It’s Not Much Of A Point

The husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords generated nearly 4,000 comments on Facebook from people on both sides of the gun debate after he posted a photo of himself buying a military-style rifle — a purchase he said he made to demonstrate how easy it is to obtain the kind of firearms he's lobbying Congress to ban.

Unless Giffords’ husband is a criminal or plotting some sort of crime that requires an AR-15 to execute (heh), then the system is working exactly as intended.  Law-abiding citizens should be able to easily purchase any sort of gun they want without any delays or hold-ups.   I can’t say that I see how there’s a problem with this, unless Giffords’ husband is secretly a terrorist.
