    Your article does not support your statement. In fact, your article says, "half of all guns illegally acquired by young people involved straw buyers, either friends of the offenders or organized rings of gun traffickers."

    ILLEGALLY acquired!

    In fact, your article makes no mention of Legally purchased guns at all.

    Oddly enough, there have been studies published with the opposite findings, to the tune of 78%-98% purchased illegally.

    Funny how a militantly anti-gun newspaper can find "facts" to support the position they took without any at all.

    So if you infringe on my rights with arbitrary legislation over and over again it will trickel down to stop a criminal from getting my gun because I couldn't purchase it legally in the first place? Really?

    Yet we pro gunners are paranoid that our right will be taken away?

    Once again... Your attempts to link availability of guns to high crime crash and burn with the simple facts: violence is much lower in Texas, where guns are easy to obtain, than in Illinois, where they are impossible to neither buy nor carry legally.

    The net is full of people who lie. So why should l waste my time reading someone bias lies? And why do you allow yourself to believe it? I get it you believe it because it matches the way you think not because it is factual.
