made that is beneficial to both parties.

at what point have the law abiding gun owner gotten any benefits from any of the compromises made to date? best recollection on my part, none!

Wow. And you vote? Just, wow.
On the first point, are you sure that I am not a criminal, or are you a criminal, or do you read random criminal minds as a hobby? It wasn't that I was really "worried about getting caught", since I could almost-legitimately claim to have purchased the stolen firearm without any knowledge of its theft status, since the database that already exists listing firearms reported as stolen is not available to private citizens, only LEO's and supposedly only as part of "active investigations". I have emailed the state AG and BATF on this issue, as well as speaking with the local police on how I could check a firearm's status; I was disappointed with the answers. I don't see me getting in any real legal trouble over a second-hand stolen firearm, so long as I can't be connected to its theft, BUT I would lose the firearm and the money spent on it with little recourse (legal recourse anyway). It would be like renting a firearm until such time as an LEO encountered it.

So, as a person who has at least been offered and drooled over a stolen firearm, I assure you that its value was lessened in my eyes as a consumer by its status as stolen and probably reported stolen.

For the thieves (who were actually quite thick in this case), the theft of the items was about profit. I saw the firearm at a buddy's house who was trying to find them a spare magazine to make the item more saleable, BECAUSE they were having trouble selling it at a decent price that would make their theft worth their time.

Not a felon, so yes voting is always an option.

If the Kahr had been a PM9 or CW9 instead of a PM40, I would've probably given them the $100 for it, but I would've considered it "a rental".
