    What?
    in relation to the recenty killing of a NY cop. the mayor wanted stricter gun laws claiming that it's as simple as to go to another state, buy 30 guns and sell it illegally or bring it back to your home state and do crime.

    i'm like wtf? pls don't tell me that's how it works. are these guys stupid?

    Well anytime you purchase more than 1 handgun in a week from a dealer he has to fill out a form and mail it to the atf and your state police. I promise that a guy buying 30 hi-points will be getting a visit from a nice man in a suit. Now you could go to 30 dealers I guess.....

    I imagine the vast majority of guns criminals use are stolen.

    Ask anyone in jail for a violent crime. Most are stolen and sold illegally out of a dealership. In more lax states, i still dont think you can buy that many guns, or even a number near that high.

    You can also skip the dealer entirely and buy from an individual...legally.

    I live in NY it was a bitch to get my license several month wait few hundred dollars in fee's. If I wanted to get an illegal gun I can be in brooklyn in 20 with illegal piece in my hands. Stricter gun control laws just make it harder for law abiding citizens. Look at the UK they banned guns there but gun crime hasn't gone down.

    in LA I could just make a phone call and within 10 minutes someone would have dropped one off at my door. They come from robberies, crooked gunshop owners and from gun running coming up from mexico.

    Aren't guns like the 2nd most illegally imported item right behind drugs? Heard something along those lines.

    I think it's pretty easy to get an illegal handgun or other... I think a lot of them on the street are brought from out of the country (most probably associated with the drug trade) and stolen.

    My cousin got arrested for buying a handgun behind a gas station when he was a minor :o

    Alot of ones on the street are stolen, not sure how high up illegally imported guns are, I remember several years back they found a container load of Norinco AK's at some harbour around LA that were supposedly headed for gangs.

    I have norinco 56s brought in in the 80's its pretty solid, much better fit and finish then any of the romanian or postban maadi guns, definently not as nice as hungarian or bulgarian. Norinco handguns are junk but there AK's aint bad
