This is the latest from Obama's propaganda e-mail: "Late last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced a bill to institute universal background checks on gun sales, strengthen gun trafficking laws, and make our schools safer."
I guess Harry doesn't know where criminals get their guns. Not from gun stores. If they really want to make schools safer they should give teachers the option to take training and carry concealed guns.
If I want I can get guns from many sources other than legal. In the sixties 800 M-1 rifles were stolen from a National Guard armory in Florida. They turned up in a warehouse in Mexicali, Mexico. The newsman that exposed it, Barney Balaban, was machine gunned down in Acapulco a few weeks later. I never saw any explanation of what was behind the theft of those weapons. Military weapons disappear regularly. We had two rifles "grow legs" and walk away from my basic company many years ago.
