way to go Doug MacKinlay!
Good move straw purchases are a bad thing
Way to go. If I owned a widget store I wouldn't sell one to someone that wanted to outlaw all widgets either. I bet Doug won't sell to the police in California and New York state either, and I'll never do business with any firearms company that does.
Now Kelly should sue the gun store for denying him of his constitutional rights. They do not get to discriminate from buyers who lawfully can purchase a gun. If he meets all applicable qualifications and has been denied on nothing other than a discriminatory act (hearsay, etc...,)he should be able to sue the gunstore owner. Get this rights thing works many different ways.
It should be easy to buy things legally. That is why all the gun control talk of late is disturbing.
So, does this mean that if someone goes to buy a gun that they must somehow prove what they are going to do with that gun?
It's kind of funny to see the gun-rights crowd cheering because a store refused to sell a gun to someone. I agree with you guys, our society needs more of that!
susukivs: For Kelley to sue would be the height of hypocrisy. After he and his organization and others are among those seeking to get these firearms banned. Also, read other versions of this news brief. Full-length stories explained how the shop owner was well within his rights to cancel the sale.
The store owner would be fine selling to someone who would use the rifle for crime?
So, does this mean that gun rights advocates now want background checks? And gun stores get to decide if what someone wants to use the gun for is acceptable to them or not? Weird. I thought they've been arguing that all law abiding citizens have a right to buy and own firearms, and it's nobody else's business what they do with them. Did it suddenly become illegal to turn a gun over to the police? Makes no sense.
