New gun-control legislation is currently under consideration, but for now, it can be easier to purchase a Colt than cold medicine or even a collie.

So what's the point of this story?
How about things that are easier to buy without a background check.
Alcohol (regardless of what the story says)
Anyone want to add to the list
Read between the lines, this is just another anti-gun rant. Ignorance
My last reading of the constitution revealed no inalienable right to own a collie, a cell phone, or OTC cold medicine. It's amazing how easily democrats/liberals/progressives have shaped this debate to disparage law-abiding gun owners while ignoring the real problems afflicting our society: the breakdown of morals, easy access to drugs (legal and otherwise), the lack of prosecution of real criminals and no real consequences for those convicted, and a willfully ignorant electorate. Until such time as I can be 100% assured that no bad guy is going to target my family for home invasion or that I can trust all politicians to act responsibly in NOT working to take away my freedoms, I will continue to cling to my God and guns. "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin
You call this journalism? Is there no end to what you fabricate, and then call news?
Even my local bleeding-heart-liberal newspaper won't use you as a news source, you're that pathetic!
Keep up the good work, MSNBC, your credibility is ZERO!
This whole article is a load of Liberal %^$#@ You do NOT need to provide a soc no.for any hunting or fishing license here in Michigan, You do NOT have to be any special age here to buy a pet, I work at one of the largest sporting retailers in the country and we sell a lot of firearms. Every single purchase is controlled by very strict proceedures that follow all federal and state laws, we are trained and encouraged to refuse sales to anyone who we even suspect of straw purchases or illegal activity, Purchases from gunshows from licensed dealers are also strictly regulated and must undergo nics checks!
I just attended a QDMA banquet where guns were auctioned and raffled off, all winners were required to fill out a 4473 and undergo a nics check through the FBI data base before they took possesion of there firearm. It is true private sales of firearms is not regulated but then our own federal government participates in illegal straw purchases and then lies about it's involvement. (H_MMMM) Before articles like this are put into print maybe the person that write and the responsible parties for these articles should maybe have the integrity to fact check what is being written as truth, but then the agenda would not be followed. You writers make me sick with your untrue drivel and should be fired, The only thing worse than a government that lies to it's populace is press that lies just for readership!
Seriously, what a load of crap. You are blaming an object intead of the real problem- society! Video games and violent movies have desensatized our children to this kind of violence. Look at how you score in those games, headshots, no wonder our children are the way they are, and Hollywood liberals are fine making millions off movie violence, but have a problem with law abiding citizen owning a legal firearm.
Out of the 12996 murders in this country in 2010, 300 were with all rifles, 400 were with shotguns, 600 were with bare hands and feet and another 800 were with blount object. The majority of murders were committed with hand guns and the bulk of those were gang related. Mass shootings where the police were first there to stop it, the average number of people killed was 12 and when an armed citizen was present, that number was 2! So Joe, get a shot gun, but not a rifle to protect yourself.
This story is the biggest pile of sh*t I have seen in a long time, even for MSN
Our founding father were correct in there distrust for of the federal govenment, wouldn't it make more sense to let the states enact laws that better represent the constituates. Should laws be the same in Chicago as the are in Casper Wy.?
This story is a huge pile of stinking BULLSh _T.
Some educated IDIOT, Stating "fact's" they have created."Propaganda". Make a good politician someday.
The government is only after one thing, to disarm America. They don’t care about your kids or the kids from Newtown. Newtown is just a catalyst to get the ball rolling to take your guns. If you think they care about you and your children just ask your self if they cared about the women and children in Waco and Ruby Ridge? Waco 82 people mostly women and children, murdered. Ruby Ridge, a young boy and mother murdered by the government. Do you think you have anything to fear from people like that? They don’t care about you or your children.
