In a number of North African and Middle Eastern countries, there are open air markets where kindly peace loving locals can purchase almost any type of weapon they want, given they have enough cash in their pocket. And American guns shows are not much different, save the scarcity of rocket launchers.

You gun nuts always gibber on and on with your "guns don't kill people blah blah...." and prattle about how government is not enforcing your version of the laws against the bad guys - and yet you won't get behind anything that makes it easier for police, DEA, rangers, the FBI, etc. You know, like making sure drug dealers, gang bangers, and the mentally unhinged have substantial roadblocks in their way to the purchase of a firearm. Especially automatic - or easily convertible - weapons, and armor piercing munitions. No, that would be violating your deranged perception of the 2nd amendment.

It's a happy day, and the Nordykes can kiss my @$$.
