Checks For Gun Buyers

American Voicespatriotism ISSUE 34•20 Dec 16, 1998

Earlier this month, a new system of instant FBI background checks on gun buyers went into effect. The system, which takes the place of a five-day waiting period, is being challenged in court by the NRA as an invasion of privacy. What do you think?

  • “I think the new instant checks are great. Last March, I had to wait almost an entire week before I could open fire on that busload of kids.”

    Dave Roof –
    Groundskeeper

  • “I'm in favor of a waiting period. Waiting just makes it all the more special when you finally give the bitch what she's got coming.”

    Keith Krausse –
    Salesman

  • “As long as they don't start requiring background checks for meat-cleaver purchases, I should be fine.”

    Benjamin Chavarria –
    Custodian

  • “God, guts and guns are what made America great. Oh, God—I just shot myself in the gut with my gun!

    Jordan Stock –
    Commercial Pilot

  • “They should make gun buyers sign a waiver that says, 'I promise only to use this gun on bunnies.'”

    Anne Hershberger –
    Systems Analyst

  • “I find that shooting people is an excellent alternative to letting them run a background check on me.”

    Ellen Gosger –
    Cab Driver
