TX Gal, There is a law against a felon filling out an application to buy a gun. I think something like 4 were arrested and or convicted last year out of thousands of tries. These guys go into a gun store or gun show, try to buy a gun, get turned down because they are a felon, then just go down the street or to a different table and try again. No arrest no nothing.

Difficulty in getting change in our country is an ongoing source of frustration. Particularly when we have huge problems facing us as we do today.

But the founders knew what they were doing setting up the checks and balances of our constitutional republic. The delicate arrangement we call freedom should never submit with ease to a charismatic demagogue or to an emotion filled crisis.

The current push for gun control is case and point. It is at a time like this that we should be grateful that changing our laws is hard to do.

Every normal and decent American wants to...
