It's our native language. Speak and write it well, even in e-mails and blogs. This is even more important if you have the title "News Editor."
Actually they can't slow the sales significantly because the background check is done on-line or by phone while the potential buyer is in the firearms store. The people who can and do slow things significantly are the state governments who overlay another round of paperwork and checks on buyers of handguns. Their state police do the checks and the wait can be from a few days to a few weeks to a few months, depending on the volume. They buyer pays up front after getting approval from the FBI, then waits, and waits, and waits.
Those police were given rules of engagement by the Democrat overlords. Apparently they were more concerned about further inciting of their voting base than they were about enforcing the law.
Two kinds of people attempt to buy firearms legally - law-abiding people who are eligible under the law and stupid people who are not eligible. Most of the stupid people don't even get to finish the paperwork and have the FBI do the background check, because the merchant stops the process as soon as he sees a problem. The number of disapproved applications does little or nothing to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Even the stupid people who break the law by lying on the application are seldom prosecuted. The whole process is a sham and a federal jobs program that accomplishes nothing except to document the specific firearms bought and who owns them. Of course we know the feds aren't allowed to keep this information on file, so it's not like they can come to your door and confiscate your legal firearms. Meanwhile illegal firearms owners have nothing to fear.

10 Things to Know for Today

Could it be because our "best and brightest" President and Secretary of State called it a foreign policy victory when they gave Iran 7 months more to develop a nuclear weapon and got nothing in return?
Apparently the man who died was shot to death and Facebook posts strongly suggest he was a gang member and a close associate of the man who was with Michael Brown during and after the strong arm robbery. You remember him, don't you? He's the one the media loved because he lied about Brown being shot in the back while he had his hands up.
Lead may turn out to be more precious than gold and silver.
And isn't it ironic that the left would have no one to extort financially and psychologically if it weren't for the system they hate?
We are definitely living in a bizarre world. People are condemning the police for "letting Ferguson burn" but no one is condemning the people who set the fires. Rewinding the tape, where might we be today if Michael Brown's parents had taught him not to steal and not to attack a cop? He seems to have had a living mother, father, and step father although all have different surnames. The extended family also sounds more than a little dysfunctional.
Once again a Democrat slips up and tells the truth. She thinks all Hispanics are illegals or that only illegals work in hotels.
