I find the support for background checks humorous. In my youth, anyone could order any kind of firearm through the mail, with no "FFL". Every store, including Sears, had M1 carbines on display, on the sales floor unlocked, with ammo stacked nearby on the shelf...no supervision, and no problems, either.
An honest man could carry a handgun without a government permit.
Still waiting for my Flashback...I would like it now, please.
