Hoosiers are Gun Crazy

I know the Star online opinion polls are far from scientific, but 53 percent of those who answered the Star's poll do not believe Indiana's laws make it easier for criminals to have access to guns. For a good comparison of the difference betweeen gun laws in Indiana and our neighbor state of Illinois at the bottom of this link.

One of the main problems with Indiana is that background checks are not required at guns shows in Indiana and one does not need license for a private resale. Also, there are gun stores like Don's and Bradis, which are number 2 and 13 nationally in gun sales linked to crimes. What is the rationale of the 53 percent who said our laws do not contribute to criminal access to firearms? I would like to know.

I live in Texas. I'm supposed to feel safer because of our state gun laws.

At least, that's what the GOP lawmakers tell me. And they are a very trustworthy bunch.

In the words of old Don:

I'm not trying to make money, I just like to sell guns...to criminals...and nutjobs...like myself.
