Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- It is time for Universal Background Checks. Don’t be unreasonable you say? Compromise you say?

This is simple…I’d be open to compromise on the idea posted above but my demands would never be met by ‘the other side.

I will give into this Universal Background Check just as described and in exchange I want the following:

  • All firearms laws are wiped (No FFL anyone can now own any weapon.)
  • National Carry with no exceptions on locations (carry on campus, in a bar, on a plane, in a court house, you get the point)
  • Exemption to any EPA/Regulatory laws that would impact firearms and the safe practice of shooting
  • No Capacity limitations or mechanical limitation of any kind (smart gun, trigger locks, ‘10’ round magic number, etc)
  • Equal mandatory Firearms training matching any public school’s Sex Education and Driver’s Education programs. Equal amounts of time and funding dedicated to each of the subjects.
  • A full acknowledgement that the 2nd amendment protects an individual’s right to own, transport, carry and use in the case of self defense with National Home Castle and Stand Your Ground verbiage

And finally…any laws (including the one proposed in this thread) will apply equally to all rights for all Americans (no congressional, LEO or friend of Mr. Big Shot exemptions). So National Voter ID with background check, fingerprinting, mental competency and fees, same for the desire to Speak Freely, etc.

Come back when you are on board with the above. If not, stop using the term ‘compromise’ because you obviously have no idea what that word means. While you are at it you might want to look up the term infringed.

“There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction…In any compromise between food and poison; it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.” — Ayn Rand

Oh, you mean like “…shall not be infringed”? What a concept! Duh!!!


Write a database that cannot be used to save queries, publish and promote the call in phone number and setup free internet access, allow access to anyone without charge. Then maybe we can talk about UBCs. Of course the NSA would be making their own Pre-Confiscation List so that would be the first topic of conversation.

Any human intent on killing other humans does not need a background check to steal a firearm and carry out that deed .


Compromise is a political illusion. When’s the last time a Democrat, from Obama on down, compromised on anything of importance?

There are NO democratic communist DEMONRATS that you can trust with a ” COMPROMISE ” . Every compromise you make with them just gives them another foot in the door . Only when their TOTAL agenda is realized will they truly shut up and set down .


I like it! I’m all for it! Especially the part about “…All firearms laws are wiped (No FFL anyone can now own any weapon.)”

Since the only reason for a UBC is to prevent ‘prohibited persons’ (as *CREATED* by GCA’68) from owning, and there would no longer be any ‘prohibited persons’, the UBC would then become superfluous, and (indeed) yet another one of the ‘laws’ to be wiped!


I wont agree to any compromise of my god given/natural right to keep and bear arms. Even if the “other side” agreed to every thing stipulated, it would only be a matter of time before universal background checks were used to track who is buying the guns and then ultimately confiscate them. Universal backgroud checks – the beginning of the end of private gun ownership in this country.
