    Felons are allowed to buy guns at gun shows. I suspect that anyone who is enough of a gun nut to try to carry a gun on a plane will not worry too much about obeying the law against felons owning guns.

    The problem with political jokes is they get elected.

      checks.

      Their gun toting, felon, constituents wouldn't be able to buy guns.

      In a world of the blind, the one eyed man is a pariah. Ask Galileo. Ask Darwin.

    •  No, felons are never allowed to buy a gun. (0+ / 0-)

      They do buy them, but not legally.

      Most sales at gun shows are between dealers who do checks.  What is not regulated is private sales between non-dealers.

      Stupid question hour starts now and ends in five minutes.

      •  Felons are effectively allowed to buy guns. (0+ / 0-)

        If no one checks to see if they are felons, then it doesn't matter whether they are felons, and Republicans like it like that.

        The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
