  •  I read it as (9+ / 0-)

    an exception to allow an individual to give a firearm as a gift with no mention of it being a banned weapon, just bypassing a background check.

    The second part would cover ranges or situations like when mr.uintas goes target shooting with his friend using his friend's gun. Or if he borrows his friend's gun and goes out without his friend.

      last year and I borrowed a rifle from a neighbor.

      Sat it in the corner of the bedroom.

      Never went to get ammo for it (I am SUCH a gun nut)

      I finally gave it back, unused. I wiped the dust off it.

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

        killed by her husband. It was a harrowing story and part of it included him threatening to kill me in various ways and places and times. (Ironically, even tho' he had a gun it was his big scary knife that stays in my mind)

        Anyhoo, I had an aluminum baseball bat practically glued to me until we successfully got his ass locked up. I literally never left home without it. And by coincidence when his best friend found that he'd been screwing his wife he chose the same kind of bat to beat the crap out of him with.

        Those were very interesting times I could have lived without.
