You will have to forgive me if I can't respond to each point you made but I am on my phone so it is kind of a big pain. If I missed something let me know. The argument that you (in general) don't tell other hobbyist what regulations they have doesn't hold much water for me personally because guns is a unique case in the potential damage that they have to other people. The more I see the more it seems that although the potential is there for bad results from gun show sales, it is small. I really appreciate you taking the time to give a well thought response while addressing the actual content of the posts and not what is perceived in the person behind the computer.

I don't want to get stuck on the gun show sales thing too much for a few reasons. One is that, for me at least, I would have completely stopped debating the gun show thing had you posted this days ago. As I have said numerous times, I have just been trying to learn and hear the other side. Also, the more I see here and think about it the more I see other areas that could be talked about more productively.

I have posted a couple other ideas, which no I do not stand by or claim them to be necessary or even good answers. They are just points of discussion. I have talked about perhaps requiring training/safety courses since no one here seems opposed to those. Then perhaps having first time gun owners have a process where they earn the right to purchase more guns by buying one, then waiting a few weeks before they can another one and so on. Then once they earn that right and show they are responsible they can purchase all they want. I talked about it recently on this thread as well.
I was born with the right to buy as many guns as I desire~
