Hey stupid idiot.

People who conduct crime don't just go and buy a gun. Most guns involved in crime are guns that are illegally bought and which are unregistered.

As per usual, you are too stupid!

who is being supid you idiot.

Under federal law, private-party sellers are not required to perform background checks on buyers, record the sale, or ask for identification, whether at a gun show or other venue.

so how do criminal get guns again? what about those mass shooters who have no criminal records so there is nothing from stopping them buying 12 rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition.

you areally are just a waste of time.


Bull shit back ground checks are not required.

legal requirements in obtaining firearms in the USA vary from State to State and most require criminal background checks. You do have to be licensed and there are many regulations over the class of firearm you can get, how its stored at your premises and where you can keep your ammunition.

There are many laws in the USA.

You are peddling a particular narrative that is incorrect.

so what you are saying is if a man gets a licence to sell guns and goes around carrying them in his car, before he can sell to an individual the gun seller has to do a back gorund check before selling it.

you support nra right? here is an extract from what you posted.
<<The NRA opposed the background checks initially described by the Brady Act, as the NICS database was not functional yet. The organization actually sued to have the Brady Act changed, such that background checks were not required to be performed by local law enforcement. Though the change was in fact made to the Brady Act>>

were you born stupid or did you become stupid later.

No you need to have a license before you can buy any guns. And to get that licence, you would probably have to undergo a criminal history check in most States.

The seller can't do any background checks.

I support the US Bill of Rights and understand the fears of the average American that changing the 2nd amendment is a slippery slope towards totalitarianism. I also believe that it is difficult to change the Bill of Rights for good reason.

That is what makes America the greatest democracy on the planet.

this thinking defines america as a whole considering republicanism wins more elections than demorats.

this is what a republican senator claimed. The name to remember is steve king. what a mind.

Democrats are calling for a Republican congressman to resign after he defended abortion bans by saying that humankind might not exist but for rape or incest.

Republicans are correct to call for abortion bans.

It’s about time people took responsibility for their actions. There is a life forming in there and as far as I’m concerned I’m with Alabama on this one.

Vote 1 Republican for sanity.

Vote 1 Democrat for debauchery and stupidity, unisex toilets and a million genders and unicorns!

OK then. I stand corrected!

Vote 1 Republican for family values and sanity.

Vote 1 Democrat for Pedophilia, incest and rape, infanticide, a million genders, unisex toilets and unicorns.

Yes indeed, the disease is spreading and don’t think for a second that the Brits with their Liberal Democrats and Corbyn don’t subscribe to the same debauchery.

Lucky for Britain they are leaving the EU before it gets worse and they start thinking beastiality is the new norm along with horse meat!

now there is something new you learn every single day. here is a new one today, ho wmany are aware of this.

<<<Big businesses are faring better than ever under the Trump era tax law, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).

According to analysis from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), 60 Fortune 500 companies avoided paying all federal income tax in 2018 (with their total average effective tax rate being roughly -5%).

That’s more than three times the number of companies that avoided paying corporate taxes on average from 2008 to 2015. During that period, 18 companies managed to pay 0% or less (with their total average effective tax rate over 8 years being roughly -4%).

“There are a lot of breaks and loopholes that allow a company not to pay,” Steve Wamhoff, ITEP’s Director of Federal Tax Policy, told Yahoo Finance. “People, when they think of tax reform, think the government is going to fix the tax code and get rid of breaks and loopholes and get rid tax dodging. What we got at the end of 2017 was not that. It was the opposite of that. The Tax Cuts and jobs act left a lot of special breaks and loopholes in place and created some new ones.”

In 2017, the effective corporate tax rate was 13.6%. In 2018, corporations paid just 7% of their profits as federal taxes, according to data provided to Yahoo Finance by research firm Oxford Economics.

That’s the lowest effective tax rate since at least 1947.
‘These companies enjoyed a net corporate tax rebate’

Of all 60 companies paying taxes for 2018, the first full year under the TCJA, Amazon (AMZN) topped the list with the largest portion of income. In 2018, Amazon paid $0 in taxes on record profit of $11 billion. 2018 was the second year in a row that the e-commerce giant was able to avoid paying taxes.

Amazon is joined on the list by other big companies raking in big profits, including Delta Airlines (DAL), Chevron (CVX), Netflix (NFLX), and General Motors (GM).

“Instead of paying $16.4 billion in taxes at the 21 percent statutory corporate tax rate,” ITEP noted, “these companies enjoyed a net corporate tax rebate of $4.3 billion.”

Under TCJA, Trump’s new tax law cuts the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. And some big businesses that did end up paying tax in 2018 paid far less than that. In 2017, the effective corporate tax rate was 13.6%. In 2018, corporations paid just 7% of their profits as federal taxes, according to data provided to Yahoo Finance by research firm Oxford Economics.
