" If they bought them at a gun show they'd be in the very small minority of criminals who do so.."

Less than 2% to be semi-exact. ;)

Of course, an ignored point is that there is no reason most of the killers would have been stopped from getting a gun in the first place, even with background checks. Certainly there were no problems I can see for the last two bombers.

Why any mass murdered would not just make a bomb if they could not get a gun is a mystery to me as well.

That of course ignore the obvious that everyone mentions, that most killers would not mind commuting a crime to get a gun-- which of course would be far easier were there a gun registry.

and on and on
