Well, the fact that school shootings are now attracting mentally unstable and openly armed rubberneckers is somewhat noteworthy.

This was the Chimp-in-Chief's "response" to the shooting, by the way:

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that school shootings will probably decrease between the months of June and August, yes.

Chicago "gun share program" art installation about how easy it is to get a gun in America.

I've never bought a gun, but I understand you need to sign more paperwork to buy a house or pseudoephedrine. Also, I wonder how soon it'll be until someone seriously considers a gun share program.

I believe that sharing guns as a business would require the same amount of background checking as buying guns, so it would be a non-starter. Some states allow gun sharing on a personal level with relative ease; in New York I believe it would involve a background check each time the guns changed who was in possession of the gun whether or not it's a business, assuming everyone is following the law. I can let someone shoot my rifles, but I would have to be there as the owner of the guns (not that anyone checks, or even can check with rifles)

If I was to buy a gun from a store like I always did there is actually 3 forms, a background check and a 24 hour wait period for a handgun in my state. I'd pass it all so it wouldn't be a hassle for me. On the other hand I could also go to a few of the people I know with... extra guns laying around... and pick up a random pistol for like 100 bucks and the promise not to shoot anyone and as long as they write out a receipt and keep a copy they're not legally liable for anything I do with said pistol. That is the problem I have with private owner sales. It's one of the reasons I got rid of all my firearms a few years ago. Its insanely easy to get a gun if you know people who own them.
