How can we enforce existing gun laws when law enforcement's hands are tied? Why are we ok with the NRA (and the GOP) blocking our attempts to control illegal fire arms? Could it be they aren't looking out for gun owners, but rather manufactures and dealers?

And why isn't this more talked about?

The distinction people are trying to make is that there isn't such a thing as an illegal firearm. There is such a thing as a person illegally owning a firearm. There is also such a thing as a person committing an illegal act with a firearm. The person makes it illegal, not the firearm.

At least that's my understanding.

Hands tied? I guess no one told Bloomberg and Rahm.

the fact that you think illegal guns exist tells me you know nothing about guns or firearm laws

There is no such thing as an illegal gun

Feel free to "lol" at us. The educated, rational gun owners that possess intelligence, facts and knowledge in regards to firearms and law are ROFL'ing at people like you.

gun "regulation" reform that needs to happen is REPEALING about 90% of the existing firearm laws

I was waiting for you to come in here and spout off **** about how the stolen/trafficked firearms are somehow legal. Obviously didn't watch the video, and of course frothing at the mouth over laws that don't exist.

How are law enforcement's hands tied? People get arrested for gun crimes all the time.

And what, praytell, is an illegal firearm?

Could it be you're getting your news from a comedian?

Again, you didn't watch the video - a vast majority of the illegal firearms (yes) that are trafficked come from a handfull of dealers, and dealers can't be inspected more than once a year, nor are they required to keep a log of their inventory. Also, they are not required to cooperate with authorities? If this is true, how to you think we can enforce existing laws on the books with those restrictions? Did you catch the part where they mentioned there is no current director of the ATF, and there hasn't been on for 7 years? Ridiculous.

I watched the video. It was a liberal Jon Stewart rant that brought up nothing new.

What "handful" of dealers is this providing all the "illegal" firearms? Who says dealers can't be inspected more than once a year? You think business owners don't keep inventories? Did you take "how to run a business 101" pre-requisites? Part of owning a business is knowing what's in stock.

In what way are business owners not required to cooperate with authorities when it comes to keeping purchase records?

Oh no! No BATFE director??? Because he has to be Senate confirmed? If this were a priority, why weren't the Democrats confirming a director while they've controlled the Senate for the majority of the time the post has been empty? Who's been nominated for the post in the past 6 years? Who's been president for 4 of those 6 years the post has been empty?

Why is this just being mentioned now? Oh yeah, that's right, we can have a justifiable emotional reaction.
