Military.com is owned by the same person that owns Monster.com.....he is also a supporter of Handgun Control Inc. and the Brady Campaign. As of last year I know this was accurate information....it may have been sold off since then....I dont know for sure.

I believe that monster.com is own by George Soroes (not sure of spelling). This guy is behind the big socialist push in this country.

Didn't vote on the poll, but from what I've read on the VT incident so far I think it seems like it was too easy for the wrong person to get a gun. The kid had past mental problems that didn't appear on his instant check but I feel should have. Bottom line he shouldn't have been able to get a gun period. Of course as I'm sure everyone will agree the scale of this tragedy would have been significantly decreased had CCW holders (if there were any) been allowed to have their weapons with them on campus without any legal limitations.

I don't want stupid laws but proper enforcement of the current laws with necessary information delivered to the correct authorities regarding background checks I believe would have helped some at least for our own Pro-2nd arguments. Right now it looks like the current system allowed a psycho to arm himself.

Is it too easy for a criminal to purchase a handgun? Yes, they can go to the nearest street corner and illegally buy a handgun off some gangbanger. Is it too easy for a law-abiding citizen to get a handgun? No, it's too hard.

His prof reported that he was a troubled youth judging by his writing (which I haven't read, so I can't judge by myself). She took the approach of burying her head in the sand ( which renmds of what Aussie bird, that will probably come extinct soon), rather than reporting it.

The poll doesn't ask if it's too easy for mental cases to get a gun, it asks "Is it too easy for the average citizen to purchase a handgun in America?"
