A Pop slam? I'm wondering if Nick66 and Indy500 are the same person.

Also, Stevie Ray Vaughn avatar = yay.

Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had gone to the Tanner gun show
on Saturday and they took me back with them on Sunday. I
remember this as being in November or December of 1998. When
Eric and Dylan had gone the previous day, a dealer told them
that they needed to bring someone back who was 18. They were
both 17 at the time. This was a private dealer - not a
licensed dealer. While we were walking around, Eric and Dylan
kept asking sellers if they were private or licensed. They
wanted to buy their guns from someone who was private - and
not licensed - because there would be no paperwork or
background check. At one point Eric was interested in a gun
from a licensed dealer. The dealer asked me if I would fill
out some paperwork and I said, "No, I didn't feel comfortable
with that.' I didn't want to put my name on something that I
wasn't going to have control of.

They bought guns from three sellers. They were all private.
They paid cash. There was no receipt. I was not asked any
questions at all. There was no background check. All I had to
do was show my driver's license to prove that I was 18. Dylan
got a shotgun. Eric got a shotgun and a black rifle that he
bought clips for. He was able to buy clips and ammunition
without me having to show any I.D. The sellers didn't write
down any information. I would not have bought a gun for Eric
and Dylan if I had had to give any personal information or
submit to any kind of check at all. I think it was clear to
the sellers that the guns were for Eric and Dylan. They were
the ones asking all the questions and handling the guns. I
had no idea what they were eventually going to do with the
guns. When I look back at it, I think I was kind of naive. I
wish a law requiring background checks had been in effect at
the time. I don't know if Eric and Dylan would have been able
to get guns from another source, but I would not have
helped them. It was too easy. I wish it had been more
difficult. I wouldn't have helped them buy the guns if I
had faced a background check.

Signed

Robyn Anderson

Had Harris and Klebold waited until they were 18 and needed background checks, would anything had come up preventing them from owning the guns? I support background checks, but bringing them up as a possible deterrent to a specific case isn't very productive

That's terrible.

However, from what I understand, it's commonplace for people to have a gun underneath their pillows in South Africa due to the high levels of crime there.

Yea I believe so. But I still just don't see the point of keeping guns at home. I'd rather they make it extremely difficult for anybody to procure a gun.

from what i'm reading, doesn't quite sound like an accident.

of course, law abiding, responsible gun owners never, ever snap or fire their guns out of rage in a domestic incident.

never.

The link makes that article title horrible: Accidentally shot his dead girlfriend?

Yes, there was some looting going on, but the whole area did not look like New Orleans after Katrina.
