With the recent events in Dallas, there's been renewed talks about gun control vs. second amendment freedom etc etc. So that got me wondering: in which US State could I, as a foreign passport holder on a tourist visa (and therefore not a resident), just walk into a store and buy a gun without any question asked? Or is it not that simple? I'm looking for specific states where the legislation makes gun purchase as easy as is being reported in the media.

Oddball American history question: Who was the worst Secretary of State? [more inside]
Can anyone explain to me the reason why the pay for members of the United States Congress is paid by the federal government and not their respective states? Was such a system ever considered and rejected and, if so, why? I recognize that the offices are federal, but their ties to their state is the very reason they are there. Wouldn't state legislatures want that control or were they happy to dump the costs onto the federal government? This seems like something that would have been debated very early in our history yet I can't find any info on it. Thanks.
