Teens buying guns

There was an item I saw in the news a while back that stuck in my mind due to its absurdity and the fact it's another example of "if they can get you to ask the wrong question..."

Should teens be permitted to buy guns after getting a background check?

You know my answer to that question- the imposition of a background check on anyone is unforgivable.  As is any imposed restriction on buying or selling any kind of gun to anyone (stores have the right to refuse to serve anyone for any reason).

But it also just illustrates the ignorance- no, the stupidity of the anti-liberty bigots.  Teens buy guns without background checks now.  In fact, it's the only way they can, since "legitimate" stores can't sell to them.

So the sensible thing is to end the background checks so they at least have the option to buy from knowledgeable and responsible sources who'll possibly give them good information or instructions- whoever that may be.
