OT: There are more gun shops in the US than Starbucks, McDonald's and supermarkets put together

And if *you* had had one, he probably would have left you alone. In the US, we see upwards of a million defensive uses of firearms every year, the overwhelming majority of which involve no shots fired at all. Simply showing a potential attacker that you are armed is sufficient, most times, to deter any attack.

They are just talking about how many Federal Firearms Licenses there are and lots of them do not actually have a store or even sell guns. There are a total of 15 types of license including things like pawn shops and guys who reload ammo. When I was shooting a lot of skeet I knew guys who had the "ammo" license, just so they could get wholesale prices on components. In spite of all of the hype and lies, it is already illegal to sell a gun across state lines, internet or mail order without going through a dealer so there are dealers who do nothing but receive shipped guns and do the paperwork, background check etc. This might be done from home.

It is one of the East Coast states, but there are people who own building on the state line who make tons of money renting out one room on an hourly basis to out of state gun dealers to come, meet their client, finish the paperwork, deliver the firearm and then boogie back home. I thought that was pretty cool.

The Kittery Trading Post in Maine did that. They had an unoccupied storefront across the river in Portsmouth NH. If you were a NH resident and purchased a handgun, a gopher would meet you over there with the paperwork and firearm, unlock the store, which was vacant except for a desk and chairs, make the transfer, then you'd each go on your way.
I once purchased some magazines from a California company. The shipment arrived in two parts; the 10 round mags were shipped from LA, the 13 round version from Las Vegas. Apparently they have a Nevada extension to handle accessories that are illegal in CA.

A gun in the hands of an idiot is less dangerous than a statistic in the hands of a journalist.

Hi Bod,
You are a frightening man. Your idea of protecting the sheep is to make it easier for the wolves to kill the sheep.
So tell me, why is their more violent crime in our favorite socialist toilet with a near total prohibition on guns than there is in America? Good guys can shoot back perhaps?
Answer: the bad guys will always have access to contraband no matter what the law says.
So lets all make it easier for the bad buys to kill the innocent. Great idea.
Oh and lets out law only the weapons that can be used for insurrection. So we can sit in tyranny and do nothing about it. Maybe the Americans will comes and shed the children's blood ** AGAIN *** and save us?

My condolences on your lawmaker being murdered.
